Beans & Leaves
Let’s start with our favourite place that is a must when visiting New York City.
Located in Staten Island, a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry from Manhattan, Bean & Leaves Cafe is a must for travellers looking for a warm friendly atmosphere with great priced food, delicious creations and the best service we had during our stay.
We tried the Peanut Butter Overload waffle. Our taste buds were pleasantly surprised at the perfect blend of sweet and salty with the right amount of whip cream.
We also tried the Hungry Man Waffle which was more than meets the eye. It may look simple on the outside with the shredded cheese but it’s bursting with flavour on the inside. It has a full potato in the waffle mix and savoury not sweet. It filled me up perfectly.
And of course it wouldn’t be a great cafe without the hot, fresh and delicious flavour of the day coffee to round out this dining experience. Served by the friendliest staff that was so accommodating we wished we had a longer stay so we could come back again.
We will definitely make this a must visit every time we are in New York!
The End in Brooklyn
For a unique latte The End is worth the visit to Brooklyn. Beautiful crafted lattes with ingredients like coconut milk and other plant based ingredients. “Spiritual awareness and feel good philosophy” is their goal. They have handmade organic snacks and are famous for their unicorn lattes We highly recommend stopping at this small but quaint coffee stop.
