We had one final stop on our tour of NYC this weekend – a visit to Pushcart Coffee, which KERF reader Lisa opened last year! She actually was thinking about moving to Cville and came to visit me but yesterday I got an email that she had a change of heart and bought a coffee shop instead!
We walked 3/4 of a mile there for breakfast this morning and met up with Ashley and Bo.
We paid our tributes to Mr. Jefferson on the way
Lisa and her business partner have done an outstanding job on the shop. They have a sweet breakfast menu as well as sandwiches and in addition to coffee, they’re also making scratch-made rugelach, a traditional Jewish pastry made of flaky layers of dough and filling. True to their lower east side neighborhood roots.
I went three for three on yogurt and granola. Can’t get enough this weekend! It’s such a great breakfast balanced with protein and carbs.
This was the best granola of the weekend – made in the coffee shop.
Café au Lait
We also tried a baked [gluten-free] donut that was very tasty!
Lisa brought out some of the rugelach on the house for us to try.
It was fantastic! Like a flaky cinnamon roll
Pushcart Coffee is very blogger friendly : )
We said farewell to Ash and Bo and are headed to the train station now.
I have mixed emotions about going home. On the one hand, I love mountains, small towns and quaint neighborhood streets. But on the other hand this trip plucked at my urban side. I will have to find ways to be more urban in Cville [like actually GOING to our coffee shops!]
