After living in New York City for a month, I've had the opportunity to try a lot of restaurants and cafes. The hardest part when moving here is finding the cute spots that are also still affordable. After trying out numerous places of all price points, I've found some of my favorite spots for my morning coffees, teas, snacks, and dinners. Take a look below at some of my favorites that I recommend trying the next time you're in the city:
Ralph's Coffee - if you're a coffee or matcha fan, you get get an A+ latte here in the Flatiron District.
Boba Guys has some of the best boba tea I've ever had...definitely a must, located at the Canal Street Market!
Snowfox - great for quick, cheap, on the go Asian food - serving sushi, ramen, bubble tea, and more!
Taco Dumbo - with multiple locations around the city, this is the CUTEST Mexican place I've ever been to, with amazing happy hour deals like $5 frozen margs and mini taco deals! My ultimate go to spot.
Located on Bond St, Coffee n Clothes creates lattes with designer name brand logos as the latte art. Surprisingly enough, these lattes don't cost anymore than your everyday Starbucks drink!
Cha Cha Matcha - my favoriteeeee spot ever to get a matcha latte. TOO. GOOD. 10/10.
Tipsy Scoop. The name says it all. Must be 21+ to order!
Loco Coco is an acai shop located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Great spot to get your morning smoothie bowl!
I just discovered Matchaful the other day on Canal St and it is a great spot for a collagen matcha latte!
