A Spicy Morning
Bored with conventional lattes? As much as we love a good espresso drink, sometimes an alternate flavor can give your day a fresh jumpstart. Wake up your morning beverage routine with an avocado smoothie or a cold-pressed juice at Cafe Clover. They’ve got all the hippest ingredients: kale, turmeric, chia seed—you name it. The village eatery features charming blue booths where you can lounge for hours—we recommend Saturday and Sunday brunch, though you should definitely show up early if you want to get in right away.
At Chillhouse in the East Village, you can enjoy concoctions that are named by their healing properties: Clean Me Out, Chill Me Out, Give Me Life, Spin My Wheels, Make Me Glow, etc. Plus, there’s a Get Me Golden Turmeric Latte that puts a cleansing spin on your typical espresso drink. Oh, and did we mention that you can get one of the city’s best manicures here?
