Perfect place for vegetarian people, cosy cancel light diner in an relaxing environment. A lot of courses are made live, so if you get the Chance, sit by the bar.

French café in a French setting. Very healthy meals for under 20$. We chose a seat at the bar/open kitchen and it was amazing. All fresh products and my banana tart was made in front of me, so not just store bought.

Great food - great value for money - very cozy - no frills! Try the watermelon mimosa and the avocado toast (without egg)! Love that place and always visit it when in NYC!

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
