Dear Avocado Toast,


two hands nyc

Even though you became an overkill of an Instagram phenomenon (guilty) and the synonym of basic, I have a really hard time resisting your smooth consistency embellished with accessories like eggs, sea salt, red pepper flakes, and life in general. That thick ass bread–the end.

That’s Two Hands, which is practically my second home. And when life seems monotone, get your toast with scrambled eggs instead of a fried one. It’s the little things, except it’s kind of big and filling and really f*cking good.

Welcome to the best of both worlds, where you can get 1/2 an avocado toast and half a yogurt and granola bowl which is slightly mind-altering. Meet the “brekkie board” at Bluestone Lane and go inhale it immediately. Perfection, served with some crumbled feta. Or, an egg…

These poached eggs are somewhat of a porno. But like, better.

egg shop nyc

Egg Shop is a good brunch option if you can wake up at the crack of dawn and beat the rush. The place is tiny and the lines pack quickly, so get there before 10 and hustle. This was a good toast but not the toastess with the mostess. The smoked salmon tasted really fresh (props for the dill) and though the bread was pretty thin, it had a good seedy flavor. Go. The sandwiches looked pretty killer.

If I could get married in the Toby’s Estate in Williamsburg, I would. Though slightly overpriced, I love everything about it. From the abundance of natural light to the decor, this coffee shop is my jam. They also have a funky avocado toast, with sesame and tahini, which is a good spin. It’s tasty, but not worth going out of your for. But if you’re there, by all means…

I loved the vibe at The Elk, a West Village hideaway with a George Ezra kind of playlist. The downfalls: the tables are not for laptops, so if you are working, you will sit on one of the stools, which is fine for a while until your ass goes completely numb.

Best coffee shop wifi I’ve encountered thus far I believe.

The toast at The Elk was lacking a bit, but it works. Go for the coffee and cozy ambiance and sample another dish.

The end.
