Never too much coffee

Getting coffee on lazy weekends is so much more enjoyable than getting it during the harried morning rush hour on the weekdays. Yesterday, I finally (after three failures) managed to get to Abraço in the East Village during a time it was actually open. Of course I had already guzzled down a drip coffee from Kaffe 1668 by this time, so that might have been a little unfair to Abraço. It certainly isn't the most photogenic of the cafes I frequent, but it also has no space to be, with just barely enough room to stand a handful of people.

I love when menus are this simple.

I've blogged about Jack's before, but it's probably the best cafe near me and somehow, I never tire of taking pictures here. It must have something to do with the brick wall and wooden furniture. Ahh, love.

  5. i agree w you wholeheartedly - one can never get enough coffee. well, if one is over-caffeinated for the day, then decaf is an option since it's the taste that i love.

    i am really loving your photos - so gorgeously composed and processed!
