Crosby Coffee

Good morning! And hooray for a new cafe visit. I first heard of Crosby Coffee from Reed's awesome Instagram photo of it. I looked it up immediately and actually put it on my calendar for a Sunday visit. It was a bit of a schlep, especially as the F train was not behaving, but well worth it. It is quite a beautiful space, and I just love all the white with small pops of colors from miscellaneous tchotchkes and the many flowers around. Embarrassingly, I can't say anything about the coffee as I was sweltering and could only think of drinking an iced tea (which was great). J had a cortado but finished it before I could have a sip. Humph. They use Caffe Vita coffee, which I believe started roasting in Seattle. I would really love to have a space like this in the new neighborhood we're moving to.

On to the photos!

(This is a scheduled post as I'll be assisting on set today for a fashion lookbook shoot. Woot.)
