Last week my friend and I ended up at babycakes NYC after ditching an office happy hour. We were both craving something sweet and being that my friend is vegan, Babycakes was a no brainer decision! So we trotted over to the bakery and we amazed by the amount of vegan and gluten-free options they offer! In addition to the bakery, there is also an adorable dining area, perfect for an afternoon date!
We loaded up on donuts, cupcakes and cookies and we were so pleased by how yummy these treats were! Babycakes is a spot we will definitely be going to again!
I recently went to Azuri Cafe on 51st Street b/w 9th & 10th Avenue to have a late lunch and although I was quite full after lunch I couldn’t resist the urge to have a sweet treat and I was not disappointed! My sweet treat was the Turkish Baklavah and it was a bite straight out of Turkey! The Baklavah was soft, moist and the perfect blend of a flakey upper layer and solid bottom layer. I paired this with a cup of Turkish coffee and I sat in Azuri thinking this was the perfect afternoon!
I urge you to check out Azuri for their lunch options as well as sweet treats! You won’t be disappointed!
Cha-an Tea House is a perfect place to take your date on a lovely Spring afternoon. This elegant Tea House makes me feel warm, welcomed and happy whenever I trek down to the East Village to enjoy a yummy cup of tea and dessert treat. Cha-an is a place everyone will enjoy as they offer something special for all of their patrons. Think they only serve tea? Cha-an offers a wide variety of options ranging from coffee, sake, wine and beer in addition to their huge selection of their signature teas! What Tea joint would be successful in NYC without offering a bite to eat? Cha-an also offers light breakfast and lunch options and delicious desserts as well!
Check out Cha-an next time you and your sweetheart are in the East Village!
DiWine was the first wine bar I went to when I first moved to New York City. Located in a cozy pocket of Astoria just off the Queens Borough Bridge, DiWine offers a wonderful selection of wines, cheeses and desserts to appease any wine aficionado (and sweet tooth). DiWine has the feel of a lounge, a classy bar and a restaurant all rolled into one and will set the mood right for you and your sweetheart. I love DiWine’s selection of wines. My favorite type of wine is white and DiWine does not disappoint.
DiWine is a perfect spot to have a fun first date. It is elegant, romantic and very cozy so check it out and tell me what you think!
