If you look closely, Brooklyns street art is quite fascinating.
Each café is unique and different with their own vibe.
Tofu cream cheese & freshly baked everything bagel?

Don't miss out on this Experience!
PIZZA & A COLD BEER = perfection
Sometimes the most sketchy looking places make the best pizza. I found this "order at the window" small shop with an Italian couple that has been there for over a decade by the looks of it. Faded news papers on their door about their "Best Brooklyn Pizza" awards, with one TripAdvisor sticker too, so I went for it!
A couple Rules
1) Eat one slice only if you are starving (1 slice size is a half a pizza in Europe)
2) Take napkins with you, it gets a bit greasy
3) Be aware that nutritional level is VERY low, BUT don't feel bad eating it. Just bite in that cheesy tomatoey doughy piece and have no regrets, just enjoy it! A one time meter long pizza slice won't kill you!
4) Take it in a brown bag, sit down at a bar, order your favourite local beer and make this food and beverage pairing happen discretely (try not to show off your fantastic pairing to the bar tender) He or she might get jealous ;)
I love buying what ever looks fresh at the farmers market. I brainstorm and imagine what I could make with my ingredients, I get creative, take my recycled brown bag, all the business cards I took from each stand I bought from, and start writing down the menu. With a cold cider, a chilled out vibe in the bar and great music. I attach the business cards to the menu so that my guests I cook for know exactly what farm each of there ingredients on their plate comes from:)
From Farm To TablE
Oatly i Scream?
This was the best discovery ever!
This was a great surprise.
Since I am a fan of this oat mylk derived from Sweden I really was curious to taste this vegan ice-cream.
My friends and I tried the Stracciatella one. It was not bad at all :) Maybe just a little to sweet for me, but I am sure for "normal" ice-cream eaters it must of been just fine :)
Go eat Lunch HERe
"The Butcher's Daughter is a plant-based restaurant, cafe, juice bar and “
A couple years back, when I took a spontaneous weekend trip, to escape the reality of finals coming up, I discovered this gem. The Butchers Daughter was what inspired me for my café idea and also confirmed that vegan food is SO tasty!
I love everything about it. The décor, the vibe, the 100% plant based menu, their amazing juices and the fact that they try really hard to be sustainable and run an eco friendly business.
