Here at NOBREAD, we spend a lot of time in Coffee shops. And by a lot of time, I mean we choose a different coffee shop pretty much every day to set up shop and work… (and eat). The best part about coffee shops, other than scoping out the scene, is the plethora of coffee options to keep us caffeinated and awake throughout the day.
Regardless of what cafe you find us at, you will likely find us with Leaner Creamer in tow. This all-natural powdered coffee cream promotes weight-loss and appetite suppression, and is non-dairy and coconut oil based! It is a healthy compliment to your coffee will have you full and satisfied as you work away. Not only is it perfect for coffee, but it can also be used in several other classic, cafe dishes! I like to add it to oatmeal!
Here are NOBREAD’s top five favorite coffee shops for any occasion. Whether you’re looking to take a break, to catch up with a friend, or simply to take in a peaceful atmosphere, you should definitely check these spots out!
This Australian influenced café attracts crowds of eager “brunchers” hoping for a quick bite of wholesome, natural fare, as well as a taste of Bluestone’s popular coffee. Their brunch menu is all day and incredibly gluten-free! They carry gluten- and dairy-free bread so that you, too, can enjoy the famous avocado smash on toast.
The Elk is the perfect spot for a solo lunch or place to meet a friend—with a huge selection of NOBREAD friendly menu items, from their market rice bowls, to yogurt bowls, you’ll definitely be leaving full and satisfied. Not to mention, The Elk has unlimited wi-fi!
An adorable café in SoHo, Maman boasts delicious baked goods and casual café fare. Grab a bite to eat during their breakfast, brunch, or lunch hours, or sip on some coffee while finishing up on some work. Definitely check out their variety of gluten-free salads—the zucchini noodles with black olives, basil, plum, and a kale-basil pesto is a personal favorite.
Nestled in the heart of West Village, Chalait specializes in a signature line of matcha green tea beverages, while also serving up a variety of coffees and light breakfast and lunch options. For those dessert lovers, the gluten-free and vegan chocolate coconut cookie is a must!
An adorable, tiny French café serving classic pastries and sandwiches; Petite Coccotte will have you feeling like you’re dining in a quaint café in the heart of Paris. The endive salad with walnuts and apples, and the roasted chicken sandwich (nobread) are clear winners.
