Happened upon this lovely cafe while walking the Lower East Side on a snowy April morning. Simple breakfast fare--French-ish with a Moraccan flare. Perfect cup of coffee Americano, croissant and fresh fruit...and wonderful service from Lily. Only wish I'd come across it later in the day to try some of their interesting lunch offerings.

Such an inviting cafe on MOTT far enough away from all the tourist traps and t-shirt shops. Excellent food and great service. The baked eggs were fantastic and the avocado toast on gluten free bread made us think of home (California). There is a line on weekends so I suggest weekdays.
