Let’s Grab A Bagel In New York

New york city has always been a special place for me — the city can turn your life upside down in one day, where everything is possible.

I like to wander around the streets exploring new little shops, and It may sound strange, but one of my favorite things is to check out Wholefoods and Trader Joes.

I love that in the US, these organic and more health focus stores are easily accessible for everyone, and you don’t have to make a special trip you can find at least one of them just a few blocks away. ( Ohh, and did I mention the prices are much much better?!!!)

My latest trip was only for six days, and I tried to see the city from a different perspective. How easy it is to stay plastic-free and eat plant-based without booking a table for every night.

Most of the places now offer vegan or dairy-free alternatives, even the small bagel shop at the corner. But I had to check out some of the “Insta Famous” places to give you guys an honest review of how good they are.

The Butcher’s Daughter

The Butcher’s Daughter is a plant-based restaurant, cafe, juice bar & “vegetable slaughterhouse.

I went to the Brooklin brunch in Williamsburg. If you’re looking for a plant-based brunch spot, this is the place to go. If you were planning to visit, try to make it as early as possible as it does get busy, and they do work on the first come first base. I highly recommend trying one of their juices (I had the watermelon one and was delicious) The only thing was a bit disappointing that I have spent 2 min taking pictures and both my friends and my food got completely cold.

I ordered the avocado toast with some poached eggs and potatoes. My friend went with the french toast, and I have to say her dish was a bit disappointing. Instead of brioche, their used standard sliced bread and for two slices with a bit of berry was overpriced.

Apollonia is an east williamsburg cafe by day and restaurant by night, serving coffee, breakfast and lunch casually from the bar throughout the day before transitioning to a full service mediterranean restaurant and wine bar at night.

A perfect little spot to grab a morning coffee with a fresh pasty. I went during the week, so they don’t serve breakfast but still on my list for next time to try the brunch menu. This place has the real neighborhood’s favorite type of vibe.

Malibu Farm

In New York, Malibu Farm bringing you a taste of the Malibu we love. Malibu Farm is a home, a community, and a desire to live local, eat local, and celebrate local.

Malibu Farm has been on my list for years since I discovered their first brunch in Malibu Pier. Organic locally sourced ingredients are thicking all the boxes for me. I went to grab an acai bowl. However, it seems like everyone else had the same idea because when I got there, the waitress told me they are out of acai. So I went with a berry smoothie and some granola. It was tasty and filling, so actually, I won’t mind I don’t get the smoothie bowl.

A coffee shop that is committed to being environmentally and socially responsible. Urban BackYard NYC want to influence the coffee market through eco-conscious practices ​and to help all people make choices and decisions that help conserve our natural resources.

And last but certainly not least, my favorite spot was Urban Backyard. A tiny vegan coffee shop in the heart of Little Italy. This small shop is plastic-free – they are using HEY Straw instead of plastic or paper one.

The cupcakes are so beautiful. I can guarantee you to take at least 100 pictures before even start to thinking of eating it.

I am mildly obsessed with bagels, and these guys get it right.

If you have a chance to go and try the Tofu cream cheese toasted bagel In my favorite shop ( Bread Brothers Bagel Cafe ) at Williamsburg. You need to take the L Subway line to Montrose Av. You will find the Bagel heaven at Bushwick Ave and Scholes corner.

New York is one of the city’s that can give you the experience what you’re looking for. What ever it is.

But if you are looking for some side seeing recommendation other than just wondering around downtown or Brooklyn, my top advice is.

The Roosevelt Island Tramway is an aerial tramwayin New York City that spans the East River and connects Roosevelt Island to the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The tramway is the first commuter aerial tramway in North America, having opened in 1976. Since then, over 26 million passengers have ridden the tram.

You don’t need to buy any special ticket for it just use your Subway card as normal. And If you want to get the best view just stay by the door! ( My friend read somewhere as a recomendation ad it is the best view! We tested! )

I have been in New York in some of the good and bad days too. But still, every time I have to leave, it’s getting harder and harder, it doesn’t matter that I have spent only a few days there or a few months.
