A beautiful mess

如果只有兩年可以揮霍, 那就留給紐約吧!

Abraço Espresso

如果在紐約只能拜訪一家咖啡店, 我想那大概就是Abraço了。

Abraço是在東村的一家小小咖啡店, 真的很小, 比紐約一般人的公寓都還要小。沒有座位, 當然也沒有無線網路, 差不多就是你想要的它都沒有, 但你沒想到的它都有。有點像是歐洲式的, 問你內用還外帶, 內用就是站在吧台邊或者是窗邊, 或者是在店外面有小小的吧台(基本上就是在人行道上喝咖啡的感覺, 不過是站著)。雖然這跟我心目中應該要有咖啡店的條件有一定的落差, 但Abraço算是目前為止自認紐約咖啡店的前幾名(另一家是Cafe Grumpy)。

咖啡好喝, 價格還算合理。Drip cofee都是一杯一杯煮的(Cafe Grumpy也是, 不過它們有很厲害的機器-Clover), Abraço是用濾紙沖熱水(怎麼用白話寫出來有股很虛的感覺!?)。然後他們也有隨季節變化的菜單, 是阿, 小成這樣但還是可以serve 3-course也算是了不起。不過他們的pastry很特別, 可以看這個photo set
