Bluestone Lane is basically a coffee shop empire at this point, but if you’re looking for a more full-on daytime meal, head to the original location on Greenwich Avenue in West Village. Pretty much everything about the experience will be attractive, from your Australian server to the string lights to your yogurt bowl. There will be many people Instagramming their food instead of talking to their dining companion, but you’ll be too content with your well-made latte and actually pretty great food to be annoyed. It gets crowded on weekends, so get there early or be prepared to wait.
