House of Small Wonder is an easy place to miss. It’s an unmarked space a couple blocks from the Bedford stop in Williamsburg, surrounded by restaurants full of people wearing Stan Smiths. When you realize that this place isn’t a yoga studio and walk inside, you’ll find a cafe serving French and Japanese breakfast and lunch items like a croque madame and rotating sashimi bowls. There won’t be groups of people photographing their bacon Bloody Marys here, but you may feel the need to take a picture of the huge tree growing up through the floor in the middle of the space.
