Mudspot is the all-day cafe version of a coffee truck in the East Village, and they do weekday breakfast and weekend brunch. They have a garden in the back and serve things like huevos rancheros and an avocado sandwich with a fried egg and pickled jalapenos. It’s cash only, comfortable, and has a bunch of healthy, vegetarian options.
