There are now 10 locations in New York City for this wonderful family-run Swedish coffee shop and bakery. FIKA (fee-kah) translates roughly to: taking a coffee break with something sweet or savory. Don’t waste effort resisting a cinnamon roll at FIKA when you visit their first Central Park South shop.
Hole In The Wall
Coffee the way it is supposed to be… made by a neighbor and ready in about a minute – all on my walk to work. They serve a “Cortado,” an espresso with very little milk. It’s my early morning pick up. Hole in the Wall makes it perfectly and I haven’t seen it anywhere else in New York.
Pocket Parks, like Greenacre Park, NYC, are terrific places to spend quiet moments during the day. With a snack, or in place of one, a few moments spent here is a zen snack for your soul. It’s serene there – I feel centered after a few moments’ time at Greenacre Park.
