If you’re an East Village dweller, it’s crucial to identify the coffee shops that will guide you through this harsh world. For us, one of those places is Abraço - an espresso kingdom that’s been on East 7th Street since 2007. One thing to know - they decidedly don’t offer any dairy-free milk alternatives.

Along with your small cup of biting, chocolate-y espresso, pick up a piece of their olive oil cake. It’s so moist, it could almost be an olive oil brownie in disguise. The pastry and snacking menu here changes every day, but you can always find this bad boy on the menu.
