Alita Cafe attracts a lot of East Williamsburg residents thanks to great coffee, an exterior that looks like a stray Amélie set piece, and a BEC that neighborhood regulars schedule their morning meetings around. The hearty BEC sells out by mid-afternoon, thanks to a homemade chorizo-cheddar biscuit. But where Alita really earns our devotion is their chocolate chip cookie. It’s big and a bit cakey, more like a muffin top with crispy edges than a chewy cookie. Honestly, cookie beats BEC when it comes to our breakfast options at Alita, but ideally you’ll arrive early enough to get both.
