C&B is a plain little cafe just south of Tompkins Square Park where you can sit and have a quick lunch or an exceptional egg sandwich. This place isn’t especially fancy, but it’s cool and extremely casual. So roll out of bed, come here in sweats, and eat some eggs with pork belly or chorizo the next time you’re a little hungover. They also do some breakfast bowls and things involving curry, if that’s what you’re craving.
