When a bright, all-day spot serving toasts and grain bowls with pun-heavy names opens downtown, there’s a 91% chance that it’s an Australian cafe. And that’s the case with Charley St, a counter-service spot a few doors down from The Butcher’s Daughter in Nolita. The short menu almost exclusively consists of healthy-sounding dishes, like toast with coconut beet spread and a grain bowl with hummus and mushroom ragu. This place closes everyday at 6pm, but there’s plenty of seating for a casual sit-down breakfast or lunch, and it works for takeout as well.
