It’s easy to find a sexy little bar to have a sexy little drink. But what about a coffee shop, with tables small enough that you can play footsie with someone while leaning over a grain bowl and swapping bites of tamarind glazed plantain? Enter Che, a tiny Bed-Stuy spot (from people behind Daughter and The Fly) and a serious Saturday morning scene with cow print pants, emerging clog brands, and a towering breakfast sandwich. It’s got soft scrambled eggs, pimento cheese, and paper-thin slivers of pickled green tomato, stacked on a toasted brioche bun that’s slick with paprika mayo. Eat it at the counter in the window with a friend, or huddled over a small table with someone who’s not yet a friend, but who you’d really, really like to see again.
