If Good Thanks sounds like the sort of place that would serve avocado toast and smoothies with collagen, that’s because it is. It’s an Australian coffee shop in a narrow little space on the Lower East Side, and there are plenty of kind-of-healthy options here, like grain bowls and zucchini fritters. If you’re in the mood for some granola with fruit and algae, they have that, too. Come for a quick daytime meal, or stop by when you don’t want to wait for a table at Russ & Daughters Cafe (which is next door).
