Hungry Ghost is a good-looking coffee shop with a few comfy chairs (and a bunch of other places to sit). It’s sort of like a Starbucks you’d find in a more perfect world. It’s a good place for a casual meeting, and they also serve soups, sandwiches, and a few breakfast things. So stop by the next time you’re going on a coffee date with someone you met in an online literary chat room, and eat a hot sandwich. There are also a few other locations in Brooklyn, in case you’re on a coffee-shop crawl. Which is maybe a thing.

If you want to eat some avocado toast or a grain bowl in Gramercy, go to Citizens of Gramercy. It’s an Australian café, and it’s full of plants.
