Mae Mae Café + Plant Shop
Mae Mae serves a vegan Latin-inspired menu, with plenty of coffee drinks like horchata lattes. It also doubles as a shop that sells plants, which are situated all around and in between tables. This all-day cafe in Mott Haven opens early, when you can get a breakfast burrito that any non-vegan would be happy with and some plant-based pastries. (We recommend the zucchini muffin.) For lunch, try the mushroom mole tacos or huitlacoche quesadilla made with ingredients from the owner’s upstate farm, which also produces a great pineapple hot sauce that you should put on everything here.
