If you’re looking for a little quiet and some showy soft serve in Herald Square, Nana’s Green Tea is the place. Choosing how you want your tea-rich matcha and hojicha soft serve can be as complicated as ordering eggs. Cup? Cone? Floating on a tea latte? But we stick to the matcha parfait, a tall glass that comes with a long spoon and layers of mochi globules, cream, cereal, and red bean paste. The corner cafe is uncharacteristically large for Manhattan, which means you can actually sit down and enjoy your treat. Come with a loved one and let the ambient piano music get you in a peaceful mood rarely felt in Midtown.
