Pause is a coffee shop and juice bar on the Lower East side with slouchy couches, salads and pastries, and mugs that you’d find in the home section of Anthropologie. The food and drinks are cheap, the vibes are cozy, and it’s a good place to post up when you need to get some work done on a weekend.
