It’s hard to resist the almost cartoonishly good-looking egg sandwiches as this Korean-influenced cafe. Two slices of thick, supersoft brioche bread are used to hold fluffy scrambled eggs paired with everything from bulgogi to avocado, which comes with a squiggle of spicy sauce. Being a coffee shop, this spot also has plenty of espresso, flat whites, and lattes, along with croissants and other pastries. If you’re looking for something sweet and cold, however, try one of the sweetened shaved ice concoctions called bingsoo in flavors like sesame and matcha.

It’s the two slices of fresh, delicate brioche that set this egg sandwich apart—and, to make it work, the whole precarious thing is served in a specially made paper holder. Stuffed in the middle is an equally thoughtful combination of fresh avocado and fluffy omelette finished with red onion, lettuce, and a squiggle of hot sauce. You’ll gulp this down in a New York minute.
Iced Matcha Latte
We love the prelude—watching the green matcha slowly swirl into the milk—as much as the drink itself. Fully blended, this bright green treat is sweet and just a tiny bit bitter.
