The Elk


128 Charles St, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The Elk is a coffee shop in the West Village, and it’s about as “cute” as you’d expect for that neighborhood. It’s bright and well-designed, with a few tables and some stools in the window. They also do some healthy-ish breakfast/lunch items that you’ll find listed on a big piece of butcher paper. Expect stuff like scrambled eggs with sweet potato hash, a rice bowl with vegetables, and some sandwiches. And if you recently ran out of candles, journals, and succulents, you can buy those things here. They have a small selection.
