Cafes & restaurants in New York: our best addresses

In New York, gastronomy is renowned for being mainly dedicated to fast food, but going a little further, New York stands out for its great culinary diversity. You will find dishes for all preferences: Australian brunch, seafood, American steak house and more!


Let's start with Devoción, a place located in the heart of Brooklyn, perfect for working in peace around a café with character. It should be noted that Devoción is present in three other locations in New York, but we have chosen the best and most central for you.

Devoción Coffee sources its coffee from Colombia and roasts it in Brooklyn. This explains its name as well as the quality and finesse of its coffees, which you can drink under high ceilings and in comfortable leather seats.

On the menu side, the chain offers savory and sweet pastries: croissants with guava and cheese or leek and parma, banana bread… Teas, drinks with or without coffee are also available, with optional vegetable milk if you wish. The establishment also offers its own coffees and sells them at retail. You can therefore leave with your coffee with notes of cocoa, vanilla or even peach, honey… And all this at a fair price.

According to your desire, you can consume them on the spot, to take away, or in delivery! The wait is moderate on site, so we advise you to go there early in the morning. Try Devoción and write to us on Instagram @ldb_paris to give us your impression!

Kobrick Coffee Co.

We're going to the Meatpacking District this time, since we suggest Kobrick Coffee. There reigns here a joyful and warm atmosphere against a backdrop of Spanish music. The environment of this place contributes to it and it is also what we come to seek here; the colors are in shades of brown mixed with wood, accompanied by plants and vintage armchairs placed here and there... Ideal for a moment with friends or as a couple indoors or on the outdoor terrace.

This cafe offers a wide selection of snacks: sandwiches, carrot muffins or Babka, brunch with salmon bagels or Acai Bowls and Grilled Cheese, salads and more. They also offer various drinks with and without coffee, coffee by the pound or in sachets to take home. Enjoy beers, wines and cocktails during happy hour until 6 p.m. on weekdays!

The Kobrick Coffee offer is a little more expensive than that of Devoción, which can, among other things, be explained by the fact that the prices are higher on the island of Manhattan.

If you do not want to have too many people around you, prefer morning hours on weekdays.

sonny boy

We are taking you this time to Sonny Boy, in the Bowery district of Manhattan! A hyped little Aussie cafe equally suited to locals and visitors alike.

What we appreciate here is the relaxed climate, the small terrace with its porch at the entrance, the wooden tables and the fact that the place is mainly dedicated to brunches and seasonal food (probably the one of the best brunches by the way). Avocado toast, burgers, fig toast and burrata with gluten-free options can therefore be served with a glass of wine, cocktail or espresso. And at a reasonable price range.

Café during the day, wine bar in the evening, this place is perfect for a drink and a treat with friends or as a couple! A victim of its success, Sonny Boy is very popular on weekends, the take-out and delivery option may be a good alternative.
