When a bright, all-day spot serving toasts and grain bowls with pun-heavy names opens downtown, there’s a 91% chance that it’s an Australian cafe. And that’s the case with Charley St, a counter-service spot a few doors down from The Butcher’s Daughter in Nolita. The short menu almost exclusively consists of healthy-sounding dishes, like toast with coconut beet spread and a grain bowl with hummus and mushroom ragu. This place closes everyday at 6pm, but there’s plenty of seating for a casual sit-down breakfast or lunch, and it works for takeout as well.

Gran Tivoli is an Italian spot in Nolita that’s best for drinks and a light bite rather than a full dinner.
Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.
A simple Italian cafe that works in tons of situations, Epistrophy is one of our Nolita go-tos.
