Pabade, a small bakery run by siblings with Venezuelan and Colombian roots, makes all of its own pastries, and also supplies many other area cafes. Popular treats here include buttery almond croissants, dense brownies, and Colombian pandebono, but also sweets for those with dietary restrictions like flourless financiers and vegan muffins. If you can’t decide what to get, order the box of assorted pastries for next-day pick up at the store - it’s always a crowd-pleaser.

Think is a pretty big coffee chain in NYC, and we’re partial to the NYU location where you can sit on a couch and eat a grilled cheese sandwich.
Sweetleaf is a chain of coffee shops, and the all of the locations kind of look like antique stores. We like the one in Greenpoint.
