Brunch at The Smile

I had read about The Smile for a while. So when Laurel came up to visit last weekend, I couldn’t think of a more perfect excuse to check this this place out. Tucked away off of a picturesque cobblestone street in Soho – Bond Street to be exact – this local hot spot was as cozy and quaint as described online. A relaxing atmosphere. Delicious food. Bold Stumptown coffee. Yep, we couldn’t have really asked for much more. Ah, I can still taste those blueberry buckwheat waffles…yum.

Tacombi at Fonda Nolita

Located in the heart of Soho on Elizabeth Street, Tacombi has become my most favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. Not only is it the home to the best crispy fish tacos around, and my most craved dish – corn-in-a-cup, but this place has such a cool vibe about it. When you’re here, it doesn’t feel like you’ve got the crazed city life outside the door. This place takes your mind to the beach-side lifestyle we all dream of living!

Chobani / Soho Cafe

One of my favorite things about living in New York has to be the amount of exploring you can do — you know, as if you couldn’t already tell! From new neighborhoods to new shops and restaurants, you never know what you might walk upon next.

Case in point was about a week ago when Derek and I stumbled upon the Chobani cafe in the heart of Soho. Who knew this yogurt company had an actual sit-down cafe?!
