Maman NYC - coffee bakery kitchen. It wasn't the sign outside saying "now featuring GLUTEN-FREE banana chocolate marble teacake" that made us want to come in during our Soho shopping sprea. Nor were it the "best chocolate chip macadamia cookies in NYC" or the famous lavender hot chocolate.
We just had to come in to get our hot tea and latte-to-go in one of these super cool little blue and white coffeecups!
We asked the barista to take it slow so we could really soak up the homey feel and the intimate French atmosphere of Maman.
The seats in the back were almost all taken by people who seemed to be enjoying eachothers company and the delicious looking food. Maman has lots of good stuff on the menu. Salads, sandwiches, soups, pastries, desserts and artisanal breads made fresh daily.
Ah. Maman. J'adore! We're suckers for a decor like this. The place is very instagramable.
Did we already mention we love the French cafe style and homey feel of Maman?
