When one is challenged with 48 hours in one of the worlds most sparkling cities- it's safe to say the challenge becomes apparent to fit as much as physically possible into a pretty tiny time frame. Although I had a list as long as my arm of new places to tick off (thanks Ghenet for the heads up on lots of beautiful spots)- due to jet leg and work commitments we didn't quite get to tick them all off, but managed to squeeze in these little gems below- so I thought I'd pop them all together in case you're in need of a few new nuggets of city inspiration. Until next time, NYC!

Having been on top of my 'breakfast-and-coffee' spot list for as long as I can remember, this rustic Tribeca hideaway is the perfect place to curl up in the city with eggs and soldiers and one of their ridiculously pretty coffee cups (I'm not being as daft as I sound, I promise- just you wait). With a full daily menu, ice cream pop up and bar boasting plenty of delicious fresh bakes- I certainly recommend popping one of their city locations onto your must visit list.

211 W Broadway, Tribeca, NY 10013, United States


Erin McKenna's Bakery

I seem to be becoming a bit of an expert at accidentally stumbling across gluten free and vegan donut spots (it's a niche talent, that's a given)- but this bakery in the East Village is one you couldn't really miss. Taking pride in their donut flavours, sweet loaves and cupcakes- there's something for everyone here (including kosher bakes)- plus I also spotted a signed Morrissey seal of approval in here too (which although I can't clarify is authentic, is a pretty cool shout either way).

248 Broome St, New York, NY 10002, United States


Coming Soon

If you're a fan of interesting and contemporary concept stores, Coming Soon, is one to swing by. Loaded with simple and modern home wares, artsy coffee table books and plenty of things you didn't realise you needed until you saw them (I'm looking at you gold fortune cookies)- this place is one to get stuck in to, and although it's not the most purse friendly spot in the city- it's worth having a nosey if you're close by.

37 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002, United States


Union Fare

Three words: red velvet croissants. Or birthday cake croissants. Or matcha. Or creme brûlée. Okay that's more than three- but you see my point, right? After being tipped off to this place whilst in the city- it seemed rude to not try one of their infamous bakes. Although there's plenty of various stands inside with lots of different cuisines (including trendy poke and a smash bar for all things avocado) it's the pastries here that really sing- just make sure to try one filled with ice cream if you're feeling especially indulgent. Wasted calories? I think not!

5-7 E 17th St, New York, NY 10003, United States


Tiny's

I'd by lying if I said it wasn't this places pink exterior that I'd seen floating around the internet that hadn't first lured me in. But after seeing a number of people mention Tiny's during NYFW, I knew we had to make a stop by. Booking in for a quick breakfast before leaving, we took a curb side spot for some serious people watching, friend catch ups and seriously delicious ricotta pancakes. Although I'm sure this place really comes to life at night (especially with the bar upstairs)- it still oozed that cool during the day time and had a pretty delicious breakfast and juice menu too- which is always enough to keep this gal happy.
