Ancolie: Jars Galore!

I am back with a cafΓ© discovery! I occasionally walk by this spot on my way to class and decided to give it a try with a friend. The cafe has two to three small tables, nicely decorated with succulent pots and bright lighting. The overarching theme of the cafe seemed to be the reusable jars that they sell their food items in (even the wifi password had a witty touch related to jars!). Soy and coconut milk options are available for coffee drinks – kind of sad that they didn’t have almond milk, but the coffee tasted good nonetheless. Plus, the service was amazing – the staff was very kind.

 

I loved the idea of the food and beverage items being in glass jars. On my visit one morning to grab a quick breakfast and coffee, I picked up a matcha chia pudding, of course in a jar! I actually got to bring the jar home with me, and I’m planning on making my own little parfaits in the little glass container.

The cafe is located just off of Washington Square west on 8th street. If you want to find a spot to chat with a friend or just someplace to get some work done without having to fight for a table at Starbucks or Think Coffee, this is the spot for you.

Fancy brunch spots are nice when you get the change, but nothing is more relaxing and satisfying than sipping on some coffee at a cozy, quiet cafe. Last week, I had the pleasure of discovering this new Austrailian cafe super close to school! My friend and I walked in on a Thursday evening, and we were immediately greeted by a coffee counter with a giant espresso machine – and some nice Austrailian baristas/waiters who guided us to a table.

Prodigy Coffee

Spring break is drawing to an end… but I guess I’m not THAT bummed out since my dad will be visiting this coming week! Anyway, I invited two of my good friends to a coffee adventure in the west village. I’m always down for a good few hours of chatting over coffee, and Prodigy Coffee was the perfect spot for it.
