Guys, I have a not-so-secret confession to make. I seriously love really cute cafés.

I love sitting in pastry-populated rooms with music playing, pink accents popping and other latte lovers parked on laptops rattling away at whatever they’re working on.

It’s like therapy. It IS therapy, for me! ;}

Artistic giraffe sculptures and adorably wrapped pastries? Take my money!

I found myself opening up Google Maps the other day and trying to run a search for “cute cafés” in Brooklyn. The results made me realize that search algorithms don’t really favor those with “cute” in their prerequisites for choosing a destination.

So, I decided to spend some time this spring and summer chronicling the cutest cafés in NYC as I find ’em.

I’m kicking it off with MacarOn Café in Tribeca…

The Café: MacarOn Café

The deets: 303 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10013. Monday-Saturday 9am—7pm, Sunday 10am—7pm.

The perks: To kick off this series, I had to start with the cutest pastry of all—the macaroon! This little spot is part of a chain of Parisian cafés. It has sleek, retro decor and a cute & casual vibe. It’s across from the park so pretty much any table comes with a view.

When I went, the snow was falling in huge chunks of white fluffiness and I was pretty much enamored. The WiFi is fast and the coffee is strong.

Go during the morning on weekdays and you’ll have the place to yourself.

Retro-chic lighting is a major theme.
