B Cup and Katy

There are so many great coffee shops in NYC, but my favorite is B Cup on Ave B and 13th St.  It just grabs my fancy, perhaps it’s because we’re so attracted to bright colors and you almost feel like you’re on the set of “Friends”, except it’s a little grungier and the people behind the counter are way friendlier and more interesting.

Almost every time I have a visitor, (which has been a lot lately) I tend to gravitate toward B Cup.  Not only does it have delicious treats fit for everyone’s tastes, it is comfy, in a great location (Alphabet City) and near an area of the city I love photographing and walking around.

Mmmm…I’m craving an Israeli salad as I write about it.  Thanks to my Canadian friend, Katy (pictured above) who accompanied me, I had my fill of decaf herbal tea, while she drank some delicious coffee.  We had one of those fabulous nights where we ate and walked our way through the East and West Village and talked for close to 7 hours.

I met Katy while traveling through Morocco a few months ago and was glad to have her visit.  Many of my closest lifelong friendships were made while traveling and I’m glad to have formed another one with her.
