Gorilla Coffee and Trois Pommes

Breakfast via the B63 Bus
Long live the B63! I hopped on, heading for the Slope this morning. This sign look familiar, Puff?

Within minutes I was at the first stop: Gorilla Coffee. I jumped out, dodged traffic and jumped in the long line inside. It was especially hipsterish today. I, like usual, looked like a homeless.

In your honor, I got a latte. Yes, still delicious. Yes, still rich and strong. Stiffened my spine right up. I sat in the window and read the NY Times for a while. When I was done, I jumped back on the B63 again, headed down 5th Ave.
Next stop: Trois Pommes Patisserie. Yeah, well, there were like 33 things I wanted but I decided to go for an old favorite: the peanut butter sandwich. It was even better than I remembered, if that is possible. So crumbly and delicious.
I then followed it up with a red velvet cupcake. It was tiny - I popped the whole thing into my mouth in one go. Highly recommended Puff.

  1. Sign definitely looks familiar.. I sure am going to be taking this bus again soon :)

    Gorilla coffee is definitely the best I had in NY... the richness embraces you when you take the first sip.. plus the fact that all their barristers can make nice designs with the milk (ok, call me shallow.. but it's a plus for me!!!) Looks good, tastes good... what a deal!

    Trois Pommes.. ok, confession time... I never had a red velvet cake before so I cannot relate to how good it taste... next time you have to bring me to try this ok?
