Cafe Gitane NYC

Café Gitane is one of my all time fave NYC Cafe's. I adore this simple, casual, cozy, always humming, French cafe in one of my favorite neighborhoods, NoLita. I'm pretty obsessed with this spot & all of its NYC/Vintage French charm and try to go every time I'm in the city. 

Freeeeeezing cold, I made my way over to CG after my Sculpt class at ModelFit on Friday afternoon to warm my bones over a long lunch. As always, I stared at the menu forever, trying to decide what to order because I can literally order the entire menu! mmmm, everything is SO good! I sat at the bar (my fave) ordered a pot of green tea, delicious salad + side of their amazing carrot salad and decided that a glass of wine was a great idea. And then I had another! haha
I can't resist a good glass (or 2) of French Pinot Noir :) 

If your anything like moi...obsessed with all things French, love cute & cozy cafe's, enjoy good & healthy food/tea/wine, cool vibes, people watching...you should go to Café Gitane ;)
