jacks wife freda

May 19, 2014

address: 224 lafayette street
neighborhood: nolita
avocado toast: mashed avocado on seeded bread, cherry tomato jam, pickled carrots and za'atar. 
so delish! not your standard salty, chili pepper avocado toast. the cherry tomato jam added a spicy yet sweet kick.
granola: grapefruit and granola. grapefruit and mint, lebanese yogurt, granola and honey. refreshing and amazing.
coffee: stumptown bottomless drip. enough said.
branding & paper: jack hearts freda. gimme some sugar. dude, thats sweet. hello my sweet. pour some sugar on me. #jacklovesyou
mildly adorable. its everywhere, but tasteful. from the outside awning to the sugar packets to my little to-go coffee. 
we even sent my little sister a postcard before we left :)
service: probably the best i've ever had in nyc. freda is there to greet you herself, and she is the sweetest, most welcoming hostess.
waiter was great and our food came in a timely manner even on the busiest of saturdays.
atmosphere: small, adorable, happy, quaint, bustling, casual. the perfect little spot on one of the cutest little streets.
highly, highly recommended. they don't take resys, but definitely worth the wait!
