Cafe Lalo is an adorable brunch spot on the Upper West Side. I can't remember how I stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant but I've been going to brunch here ever since I moved to the city six years ago. It has the ambiance of a European cafe and is most well known for it's cameo appearance in one of Tom Hank's finest films, "You've Got Mail" ;).
Mel and I are headed to brunch here tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited. Between their selection of omelette's (my favorite: goat cheese with spinach & fresh mixed herbs), giant/endless refills of delicious decaf coffee with a bite sized piece of chocolate on the saucer, and a delicious chocolate peanut butter tart post meal, how could not you resist this place. It also helps that it is within a 2 block radius from my new digs. Hopefully the weather holds up and doesn't rain. When the weather is nice, I love to sit next to the window and look out over the brownstone lined block and gaze at the tree's covered in white Christmas lights.
If you have been, what is your favorite thing to order on the menu? If you haven't been, I highly recommend checking it out, you will not be disappointed.
