I really love Chalait!  The hubs and I had just landed in NYC, and while we were on our way to get some breakfast, we saw Chalait – we had to stop by to check it out!

The place itself is so cute – bright, white, and open with clean lines.  The menu offers tartines, sandwiches, matcha, coffee, and tea beverages.

Teena welcomed us warmly, and gave us some suggestions and recommendations.  We ended up getting a Miso Butter Toast (crispy toast smeared with miso butter, a perfectly soft-boiled egg, sliced avocado, and a side of arugula salad; this was sooo yummy!  The saltiness from the miso butter paired perfectly with the crispy toast and the avocado; yum yum yum!); a Matcha Latte (matcha shot with steamed milk – I opted for whole milk; this had a wonderful deep matcha taste to it, and it was creamy from the steamed milk; it even came with a lovely latte art!); and, a cup of Chalait Hot Chocolate (matcha latte with chocolate sauce – this was not sweet at all, as it was more of a twist on the matcha latte with a drizzle of chocolate).

Anthony, who was the professional barista, was super cool and super awesome!

There are little hooks under the counter to hang your bags, and the place itself was a nice refreshing way to begin your day!  I would love to come back and try out their other plates and their other matcha-oriented beverages.  Check this cute little gem out!
