Last week, I strolled into the Earth Café. It is located at 2580 Broadway, New York 10025, on the north side of West 97th Street. The décor is simply charming: high ceiling, white brick wall, wooden ceiling fan, teal colored-chairs, and French doors. As I walked up to the barista, there were samples of cakes and brownies. Each bite was delicious.
“What is this cake?” I asked the young barista.
“It is Coconut Loaf. We bake it fresh,” he said smiling. “Would you like a slice?”
“What about coffee?”
“I just had an espresso, but next time,” I replied. “What a delightful café, I think it is the kind of place one becomes devoted to.”
I sat at a table and stared at the elegantly proportioned café on the Upper West Side. My Coconut Loaf was divine. And when I had finished eating, I thought of taking a slice to go. Yet, I stood up to leave, humming to the Bossa Nova soundtrack.
“Thank you,” I said, waving to the barista. “What is your name?”
“Yadin,” he said, “I will tell the chef that you enjoyed the Coconut Loaf.”
“Absolutely, and I’ll let my readers know too.”
