There are many reasons that I believe I should be French. One: croissants. Another: fashion. One more: art history. Anyway, when my mom and I crossed Maman off of our coffee shops of NYC list, my dreams of being French resurfaced. Maman is a very small, very chic French cafe in SoHo. We ended up going this week on a whim, and I’m obsessed. Step through their doorway and everything from the decor to the floor to the scent of freshly melted chocolate will have you at their mercy too. Oh, if you’re in NYC right now, you have to go and try their lavender hot chocolate. Seriously, it’s what dreams are made of.
The Tribeca location is much bigger and has a full sit-down menu filled with French brunch and the same sweet treats as the SoHo shop. You can bet your bum I’m headed there sooner rather than later.
