Today’s Sweet & Caffeinated adventure takes us mid-city to Larchmont Blvd! Honestly, up until a couple of months ago, I had no idea that the Larchmont Village area even existed. Thank goodness I do now! It’s pocketed between Melrose Avenue and W 3rd Street and is peppered with adorable shops and restaurants. Larchmont Bungalow is one such establishment, and it’s where I enjoyed a quiet breakfast with a friend on a cloudy Sunday morning.
First things first – beverages! I decided to try a mint mocha espresso, whereas my friend, Jess, opted for tea. Clearly one of us has a bigger caffeine addiction!
This was the first time I’ve chosen a mocha beverage over a vanilla latte, and let me assure you, it did not disappoint! The mint flavor was a perfect touch.
I ordered the Vegetarian Egg White Scramble, sans roasted red peppers. No, I’m not a vegetarian…but anything that comes with fresh mozzarella, zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes is a must-have. I also opted for fresh fruit instead of breakfast potatoes, but immediately regretted this healthy decision after seeing some go by our table!
I rewarded myself for giving up the breakfast potatoes with a piece of their apple crumb cheesecake. It was incredible. Balance, friends.
I should also mention that Larchmont Bungalow has a number of gluten-free items on their menu, especially in the sweets department. Anyone looking for a gf whoopie pie? Go here.
What’s your favorite breakfast spot mid-city?
