The Little Bird
Are you an Alphabet City vegan with a sweet tooth? Get ready to gorge, because this charming coffee and bake shop is full of vegan sugary treats. How about a slice of cran-apple cinnamon pie for $3.50? In fact, why not have two slices? They've also got tarts and macaroons, with plenty of organic coffee options to wash down your fix. There are a few gluten-free offerings on the menu, chocolate lovers will crave their choco-cherry bomb. The spot evokes the charm of a country café with rough wooden floors and exposed brick lining the walls. While their focus is currently on the sweets, they promise to introduce some sandwiches and small plates once they get into the swing of things. Frequent visitors take note: just because it's vegan doesn't mean you won't pack on a few pounds!
