I ate my way through NYC for 3 days

My trip started out quite hectic, since Sabby chose not to go, so I had to go by myself, which was totally fine, the only thing was I know had no F* place to stay, this happened the day before departure, so I THANK GOD for social media platforms, I found a place in East Village, I got an entire flat for the weekend, and it was marvellous. Since I was there by myself I decided to walk and eat and walk and eat an drink ALOT of coffee, cold brew was very popular! I also went sailing on the Circle Line, and a short visit to Brooklyn for my favourite Coconut milkshake in the WORLD!

These buildings matched my outfit that day, super cute

I was super jetlagged, and it didn’t really go away before I had to leave, which was a good thing.
So I woke up before anything opened but here at Lafayette they opened quite early, a little pricy, but the eggs where DELICIOUS, plus, it’s a great spot for people watching

Black seed bagels, 1 block away, made the best bagels I have had in ages, I literally went there every morning, and I took home a bunch. Baked right there:

From there to Abraco Espresso, a hole in the wall coffee shop with GREAT coffee and the staff were so friendly too. You tend to speak to every body when travelling by yourself.

One of the many things I love about NYC, the Delis and Whole Food Market and their HUGE variety of drinks

One of my favourite places on earth: Doughnut Plant, I seriously ate 2-3 doughnuts a day. The vanilla bean glazed is MOUTH GASM … I bought a box of 6 the day I left. OOPS

Then I went sailing, Fredesblog recommended a ride on the Circle Line, and it was great spending a few hours on the water, working on my tan while having a view of Manhattan from the river, and I got to see Miss Liberty and the bridges.. So Beautiful

What I actually came for in Brooklyn was THE coconut milkshake from Guacuco in Bushwick. I had it before, and it was just as good.

I finished my day at Miss Lilys where I had Jerk Chicken with rice and Beans, my cam run out of battery, so I borrowed a picture from here

And just like that 3 days past, and I headed back home to my most awesome family.
Got any questions, let me know. Oh and I give all my recommendations to Mommys out there, having an all you can eat weekend by yourself is truly F* AWESOME!! DO IT!
