Thrip Through TriBeCa

It's Day 2 of Welcome Week; move-in day's done and the Resource Center isn't quite so hectic.  Basically, that means it's officially the time when I get to leave the building!  For today, it was all about touring TriBeCa.

We started off at Billy's Bakery.  Located on 75 Franklin Street between Broadway and Church, this NYC favorite features a wide range of delicious baked goods.  Of course, they've got your classic red velvet, vanilla, and chocolate, but I decided to be  bit adventurous and try the banana nutella cupcake.  A beret of think, super-rich frosting rested atop the tiny, moist cake.  At $3.50, their prices were a little steep, but well worth it.  Plus their pretty, pastel decor and diner-inspired tables create the perfect ambiance to enjoy a sweet treat.

Next, we made a unscheduled pitstop at the Mysterious Bookshop.  Sherlock Holmes titles cover the shelves, and dime novels from the '50s line the tables.

For our quick coffee break, we headed over to Kaffe 1668 for iced lattes and biscotti.  Random sheep decorate their windows, and wooden benches help create a rustic feel for the coffee shop that's right in the middle of Manhattan.  As for their prices, they compare to Starbucks.  So, if you're in the mood for a cute, new spot, try it out.

As for the rest of my day, well I'll be flipping pancakes and packing for tomorrow's trip to GA.
