I like to spend Sundays recharging... That usually involves starting the day off with an hour of yoga, followed by a long luxurious shower. Then I throw on a pretty sundress and a spritz of perfume before heading off to brunch with a few close friends. It's so simple, but this little routine on my Sundays have become one of my favourite things that I look forward to almost every week.
It's been a couple of months since the last time I saw Chloe during our brunch date in Berlin, but we're finally back in New York at the same time! We spent Sunday in Williamsburg at the most gorgeous cafe called Loosie's Kitchen. It took a while for me to get here from Manhattan with all the train delays this weekend, but even with that AND the wait that came with getting a table (you can be smarter than us and make a reservation :), I don't regret the time spent waiting and getting here for one bit at all! It helps when you have good company.
This place is honestly a haven for plant and design lovers. It would be my dream garden if I had one. I literally wanted EVERYTHING here from plants and the cushions to the giant bathtub of herbs. We waited in the adorable outdoor garden sipping on coffee and matcha while taking pictures, soaking in sunshine and swinging on macrame chairs hanging from the ceiling.
We were seated about 40 minutes later and I adored the way the menu matched the colours and playfulness of the interior design of the wall. Along with my cold brew and Chloe's watermelon matcha (which tasted very interesting - earthy and fruity!), we also got Loosie's fried chicken and waffles with fresh berries and spicy maple syrup and the grain bowl packed with shiitake and oyster mushrooms, purple kale, organic quinoa, beets, cucumber raita and mint topped soft poached egg. So yum.
It was the most beautiful and relaxing afternoons I've had in such a in a long time. If you happen to be visiting Brooklyn, I hope you can give this place a visit! :)
