“When the day comes that I am crying into my pillow over cupcakes of the past, I hope to be doing so with a box of bonbons from Nunu Chocolates,” said New York Times reporter Peter Meehan in a 2008 review of snacks sold at the Brooklyn Flea. For most, swapping cupcakes for Nunu’s bonbons would probably be a tear-free trade-off. That’s because Chocolatier Justine Pringle devotes herself to finding the highest quality ingredients she can for her candies. The best example of this is the cocoa bean she uses, a single-origin hybrid of Trintario and Criollo beans grown on a sustainable family farm in eastern Colombia. These form the base for an array of delicacies that hide decadent absinthe and espresso ganaches, bits of smoked Tennessee bacon, or stand on their own with up to 70 percent pure dark chocolate.

After moving from the south of France to break into the New York catering world, David Benizeri decided he was finally ready to have a "window on the street," according to Jenny Miller?s New York Magazine profile. And so, in the storefront of an old barbershop, Benizeri went to work creating Beny's Delice. There, amid dark reclaimed wood and a pressed tin ceiling, he and his former catering partner Tarik Slamani created a caf? that blends the Mediterranean influence of Benizeri?s Riviera home with salads, sandwiches, and a "very, very traditional French pastry case" that only watches Louis Mal movies without subtitles.

Chock full o’Nuts traces its history to 1926 when William Black opened his first nut shop, which eventually expanded to a chain of coffee shops boasting gourmet caffeinated brews, freshly baked goods, and sandwiches. Patrons sip from blends such as 100% colombian and french roast while munching on history with the Chock Classic, a cream-cheese-and-date-nut bread confection sweeter than a baby panda scaling a mountain of sugar. Sandwiches and wraps placate heartier appetites, and smoothies, iced beverages, and hot specialty drinks pour into cups with ambrosial panache.

A cup of joe in the morning can mean the difference between hitting the ground running and hitting the snooze button relentlessly. Give your alarm clock time to let its bruises heal with an Americano (a $2.25+ value) or an extra perky mocha (a $3.50+ value). Chill out by pouring an iced cappuccino (a $3.50+ value) or a so-cool iced latte (a $3.50+ value) over your steaming dome. After a month of regular Café Regular visits, you'll come to call its arty décor—murals, chandeliers, reflective bronze metalwork—your third home away from home, right after the Statue of Liberty's shin.
