Café Gitane


Film: Kodak Ektar 100

Cafe Gitane at The Jane became our regular breakfast spot. The avocado sandwich above became Sølve's big favorite.

My favorite was the granola with yoghurt and fresh fruit. And coffee of course.

I loved the French/Moroccan inspired interior of Cafe Gitane, as well as the high ceilings and all the light. The staff were friendly and wore cool clothes. Seems like a popular place; it was always rather busy and there was a line to get a table for brunch on Sunday. Then again, it seems like standing in line to get a table is a regular thing to do in this big city. We did it more than once.

  8. Such good pictures! New York is at its best in the fall, I think. Weekend brunch is big business in American cities, and it's common for people to make reservations for such meals (just like you would for dinner at a mid-level or upscale place). That said, Cafe Gitane sounds like it was perfect for your needs! And both the interior and the food look fabulous.
