After the Carolina Herrera show, Hamid and I (and later Mohib!) decided to go for brunch in the East Village. We were walking up 2nd Ave., and Hamid noticed the low-key Mission Cafe. He says the hole-in-the wall places have less space but more love. Word.
Their menu is a mix of Mexican and American food (for some reason they say it’s Middle Eastern on Yelp.com, but I think that’s because it seemed like everyone working there was…c’mon people! It’s definitely not Middle Eastern food!), with plenty of healthy options. Hamid got the egg croissant and I got the huevos rancheros. OK, but I am a little confused because I could have sworn I had taken pictures of our food. Instead, we took these before and after videos of our meal. Enjoy.
The food tasted healthy but had just enough flavor — it was also unassumingly filling. I did manage to take a shot of Mohib’s veggie omelette!
Not bad really, and good prices. Service was great too. I love brunch.
