Mondates Were Made For Anytime Breakfast And Filling Desserts

  • Dessert
  • Food

Keep things simple at the start of the week by checking out Grey Dog in Soho. This homey café has a loyal following of NYC students and breakfast aficionados, and now we know why. We honor those who worship at the alter of brekkie sandwiches at all times of day. The fried chicken with egg on toasted brioche with mayo, pickled sweet potato and cucumber is absolutely delectable after a hard day at work. We know we’re sending you to dessert after so splurge a little here with a side of bacon. A little indulgence is what Mondates are all about.

Now head to Rice to Riches, where rice pudding gets the gourmet treatment. After a few generous samples of flavors like Sex Drugs and Rocky Road, Hazelnut Chocolate Bear Hug, and Oreo-gasm, you’ll rapidly rethink your stance on the oft-overlooked dessert. Order an Epic and choose two flavors to split, then find a bench in Sara Roosevelt Park to cuddle up and enjoy your evening. If you’ve re-discovered your love of rice pudding, they’ve got a Monthly Friend membership that involves Sumo containers of rice pudding. Get after it.
