Do As The French Do With Coffee, Twinkle Lights & Live Music In The Bronx
Anything is possible—a good reminder in life, love, and when searching for a Parisian spot all the way up in Riverdale. Mon Amour Coffee and Wine makes the most of its small space with huge windows draped in gauzy white curtains, framed mirrors, and chandelier lighting. The friendly baristas are prepared to offer you everything from a strong cup of drip coffee to a sea salt caramel latte—whatever pairs better with your almond croissant. If you're looking for something heartier than a french (or vegan!) pastry, they have flatbreads layered with prosciutto, gruyere, and fig marmalade that will have ta chérie asking for un petit bite. As the daylight fades, they have wine and an impressive selection of beer to mellow out your caffeine buzz.
After a walk through Jerome Park and Reservoir, double back to quench your thirst at Tilila. This neighborhood bar is best at slinging tropical drinks, like their banana mojito or passion mule, a spicy and sweet vodka drink worth springing for a pitcher. Rainbow twinkle lights and brightly painted cabinets that house everything from teacups to birdhouses to make up the eclectic decor. Almost every night there’s live music, so you and your partner can vibe on karaoke, local DJs, or bands late into the night.
