You know when you’ve heard everyone talking about a place, see beautiful photos on social media and then you go and well, it just doesn’t live up to all the hype? Well, Buvette is not one of those places. I follow them on instagram and they post the most beautiful photos in just the right morning light…even on a rainy day. So last week when Madeline and I finally went, we were thrilled with every detail. The service was wonderful, the food delicious, the cappuccinos were seriously so delicious I had three… Madeline eats very slowly, but still, three?! The decor was my favorite part. It’s a bit rustic (obviously it’s in an old building in the West Village, but there were just enough shiny new items to add a touch of elegance. I loved the red cafe chairs and tables on the patio, red geraniums on the fire escape… pretty much perfection. They use a collection of old silver trays, white bone china, big bottles for water and of course cloth napkins all day long. It really is the perfect place. They are practically open all day and night. So when should we meet at Buvette?
