Two Hands, New York City
I have been notorious for my ardent love of places that serve coffee, sweets, stock Aesop hand soap, and have some form of white brick. It definitely helps that Two Hands, the new Aussie-owned coffee store that opened in Little Italy within the last month, happens to fulfill all of the aforementioned criteria, stocking vegan milkshakes made with Van Leeuwen Ice cream, coconuts with Two Hands stamps, iced white tea served in mason jars, as well as ricotta toast and some lovely Flat Whites. In addition to all their delectables, Two Hands stocks a great selection of independent magazines, my favorite as of late being men's magazine Inventory. I highly recommend the place despite the almost ridiculous influx of Instagrammers that make the daily pilgrimage there.
