Cutest cafes in NYC

I’m definitely a sucker for cute restaurants, I mean food just tastes better when it looks good right?  Whenever I travel, I’m always looking for inspiration and new places to check out- even if it’s just for the decor. Trendy interiors are quintessential to a pretty Instagram feed, and I’ve rounded up a list of some of my top picks in NYC.



Named best chocolate chip cookie by ny magazine and listed as Oprah’s  most “favorite things” in 2017, Maman is definitely the go to spot for sweet eats. The tabletop decor will make you feel like you are dining in a chic cafe in the South of France right here in the heart of NYC.

Where – Soho / Greenpoint / Tribeca

Light and airy, Old Rose is at the bottom of the Jane Hotel. This cute gem is perfect for a girls brunch that specializes in healthy-ish Italian.

Where – 113 Jane St,  NY NY 10014



Pink restaurants are definitely the “it” thing and Pietro Nolita is a big hit thanks to its bubble gum exterior. As if that’s not cool enough, the entire interior is pink as well. So..much.. yes.

Where – 174 Elizabeth St,  NY NY 10012

Rustic-chic oyster bar with Parisian art studio feels. The restaurant’s pink double doors at the front entrance have been bookmarked by many tourists passing by.  Best known for their oysters, crab dip and burgers, this is a place worth checking out. Did I mention it has pink doors?

Where – 1 Delancey St, NY NY 10002

Plant-based restaurant, juice bar and “vegetable-slaughterhouse.” Best known for it’s vegan eats and cozy atmosphere. I’ll be right here if you need me.

Where – 19 Kenmare St,  NY NY 10012



Edi & the Wolf is the East Village spinoff from Michelin Starred Chefs Eduard “Edi”  Frauneder and Wolfgang.” This traditional Austrian wine tavern has great spirits and plenty of beer. The outdoor garden area is ideal for groups and brunches.




Tea party for 2 please. I had my 25th birthday here and I loved every second of it. Great brunch, great music, and cute AF mismatched table setting.

  • Happy Mother’s day and Sunday friends. In case you need to be reminded, you are enough and you are appreciated! What a beautiful time to be a woman. Don’t underestimate yourself, ever. You are stronger, bolder, smarter and more capable than you may realize. Cheers to females uplifting and inspiring others, the world is a better place because of you.
Sooo I crossed off 2 major items on my list and it feels like a boulder has been lifted off of my shoulders. Office makeover complete✔️and wedding venue locked down✔️ (I am so over the moon to reveal the details on this >> It’s like the boho gods curated THE most perfect location I didn’t even know existed🧚🏼‍♀️) and what perfect timing too, I was about to throw in the towel out of frustration. It seems like every venue is an over-priced catering hall with the same factory style wedding. Can’t wait to share the planning with you guys!
OH and how fun is my office chair?! I wasn’t sure about it at first but I’m obsessssed. I’ll be sharing all of the details on my blog, I didn’t get a chance to post last night but it should be up by Monday🌛🌜
  • It’s OFFICE REVEAL day! I’m so happy I could cry. Here’s one of my favorite parts of the room, my zen little nook🌱
When designing this space it was important for me to have a creative corner where I can think/read/write sans distraction. I’ve been finding it hard lately to be alone in my own thoughts because of all the stimulation and instant gratification we have right at our fingertips. Gone are the days we’re forced to stare at a wall when we’re bored🤣
My goal is to implement more time to think completely unplugged and unfiltered with just a notebook and a pen - and maybe some hot lemon water. Just like the gym, client meetings and other non-negotiables, I’m challenging myself to block out 1 hour once a week to just think. 🧘🏼‍♀️✨
Anyone have any tips/advice for meditating?
PS- my pillow cases were just $39 (for ALL four!) I’ll be posting my whole office makeover on the blog tonight. #liketkit

  • I get a lot of questions about what the name of my blog means so I figured I’d give you a quick rundown.
5 years ago me and one of my good friends Christina (major boss babe- give her a follow @sunkissedbychris) started a fashion blog for fun. When thinking of names we tossed up the idea of “grace and vanity” but I made a typo and for some reason we liked it. That’s when @stylebygraveandvanity was born.
Fast forward to now I still have the same name but there’s different meaning attached to it. A synonym for grave means “having a matter of importance as a topic” and I think that describes 1/2 of my blog. I talk about real shit i.e. finance, career, and self improvement. The other half of my blog is keeping up with trends and fashion and all things in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with that being said, if you are not subscribed to my blog go do so now because you’re not going to want to miss what’s coming! That’s not just an open invitation for women- there’s something for everyone. I’m devoted to creating valuable content that’s not just girly and empty bs.
