interiors / lafayette café & bakery, manhattan

this past weekend, we visited new york for the first time since moving to denver. we were instantly greeted by the hum and rush of the energetic city i called home for nearly eight years. naturally, our trip was bookended (and bookmarked!) with food-related stops along the way, often stopping by a specific locale for a bite or just to take in the design.

my sister suggested we stop into the cafe of Lafayette, proclaiming it one of her favorite interiors in the city - and it was truly magnificent. i was transported to a grandiose Paris, between the hand-drawn scripted logo on the windows, to the pyramids of pastel macarons. the salty tear of rosemary lardon fougasse and creamy petit beurres wrapped in baker's string didn't hurt either.
