Iced latte ($4)
Lafayette St. & E. 4th St.
Fantastic iced latte. Delicious olive oil cake. And for $4 and $3, respectively, the prices at La Colombe Torrefaction aren't too ridiculous either.
This latte was as good as my coveted latte from Ninth Street Espresso — suuuuper smooth, rich, earthy, silky, ahhhhhh. It was perfection. I want more.
Olive oil cake ($3)
This olive oil cake — which my dear friend bought for us after seeing three people ahead of her order it — was also quite tasty. Not too sweet with just a hint of cinnamon, the cake was nutty, moist and light, and seriously, almost every table in the cafe had a slice of this (obviously a good sign). Only tiny beef I had with it was that it was slightly crumblier than I'd like, but that was definitely overlookable (making up words here...) given the overall taste and texture.
Definitely wanna come back here for a hot cup. I'll be expecting something just as amazing (you set the bar too high, La Colombe...).
