In a post-COVID landscape, cafés and eateries wear multiple hats as a place to hang, home-goods store, bakery, or even an ice cream shop.

Wild Culture


Post-pandemic eateries have had to truly excel at something to survive, and this Hastings-on-Hudson coffee shop/restaurant does just that, with some of the very best waffles in the entire state. Proffering a long fermentation process that brings out both flavor and nutrients, Wild Culture’s waffles are stuffed with delicious fillings to boot and go swimmingly with the shop’s top-tier cold brew.

Mount Kisco

Need freshly milled flour or some chocolate chips for that next baking project? How about stylish dish towels or just some ice cream? You can get all this and more at this Mount Kisco transplant (courtesy of Brooklyn), which boasts outstanding house-roasted coffee, ample outdoor seating, and a range of baking and home goods.

Jay Street Cafe


Sometimes you just really need a big, beautiful space to while away the day (or work on that project). If ambience is priority one, drop by this homey café tucked away on Katonah Avenue and enjoy a bright, expansive white space; fun, fluorescent accents; and a solid lineup of sandwiches, salads, and, most importantly, strong coffee.
