Tracey Stewart—wife of The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart—owns this toddler-friendly Tribeca café. The main room is filled with vintage furnishings, terrarium lamps and National Geographic–decoupage–topped tables. An attached space offers an interactive "funky" forest for children and a craft room for biweekly art classes. While the little ones are learning, parents can linger over Counter Culture coffee, quiches, bagels, and sweet treats like Colson Patisserie croissants and Danny Macaroons.
