Peter Graham and Sophie Esteban bring their New York style (both are NYC expats who named their store after their former East Coast address) to Silver Lake with a bungalow storefront selling home goods, gourmet kitchen items and cafe eats from pastries to sandwiches. Peruse items like Laguiole and Oriole knives to Pendleton and Stanely mugs or laze on the outdoor patio with a cup of joe. Unsurprisingly, the brew on offer is NY's Gimme! coffee, which is brewed to perfection while you browse around. It's a lovely spot for a coffee date, just don't be surprised if you leave having purchased more than just a drink.

This is one of my favorite places to journal and enjoy a great cup of coffee and the best scone ever (ginger peach)! I live in New York now and while this city has a lot to offer, I miss this little space.
The store may be tightly-packed, but is that not then all the more suggestive of Manhattan? The retail items are delightful (always my first stop for gifts for my father, in particular) and the cappuccino rich and creamy.
This is such a fun little shop—I always stop in when I'm looking for a gift (and then end up leaving with something for myself). The coffee is great and the patio is the perfect spot to catch up with a friend, do a little reading before or after yoga at the Raven, and basically pretend like your whole life could be this leisurely and well-curated.
