If you’re in New York and looking for a great place for breakfast, Coco & Cru has a great menu, and most importantly–for hard of hearing individuals–it’s a quiet restaurant, with muted music and soft conversations.
To find it, head to the Washington Square Park area of the city, near New York University, and you’ll find a non-descript, modern and chic place boldly announced by a red bench.
From the get-go, I loved its decor–white walls, lots of wood and plants by the windows. Like many of the restaurants today, it has that farmhouse feel without actually being in a farmhouse, and for whatever reason makes me think of the ages gone by even though there’s nothing a bit old about. It’s clean, relaxing, and the food really tickles the sense. Most importantly, I just loved that I didn’t have to strain to hear anyone over the sounds of the restaurant, and didn’t have to scream to be heard.
I ordered the Bacon and Egg roll, because I really do have a weakness for bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches, and if they offer it on the menu, you betcha I will try it and judge the restaurant for their sandwich. And you know what?
It passed all of my requirements with flying colors. The bun was soft and easy to bite through. The eggs were runny, just the way I like it (you can ask for it to be different), and the bacon was crispy but not burnt. Yummy! I get hungry just thinking about it again.
My partner got the Huevos Rancheros, and he gave it two thumbs up! He said that it was just the right amount of ingredients and well balanced.
Lastly, the waitresses and waiters were so nice and kept checking in on us to see if we needed anything. Service at its best.
We were so utterly delighted with this Australian place that we know it’s a place to bring all our friends when they come to visit. So if you’re in the area, do stop by!
