The perfect view to people-watch while having a great coffee and treats at Sweet Corner!

There are so many reasons to make a beeline to Greenwich Village when you're visiting NYC, and I just found another one...and it's a winner! It's the adorable little sweet shop on the corner of Charles and Hudson Streets, hence the name "Sweet Corner". Starting out in 2009 as genius cake bakers only to friends and family, founders Rodolfo and Patricia Goncalves decided to open their own shop to serve the public that had begun clamoring for their creations! They wanted a lovely location in the Village with great windows so people could see their "cake designers" working their magic with all the steps along the way, from first sketches to first fork-full!!! Add in a fabulous wrap-around counter where visitors can grab a delicious coffee of one of their gourmet blends and a sweet treat from their menu, and you have a perfect snack-stop on your tour of lower Manhattan. My favorite??.....the Sea-Salt Chocolate Chip Cookie!! I dare you to eat just one! When I make a date with friends to meet me at Sweet Corner, we just refer to it as "Destination DEEE-Lish!!"..... see you there! Sybil Sez! http://www.sweetcorner.com/sweet-corner-bakeshop/

Ovando - Floral Design & Event Production / NYC

 (click to enlarge)

For lucky folks living in Greenwich Village, there’s an amazing florist stationed right on Bleecker Street whose windows are always full of the most beautiful orchids displayed in the most extraordinary glass pieces! The studio’s founder, Sandra de Ovando has spent her entire life celebrating beauty, falling in love with nature, flowers and bold colors at a very young age when she spent countless weekends gardening with her mother. “I was fascinated with the intrinsic beauty of flowers and loved to spend hours mismatching different colors, shapes and blossoms!”, she remembers. From stunning floral installations, custom props & moody lighting, and the full-scale construction of breathtaking displays and environments, Ovando is a dazzling celebration of form, function, and flowers. Two boutiques, one in the West Village and the other on East 65th near Madison Avenue provide all the drama, style, and sophistication one could ask for in flower design and special event décor.
