Via Quadronno

I met a friend on the Upper East Side, which at times can be, yes, pricey. This gem of a cafe, however, is not!

It is narrow, though. Don't come in with a backpack or a large dog! We tucked ourselves into a tight corner and started with steaming lattes ($4.50). These were piping hot and expertly prepared, from the strong, powerful flavor to the pretty foam touches.

We each got an apricot-filled croissant($3.50)...mamma mia. They do NOT skimp on the lush, bright filling, and I love them for it.

My friend ordered the ham and cheese pressed sandwich ($5)--look at the oozy, cheesy goodness! I should have gotten this.

I ordered the prosciutto and cheese (also $5), and it was okay, but I so would get the ham next time. The prosciutto, obviously, was much drier than the ham, and I think I would have preferred the velvety texture of my friend's sandwich.

While I don't normally spend $4.50 for a latte, this splurge was worth it, and the rest of the meal was quite affordable/worth it to me. If you're in this area, definitely pop in. I'll have to come back to sample the eye-catching desserts.
