Another coffee shop with great food in Sunset Park, Yafa Cafe is a Yemeni spot where you’ll want to hang out for several hours and attempt to befriend your barista. Service is friendly, and the long space has wifi, plenty of tables, as well as an area up front with books, brick walls, plants, and wicker furniture. Stop by for a coffee and some shakshuka in the morning, or get some work done while you eat a crispy fried chicken sandwich with a brussels sprout slaw.

A falafel sandwich at Taim is the best thing you can get in NYC for less than $10 and also theoretically eat daily without disastrous consequences.
Zooba is an Egyptian restaurant in Nolita, and it’s the only fast-casual restaurant worth caring about.
A laid back Lebanese eatery that gets Stang’s stamp of approval. The service is good, people are friendly, and you can eat your face off for about twenty bucks a person.
