The best is when you’re walking along and you stumble upon a cute coffee shop (or book store). In this case, a coffee shop.
My girlfriends and I were walking around Larchmont last month and stopped when we saw this new sign– “Go Get Em Tiger.” None of us had seen it before, so curious, we walked in. Turned out to be a recently-opened coffee shop.
I liked the minimalist decor– white walls, bright red fixtures, wooden stools (surprisingly comfortable). The set-up felt very wine-bar-ish rather than like a typical coffee shop. Several customers drank their coffee at the bar while chatting it up with the barista.
There were lots of different succulents in built-in shelves along the wall. The coffee came in a cute glass jar with a swatch of fabric tied around it (it’s all about the details), and the espresso with a shot of sparkling white tea as a palette cleanser. The coffee was good, the espresso strong.
Chalkboard menu. Definitely on the pricey side, though not surprising for this type of shop (and the location). Not sure if I would go out of my way to come here, considering I’m not a huge coffee drinker (I prefer tea), but definitely a cute place to check out if you are. Fun fact: Its sister store is G&B Coffee.

PS- FYI umm I wrote this post a couple of months ago and forgot to post it, which means the coffee shop is no longer super new. And I am no longer super cool for discovering it early on. Life fail.
