A stylish homey café in the heart of the East Village neighborhood, run by owner Pui Lee who has several years experience working in other cafes and restaurants. He had an interest in baking and followed his passion to culinary school, he then played with recipes and perfected his technique recently opening this bakery café. Named as Aer which refers to the aroma of coffee and house baking.
Over a couple of visits since they opened, I have had a Matcha Latte, Grilled Cheese Sandwich which was delicious with mushrooms on their house baked sourdough; a Cortado and their delicious chocolatey Chocolate Chunk cookie and the Ginger Molasses cookie.
The menu features a selection of sandwiches, their house-baked bread and baked goodies! There is also a full-on espresso beverage lineup featuring local roaster Moja Coffee along with matcha lattes and other beverages.
