Although Ethiopian sanctuary Café Desta moved into the building where Stone Avenue, Sixth Avenue and 18th Street join, it wasn't until 5 Points moved in that that area morphed from kind of seedy into chic and tendy. Heck, even the New York Times had to give this little breakfast and lunch spot a serious shout out. That's because everything from the sparkling rose lemonade to the pistachio cardamom shortbread to the herby, refined breakfast toast to the Korean-inspired Seoul Sister sandwich is completely and utterly perfect. Not only is the food expertly executed, but the relaxed, yet hip digs are on point too. If this place isn't one of your favorites already, it will be now.
