Editor's note: Every afternoon we like to post a short Sugar Rush to end your day. Think of it as the dessert to your daily blog reading. Plus, as an added bonus, every day between now and Halloween these Sugar Rushes will all be pumpkin based. It's the only way we could think of covering the enormous number of pumpkin sweets being offered in the city right now. Enjoy!
In the middle of 12th Street, tucked neatly between Avenues A and B is Ciao for Now, a cafe with little media hype but a strong following of loyal customers. One friend swears by the passionfruit lemonade while another proclaims the fudgy brownies among the best in the city. Me? I'm a lover of the pumpkin loaf, perfectly sized for an individual with a sweet tooth in need of satisfaction. Made daily in-house with fresh pumpkin, the tender and moist loaf, gently spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg pairs dandy with a cup of tea. I like to sit inside the café and lazy away the afternoon with a selection of magazines. But should the weather permit, make sure to claim a seat on one of the two rickety green rocking benches and couple your snack with a bit of people watching.
