[NYC, Morningside Heights] Kitchenette (Brunch)

Kitchenette is a breakfast and brunch spot near Columbia University.



So, I think I have established that my favorite meal is brunch, even though I'm not a huge fan of breakfast and my favorite food is ramen.

Well, during my time at Columbia, especially during exam season, I needed to find a brunch spot that was relatively nearby. I heard about Kitchenette one day and decided to check it out. Oddly enough, it was also listed in my friend's Korean tour book.
I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but can you judge a café by its entryway? 
Kitchenette is super cute. When you enter, there is a cake case and a soda fountain-esque counter. Super cute.

My friend ordered the waffle and a peppermint hot chocolate (since those were recommended in the tour book). I ordered the Kitchenette Special (biscuit with eggs and cheese) and coffee.

Kitchenette is popular for its waffles and hot chocolate (according to the guidebook). I guess I would have to agree. The waffle was moist, but still crisp and the batter was pretty flavorful. According to the server, they are also known for their homemade biscuits, hence my order. The biscuit was very moist and not overly flour-y. The cheese was a little disappointing, in my opinion. I mean I prefer not to eat American cheese singles, but when I do, I would prefer they are melted completely.

Overall, the meal was okay, but not sure I would go back after our brunch since there are so many more delicious restaurants in the area. It is kind of overpriced, even for NYC, since it was nothing that I couldn't make at home and in larger quantities.. 

The atmosphere is decent. They have decorated it with cute kitschy sort of finds.

It is located at 1272 Amsterdam Avenue. The nearest subway stops are 116-Columbia University (1) and 125th (1, A, C).

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
