Known as the Queen City of the Sound, New Rochelle boasts a stunning waterfront and much more.
Begin your day at Cafetero Coffee Company on Centre Avenue, where you can enjoy lattes on the delightful outdoor patio or in the beautiful indoor space. Owner John Reverol offers an array of delicious treats to complement the creative hot and cold brews crafted by barista Eddie Brito, featuring unexpected ingredients such as passion fruit.
Next, make your way to Enchanted Flowers on Huguenot Street, where you can find something to brighten your home or impress your sweetheart. From sweet treats to candles, owner Frank Egan excels at creating gorgeous floral arrangements.
For a fulfilling lunch, head to A.J.'s Burgers on North Avenue, a beloved city staple. Owner and executive chef Alan Cohen goes beyond burgers at this family-friendly spot, incorporating shrimp bisque to pour over raviolis from the renowned Borgatti's on Arthur Avenue. Don't miss out on their legendary garlic fries and, of course, the delicious burgers.
After your meal, quench your thirst at 18th Ward Brewing, located on Division Street, which has been providing fun and entertainment for nearly a year. Enjoy live music on weekends, trivia nights and a wide selection of craft beers, all thoughtfully curated by owner Jordan Beldner.
