Naidre's Cafe, Bakery, and Espresso Bar, at 384 Seventh Avenue (between 11th and 12th), is a cute little cafe that serves up some of the tastiest, healthiest food in the neighborhood. Breakfast, soups, salads, and sandwiches dominate the menu, but it's the baked goods that really stand out (literally; they're hard to miss in the display case).
Everything is baked on-premises except for the hard-to-master baked goods like croissants (which are provided by Ceci Cela) and bagels (which come from La Bagel Delight). Coffee is provided by Counter Culture, which has developed quite a following.
There's a large variety of traditional baked goods like cakes, cookies, and muffins, but the selection of vegan items really sets it apart from the pack. Vegan carrot cake, energy bars, and cookies are specialties, and are so good that if nobody told you were vegan you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
