Two Hands is a must if you enjoy quality coffee, charming interiors, oh, and Aussies. This Australian cafe, owned by two Sydney natives, is a hidden gem. I mean that quite literally. Its exterior doesn't stand out on Mott Street, but it certainly shines from the inside.
This place just exudes "coolness." It's laced with string lights, walled in by exposed white bricks, and decorated with contemporary art (totally Instagram worthy).
I had an almond milk latte and the avocado toast. Both were delicious and refreshingly simple. Their coffee is from Café Integral, a Nicaraguan brand that roasts its coffee beans in NYC, and is served in darling drinkware. The food is both hearty and healthy, a wonderful combination. The açaí bowl looked fantastic. I'll most likely be trying that next time.
Two Hands breeds more of a social environment, so I wouldn't recommend it as a place to get work done. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, but the many, vibrant conversations bring so much life into this place.
Their motto is true. Two Hands offers "good food by good dudes."
