Cafe Usagi

Nestled in Dumbo, Usagi is a modern Japanese cafe, bookstore, art gallery and project space! "Usagi" is the Japanese word for rabbit, a friendly animal that in many cultures is associated with renewal and spring. 

I finally had a chance to drop in and absolutely fell in love with the aesthetic here! It's beautiful and functional with tons of seating. The space has pops of understated colours everywhere making it so welcoming and inspiring.

I sipped my chai latte at a large comfy table in a sunny spot, and caught up on some personal projects. If I had stayed longer, I would've definitely ordered something off the lunch menu which included udon, soba, sushi, beef bowls, poke and more! 

The architecture is so unique here, with 15 removable track-mounted panels that allows for reconfiguration into an event space. You can also contact them on their website to rent this out for your next event! I absolutely plan to come back here and try their lunch next time I'm working from home!
