I am always on the hunt for the latest food trends – the good, the bad, and the ugly. They range from trying new ice cream places, to health food spots, to different cultural delicacies.
Coffee in a Cone, Bluestone Lane
Called the world’s most Instagrammable coffee, Bluestone Lane debuted their new #CoffeeInACone at Beach on Bowery last month! It is Bluestone Lane’s premium Maverick espresso coffee served in a waffle cone that has a thick layer of various types of cacao. The cone is leak proof for about 10 minutes, so make sure you drink it before it leaks!
Where: Beach on Bowery
When: December 14 – December 17, 10 AM – 6 PM
Since the PopUp is over, they began to serve #CoffeeInACone at 30 Carmine Street from 10 AM – 4 PM until supplies last.

Rainbow Iced Latte, the Good Sort
I feel like I have heard the words ‘unicorn’ and ‘rainbow’ at least once a month in a different trendy food. This Australian-inspired café is located on a small side street in Chinatown. Taking a twist on a traditional latte, the rainbow iced latte has beetroot, turmeric, blue algae, ginger, black pepper, vanilla bean, agave, cayenne pepper, and a blend of almond, coconut & oats milk. It is pretty pricey ($8) for a latte, but it was pretty filling where you can skip breakfast or lunch, and makes a great Instagram picture!

Supermoon Bakehouse not only has a strong Instagram presence, but a wild variety of croissants, donuts, and cruffins. From chocolate dipped passion fruit, to pina colada, to banana split, and even an NYC flavor, you can’t go wrong with any option.
I chose the winter Ferrero rocher bi-color croissant ($5.50), which was filled with a toasted hazelnut praline and dark chocolate ganache, dipped I meringue then torched, topped with cacao powder and roasted hazelnuts; and the almond cranberry twice baked croissant ($8) which had almond syrup, almond cream, fresh cranberry jelly, vanilla crème patisserie, with sugared almond clusters and almond cream on top.
Highly recommend going early or checking their Instagram to see if they sold out (they usually write if they are sold out in their Instagram bio.). P.S., YES Supermoon is co-owned by one of the founders of Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in San Francisco, famously known for their “I Got Baked in San Francisco” sign and variety of pastries.
