Late last year, the West Village scored itself a cute new neighborhood café on the intersection of Jane and Hudson Streets: Hudson Café! It’s on the same block as Mole, the lively Mexican eatery helmed by restaurateur Nick Cervera and his wife, Chef Lupe Elizalde.
The couple built the place from scratch, infusing their personal touch into the cozy interior — they remodeled the ceiling with a herringbone pattern of reclaimed wood beams, installed industrial-chic lighting in the form of scones and lined the white tile walls with photographs of Cervera’s travels around the world.
Hudson Café is branding itself as more than just a local coffee house. Its menu extends beyond good coffee and pastries into salads, soups, sandwiches and dinner delights such as the lamb shank and pork loin.
It’s the place to be if you want to read the morning paper while you sip coffee and snack on a chocolate croissant, or catch up with that friend you haven’t seen in weeks over the Green Delight smoothie — a refreshing concoction of spinach, pineapple, kale, agave, banana and orange juice — and some delicious in-house Panini.
