The Latte Art At This NYC Coffeehouse Is So Cute We’re Gonna Die

If you thought the leaf your local barista chucks on top of your morning brew was impressive, baby, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

From selfies to Ryan Gosling’s sexy face, decorative coffee toppers on are certainly having a moment, and downtown New York coffeehouse, Sweet Moment, is making a name for itself by the way of its super cute latte art.

Yep, the cute and quirky creations you never knew you needed till now can be found at Sweet Moment, New York City’s latest hotspot for Instagrammable beverages.

Cute little critters, like pigs, bears and puppies smile up cheekily from mugs of matcha, chocolate and red velvet “creamarts”, their artfully decorated cold brews. The cartoon creations are flawlessly sketched with cream and chocolate syrup and come in a rainbow of colourful flavours.

They also have a range of desserts for you to feast on, like the shave-ice bingsoo, which is either served in a cup, or mountain high in a scooped out watermelon filled with granny smith apple syrup, mochi, and rainbow jelly, topped with shaved ice and scooped out melon, ice cream and meringue. Come at us, watermelon.
