Sweet Moment, a super cute and on trend dessert café, is set just south of Little Italy in Downtown Manhattan on Mott St. This was my first visit to Sweet Moment after discovering the cafe on Instagram just two months prior. I could not stop looking at (and liking, of course) their colorful ‘creamarts’ that are almost too adorable to sip.
We stopped in on a Sunday just before noon. We luckily beat the crowds by just under a half hour. The earlier you come by during the weekend, the better for even more photo opportunities. Their secret photo spot is the front grey window seat that has the best lighting opportunity, which is where most of the Instagram magic happens!
In addition to their latte art using La Colombe coffee, Sweet Moment is well known for their mountain high Korean Bingsoos (Shaved Ice) with many different flavors, super cute Bottle Cakes, waffles with a variety of toppings, in-house made Pastries and Cookies made by our own pâtissier. Their baristas are some of the best in the city. It takes at least ten minutes to create your own latte art masterpiece, so please be patient!
They created their own designs for two of the cups, and for the hot pink one, I requested Totoro, most favorite anime character.
Waffles include a mix of sweet and savory such as their Avocado Combo, Mixed Fruits, and Nutella Banana. Bingsoo creations include Black Sesame Redbean, Matcha & Cheesecake, and Mango & Cheesecake (pictured). Watermelon is available in season.
Creamart specialty drinks include Red Velvet, Chocolate, Matcha, or Taro. Freshly squeezed juice is also available.
Sweet Moment NYC is open seven days a week 9am-10pm. Last call is thirty minutes prior to close.
