One of the benefits of going freelance, and having a light, easy-to-carry laptop, is the ability to turn almost any place you want into an office (especially if you use your phone as a hotspot). One of my favorite places in the city is a little chocolate shop on Broome Street in Soho, MarieBelle. Victorian in concept and decor, MarieBelle makes some of the most delicious chocolate I have ever tasted. Their packaging is elegant and beautiful, and with only two locations in the world (NYC and Kyoto), MarieBelle is truly unique.
They also have a large and well curated selection of loose teas, which come in gorgeous reusable tins.
The best part of going to MarieBelle is the hidden little tea salon in the back of the store. Stepping through the entrance is like stepping back in time into a petite tea salon in Paris in the early 1900’s.
I spent the better part of my afternoon here, working and daydreaming about my next trip abroad.
Stay warm people.
