Wonderful Brunch at The Toucan & the Lion

"I am perfect and I love you."

Last Saturday, I had brunch at The Toucan & the Lion. The food was adequate, the setting was white and more sterile than a UWS plastic surgery office, but the coffee was the star of the entire show. Wonderful chocolate notes and a slight acidity that plays with the tongue. I was so amazed by their coffee, I asked for five refills, with cream. I will walk all day on the treadmill, but it was a well-worth luxurious treat. My friends looked in amusement, while I talked to them with hands so jittery that I wasn't able to properly sign my receipt. However, I believe the caffeine fix just made the entire coffee experience brunch more enjoyable.
