We visited CHALAIT in the trendy area of West Village to get our hands on some of the best matcha lattes in the city.
I am 100% dairy free so we ordered our matcha with almond milk.
CHALAIT also offers a variety of DELISH side dishes like tartines featuring unreal toppings like avocado, nutella, and lox.
