East Village Bed & Coffee
A cross between a bed and breakfast (except there’s no breakfast) and a hostel, East Village Bed & Coffee is the creation of Anne Edris. Since Edris has lived in the neighborhood for nearly 24 years, she provides a wealth of information for out-of-towners on the best local dives and sights. In addition to acting as concierge, she also decorated all of her 10 of rooms with specific themes, such as the flight room, which has hanging toy planes and map-covered walls. Each floor of this loft-style building has a bathroom and kitchen for sharing.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
