website, @vlaic,

NYC is such a charmer with cafes being cafes, but they also know how to use space, and in a creative way. Food Trucks are a large part of Urban culture and we're glad to see Food Trucks come to Toronto this July (#FoodTruckEats) Good food on the go, makes a huge difference in the lives of native NewYorkers.
Spotted on Bedford Street were many Mexican/Taco food trucks, slinging out not the usual suspects of Chinese food (we see around Robarts), but freshly grilled and served straight up good eats.

Not surprised that NYC, and in particular Williamsburg has a Ice Cream and COFFEE truck!

Serving Intelligenstia Black Cat
Triple Ristretto of course.
Tightly pulled.Trademark NYC.
Machine: Mirage

Verdict: syrupy good. Making coffee mobile is definitely the way to go.

Idea: GOLD!
So I've seen a cupcake truck, taco truck, crepe truck, smoothie truck.... endless combinations.
