Dessert for breakfast

Affogato, Identity Coffees

I’ve never understood affogatos for dessert. The last thing I need at night is caffeine. But affogato for breakfast is genius—energy and indulgence to get the day started. Identity Coffees recently introduced a nondairy version ($6) of the Italian classic for its first anniversary: espresso tempered with creamy cashew-milk gelato from Conscious Creamery to soothe your troubled soul. It comes in a shallow bowl instead of the usual glass, making it even more breakfast-y. 1430 28th Street,
