    Healthy and delicious. Did not miss any 'boozy' brunch when I was here! I added a scrambled egg to my avo toast and sipped some matcha latte! The wait was 40 minutes because the place is always busy!

    Aussie Brunch spot with great coffee. Lemon & cucumber water is a nice touch. Airy interior is a retreat from the busy Mott st but come early as it can get bit sceney & not as chill. Good vibe though.

    Yet another very good Nolita Aussie coffee shop. No wifi, but great vibe to work in with some outdoor seating too. Iced latte is solid. Watermelon with mint slice for just 50 cents.

    Eveyone will say get avocado toast but skip it - get Zoe plate or anything else! The a. toast is more instagram yummy than tummy yummy CUZ the bread to avocado ratio is imbalanced - too much bread!

    The avocado smashed on a fat slab of multigrain bread is fantastic. The granola comes with chia seeds and berries. Get the flat white, just enough milk (less than late). I'm in love.

    This place was💯💯💯!!! So great. Love the ambiance, great servers, amazing coffee, great food. Try a flat white, the avo toast, and the granola bowl (possibly the best I've ever had).

    Great ambiance. Healthy menu. Avocado toast was great. Good coffee selection. 99% young women in the place. Get the Acai bowl!

    This new kid in town was opened by some handsome Aussies. Spacious, lot of light, Instagram-worthy. Get your two hands on some mason jars, paper straws, and good espresso.

    Superb breakfast and brunch menu with fresh & yummy taste. Try ham cheese croissants or mixed fruit with fresh yogurt. You will be happy at beginning of the day.

    Cute spot, great coffee, and food. We got the little Italy which was good but very small and a BLT type sandwich (forgot the name) which was awesome! Will be back.

    Delicious food, drinks and coffee but can't seem to find a time to come here that isn't overcrowded. Worthwhile, if you don't mind the throngs of people.

    Two Hands Cafe is the perfect spot to get your hands on a beautiful smoothie bowl. It's the ultimate combination of chic and hipster. Their classic acai bowl is the perfect excuse to snap a great pic. Read more

    I absolutely love this Aussie cafe on Mott and Broome. Cute staff and great flat whites, avo on toast as well as acai bowls. Busy on the weekends!!

    Loved the cortado! Great atmosphere but I didn't have the patience to wait to be seated for Sunday brunch, although it looks like it's well worth it!

    Awesome Aussie service and the best Tim Tam Slam in the form of their Outback Cap! But don't miss their amazing tea selection from Bellocq, either

    Ricotta toast was really good! And ordered a flat white, which was good as well. Good spot to go alone or with a friend...not suited for large groups

    With real estate prices so high, most coffee shops don't even have space to sit. Here's a great, old school bookstore with a tiny cafe and ample seating. Great to meet up or do a little work.

    Avocado toast with a poached egg plus a flat white makes a perfect Australian breakfast. No wifi, but perfect vibe for working.

    Trendy, adorable restaurant in soho serving up a delicious brunch. The service could've definitely been better as we had to flag down a waitress to even bring us water after sitting there for ten min.

    Such a nice space, the coffee is very good and the brunch is promising. In the area you won't find any other place serving coffee of the same quality.

    Avo toast is well done. Granola is hearty with whole almonds and chia seeds. Nice space, quality coffee drinks, healthy and delicious food choices.

    Super chill new coffee spot in Little Italy run by two Aussie mates, they did well bringing their relaxed Australian coffee vibe to NYC. Great coffee too.

    Among the growing number of Aussie/Kiwi coffee shops in NYC, Two Hands stands out for their expanded menu and plentiful seating. Order a Flat White for the full experience.

    Neatly designed Aussie inspired cafe in Nolita. Avocado toast is recommended, espresso is strong, although service is quite slow, 5 guys standing behind the counter not doing much lol!

    Now that Oro is gone, Two Hands is my go-to for early morning breakfast. Get the eggs and spinach. I also really am a fan of their espressos...feels so smooth.

    Grabbed cappuccino to go. Tastes too sour. It's very crowded Sunday afternoon for Brunch. Avocado toasts look delicious, plates/glasses are so fancy! Should be good for young girl's hang...

    I loved the acai bowl and the juice! You can make your own. The chai latte was very weak and that was a little disappointing.

    Order the Avo Toast with a Poached Egg and squeeze a little lemon on it. SO good. Don't forget a Flat White.

    I wanted to enjoy a coffee after work but it closes at 5 PM (written 6PM on Foursquare) :( but I will definitely go there soon. It seems to be a great place with great coffee !

    The wait can be long, but the food is delicious and super healthy. Get a side of pesto to enhance any dish!

    We loved the acai breakfast bowls at Two Hands, which were heaping with gluten free goodness and fresh fruit. Read more

    The Outback Cappuccino is the perfect sweet tooth combo. It's common Aussie practice, albeit difficult, to use your Tim Tam as a straw. Bite off the corners and give the "Tim Tam Slam" a try!
