A good cup of joe and a decent BEC is all you ask of an unassuming place whose letters stand for coffee and breakfast. What you get: an escapee from Masa and, before that, Tavern on the Green brewing your excellent pour-over. And chef-owner Ali Sahin, who did fine-dining time uptown at health-obsessed Rouge Tomate, is now repenting for those butterless, salt-free days by cooking what might be the East Village’s best breakfast sandwiches. You want the juicy housemade chorizo patty with scrambled eggs on a squishy brioche roll. Unless, that is, you’re craving the juicy housemade merguez sausage with Cheddar and egg on a supersize croissant. For carbophobes, there are big bowls filled with all sorts of delicious combinations like heirloom beans and pork belly or pulled chicken and pastured eggs. There’s no shortage of coffee bars that serve food in New York. C&B is the one you wish you had on your block.
