Named after one of Heath Ledger’s first films, Two Hands Café brings the owners’ beachy Australian roots to the border of Little Italy and Chinatown. Find your way through the swanning cliques of locavore millennials to the bright and airy space (which doubles as a gallery) where friendly and attractive Australians take your order. Skip the sandwiches which are good, but basic and opt instead for the acai bowl or corn fritters. The blueberry-and-banana-based acai bowl comes with neat columns of granola, berries, hemp, chia, coconut, and cacao nibs, while the fritters are loaded with creamy avocado and finished with a dollop of sour cream and strings of pickled beets. The gluten-free banana bread with ricotta, honey, and coconut and the seasonally inspired plates and salads are also hits. Or go for the crowd favorite avocado toast with perfect amounts of lemon, olive oil, sea salt, and chile flakes. Complete it with a fried egg and an Instagram.
