If you're craving something in particular, call ahead from their Treatmo Mobile store to reserve the item and pay in advance. They even have all plant-based cupcakes and cookies.
Next, get back onto 1st Avenue and continue south to 10th Street and turn left. Towards the center of the block you'll find the second Treatmo Hotspot Quintessence.

Second STOP: Lorimer Station, Brooklyn
Juiced and ready, head back to the L and take it to east towards Canarsie. Get off at Lorimer Station in Greenpoint. If you've ever been to Paris and love inventive takes on the traditional crêpes, now's your chance to indulge in innovative version of the food fave.
Take a short walk west on Metropolitan Ave and turn left on Havemeyer Street. Three blocks away on the left side of the street, you'll be in crêpe heaven at Little Choc Apothecary.
