Inspired by a 50’s diner, its owner Andre Saraiva is well-known in the nightlife circles, so this is where you want to be to spot the fashion crowd and celebrities sipping coffee from Counter Culture, and ordering from an equally trendy menu with Acai bowls, Avocado toast and Dragon Bowls making the cut. 116 Forsyth Street, New York, NY 10003

#2: Maman

Located in a 1,300 sq ft former machinery shop, Maman serves up French and American-inspired comfort food. It’s the many design details here that make Maman so charming. The exposed brick walls, pockmarked floor, tin ceilings, and second-hand furniture provide in lived in feel that you may not want to leave behind. 239 Centre Street, New York 

#3: Jack’s Wife Freda

Dinner starts in an hour. ?wink wink.

It’s hard to get a table here, but that’s because it’s just SO good. For a taste of classic American fare with a slight Middle Eastern bent visit on weekday afternoons where you’re more likely to have better luck securing a spot. 50 Carmine Street, New York 

#4: Holborn Grind

Holborn Grind is part of espresso bar chain, Grind, and it’s one of its coolest at that. Located in The Hoxton hotel, it’s an espresso and cocktail bar with brass shelves suspended from the ceiling making up the centrepiece of its décor. 199 High Holborn, Holborn, London

#5: Squirrel

Designed to look like a tree house, Squirrel is taking healthy-eating a whole step further by infusing fun. Salads are served in large acorn-shaped bowls and you help yourself to a free flow of refreshments from drinking stations that resemble wells. 11 Harrington Road, South Kensington, London

#6: April’s Cafe at Boutique 1

The perfect place for an afternoon of al fresco dining. @aprilssloanest #B1London

You’ll find the finest in food and fashion at multi-label store Boutique 1, which carries brands such as Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, and Missoni. Not to be missed from the menu, polenta bread with maple butter, strained yogurt with London honey and the caramelised tomato tart. 127/128 Sloane Street, London

#7: Bar Luce

Bar Luce, located in the Fondazione Prada, comes straight out of director Wes Anderson’s fantastical mind. Just like his whimsical films -The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel – Bar Luce gets a dreamy vintage effect with colour-blocked Formica tables, pinball machines, a jukebox and patterned wallpaper. Largo Isarco 2, Milan 

#8: Potafiori

Pota pota pota ❤️?#potafiori #potafiorimilano #flowersandfood #salasco17

Part café, part bar, part florist, this sleek modern space by jazz singer and florist Rosalba Piccini serves up traditional Italian dishes, and of course, cappuccino. Via Salasco,17, Milan

#8: Pave

Start your day right with breakfast at Pave, the café with a special focus on what’s been said to be the most important meal of the day. Among the highlights, a croissant stuffed with a rare apricot marmalade best enjoyed in Pave’s familial-like atmosphere. Via Felice Casati, 27, Milan 

#9: Ob La Di 

Here until 6pm doing this Photo by @estellelbn

A cosy nook in the trendy Marais district with a very Instagrammable floor. It’s where all the cool kids go for good coffee, conversation and to people watch. 54 Rue de Saintonge, Paris

Our @cafekitsune might be your best spot for some refreshments between two runways, isn't it ? ?? #PFW #PFW16

There’s nothing that says Paris more than sipping coffee and people watching along aterrasse, better yet, one right by Café Kitsune by the French music and fashion label Maison Kitsune. The Palais Royal gardens and the Louvre are only a short walk away after you savour its gluten-free baked goods, sorbets and coffee. 51, Galerie Montpensier, Paris
