Fat Cat Kitchen is a friendly, casual shop on E 14th Street between 2nd and 3rd Aves. We offer a selection of breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads, sides, baked goods, great coffee and an assortment of whole-leaf loose teas. Nearly everything is made from scratch by our chef and baker, using several local ingredients, as we are right down the street from the Union Square Greenmarket.

There is a legit food desert on 14th St. between 2nd and 3rd. So many establishments unworthy of a Manhattan location strung along in a row...Fat Cat Kitchen, however, is the one oasis on that block that serves perfectly seasoned, professionally executed, super-fresh food in a small, independently-owned storefront that you feel good about supporting. I could eat one of their sandwiches for lunch or breakfast every. Single. Day. Same with baked goods, with maybe more dire consequences, but it would be worth it. The quality of food belongs in a West Village brunch spot with an hour-long wait out the door, this is such a gem of an addition to the neighborhood.
I came here because of the rave reviews for the chocolate chip cookie. Gotta be entirely honest - it was quite underwhelming (at $3.50 per cookie) and hard to finish because it there was so much salt all over. I think it would be better if there were a hint of salt rather having it overpower the cookie itself. The cookie tasted slightly stale and didn't have too many chocolate chips. Maybe it was just an off day.
If there's 2 things I love to eat, it's avocado toast and chocolate chip cookies.  Usually not together, but how is it possible that Fat Cat Kitchen has the best of both my favs!? OMG, heaven. The avocado toast was simply delicious .  So many places put avocado and a few other things on toast and they're done.  This place is definitely run by a chef, because theirs is packed with flavor and was topped with brown butter ricotta.  I'd never heard of that before, but OMG, really unique and just delicious. My friend had the FCK, which is an egg sandwich. I didn't try it, so I can't comment,   but she said it was amazing.  Maybe I'll try that next time, but I'm not sure I can drag myself away from that avocado toast. And now, this is saying a lot, but here goes: THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE IS LITERALLY THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD IN NYC.  PERIOD.  Tons of good chocolate and a sprinkling of sea salt.  It had a deliciously rich, toffee-like flavor.  Get one.  Or 2. Also worth mentioning, this is a super cozy place and the service was really friendly. You should probably just go now.
