Located in NoHo, Café Lyria is a true gem. The new coffee spot with Greek vibes and aesthetic interiors was launched earlier this year by two creative souls, Theo and Yannis Mastoros. Yannis, by the way, used to be a part of the fashion and lifestyle brand Aimé Leon Dore, which is also known for its trendy coffee shop. However, both brothers decided to start their own business — Lyria. And they succeeded! The cafe quickly gained attention and popularity. Inviting atmosphere, high-quality service, incredible selection of coffee, tea, other beverages, and snacks — you really won’t want to leave this place.
