The Smile, which started dispensing coffee and coolness four years ago in NoHo, colonized Tribeca last summer with a little café called The Smile Newsstand. Chowhounds go for its house-made financiers, muffins, and other baked treats, as well as coffee brewed with beans from the upstate roaster Plowshares. Attention, shoppers: The café’s inside Shinola, a Detroit transplant that proudly sells bicycles, watches, and other examples of good old American craftsmanship.
