Welcome to CAFÉ ANNE!

CAFÉ ANNE is a weekly newsletter, published every Monday, created and written by Anne Kadet whose freelance work can most often be found in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune and Crain’s NY Business.


With a focus on New York City, CAFÉ ANNE takes a fresh look at the everyday, delights in the absurd, and often features profiles of unusual folks who truly do things their way.

Recent features included a look at the Naked Cowboy’s Morning Routine, a profile of New Jersey superhero Captain Bayonne and a look at the new NYC umbrella sharing service Rentbrella.
