Pro Tips

I actually found this space in a quest to find a centrally located NYC coffee shop appropriate for meeting a client (needing some privacy). It's actually perfect for that purpose.
A) They have free/fast wifi
B) The upstairs has a lot of 2 tops with enough space between the tables where there is the perfect balance between white noise from the conversation around you and background music and the privacy for yourself and your guest.
C)It's also not very busy at all (only a handful of people are here during lunch hour). They also have really fresh light food, (I just had an awesome zucchini lemon salad) and really good coffee.

Key factors to keep in mind:
A)To sit upstairs you have to order from the waitress upstairs, something I didn't know after I ordered my coffee and food downstairs with every intention to sit upstairs, they let me slide.
B) I found the best spot upstairs, an isolated two top right in front of what appears to be the ONLY outlet on the floor. So either charge up before you get there, bring an extension cord or shoot for this corner spot when you arrive!

  • It is quite busy (read:loud) during lunch hours (until 3:30 or so), but quiets down soon after. The space is nice and we got a few hours of work done without issue. The upstairs space closes at 5pm, and the ground floor stays open until 6pm.
