    I really like the environment. it’s chill and artsy in a very simple, comforting way. I think it’s the space, the art hanging up and of course the treats! green tea matcha waffle is 😍 ;teas = amazing

    My favorite cafe in Manhattan. Get the Hodduk, matcha jasmine latte, or mango shaved ice. A great space for meeting w/ friends.

    Toby's estate & sight class coffee can be found - heaven for coffee lovers in Ktown. I was initially attracted to the place by its art, but oh boy the soy latte is one of the best! Say hi to Annabelle

    The milk and honey shaved snow ice was incredible! The "snow" is creamier than normal shaved ice and the combination of tapioca pearls with honey was amazing! The jasmine milk tea was great too.

    The waffles here are amazing! There's a lot of seats so you won't be waiting in line for a long time. Very lively place and service is good. Mochi waffle was $11 and the matcha waffle was $10.

    Delicious and highly filling Korean desserts. The O.G. was delicious. Next time I come back, I promised myself to try the Elixir and a ho-dduk. Come in a big group so that you can try all!

    The desserts here are stellar. Recommended: cookie monster shaved ice. It's so, so good. My friend also loved the mango madness shaved ice.

    Desserts with an Asian twist along with friendly service & tons of space. The rose latte, shaved ice or butterfly lemonade probably brought you here,now that you're here there's so much more to sample

    Delicious shaved snow that comes in three flavors (black sesame, green tea and sweet milk) and a diverse range of toppings. You can either create your own and order one of their signature combos.

    Best warm treats: Hodduck and Hong Kong French Toast. Best cold treats: O.G. and Mango Madness shaved snow.

    Love what they have done with this place! With the added long tables and couches, one of the largest (and cleanest) cafe spots in the city. Bring your laptop, order a coffee and a hodduk, and chill!

    Spacious and fast service. Desserts are perfect for sharing especially after dinner. Coffee and tea are top notch. Try their matcha ice cream waffle

    Asian dessert heaven! The ice shavings look amazing although quite pricey! Get the 2 scoop matcha ice cream for 5$ for a cheaper option ;)

    Best patbingsoo I've ever had! Shaved ice is so soft and creamy. Hodduk (Korean beignet/mochi fusion) with ice cream also a must try.

    The toasted black sesame shaved snow ice is not like the typical 팥빙수 (paht bing soo, aka Korean shaved ice) but is like the Taiwanese snow dessert. The texture is more akin to an airier sherbert.

    Mini mochi - you get to choose 4 from vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, mango, coffee, black sesame and green tea. (Highly recommend the last 4)

    The Ho-Dduk is really yummy! Cinnamon doughnut with vanilla ice cream! The Shaved snow here is the best that I've had in New York. But not quite as light and fluffy as other places I've had it.

    Huge space, open late (sometimes overrun by teens...), with solid desserts, Korean and others (I loved the basque cheesecake!). Seating is at communal tables and it can get loud.

    Ho-dduk is excellent! Korean pancake stuffed with brown sugar and walnut filling. Warm, gooey, soft, crunchy and not too sweet. It's like a Korean style sticky bun. Very comforting!

    Beautiful, spacious cafe with great Korean doughnuts (ho-dduk) best topped with ice cream.

    The Basque burnt cheesecake is creamy, balanced by the subtle burnt top, not overwhelmingly rich or dense. Also cool how it comes in mini cakes

    The hot blackcurrant tea is amazing and there are plenty of plug outlets! Only thing it's missing is wifi, but otherwise, this is the perfect place to hang and have a coffee.

    This type of ho-dduk has been really popular in Seoul. Not the typical ho-dduk griddle fried from a street cart but what you find in a nice cafe in Apgujeong or Garosu-gil... light, airy, and refined.

    A great space for two or a big group (super comfy sofas)! Must try the hodduk - it's fried unlike the traditional hodduk but still has the brown sugar nutty yumminess.

    Huge coffee cup definitely worth the price and desserts are very unique even though its jus another invention of older ones or something simple like an oreo cookie

    Hodduk and churro waffle are very similar. Matcha latte is great!

    hodduk tastes like a Cinnabon. at night, you're seated and they cut it for you. in the day, you can order them whole and seat yourself. $5.99.

    Wonderful, quaint and gigantic space to catch some calm in midtown. Outlets aplenty, but no wifi. Get the ho-dduk and catch up with a friend here!

    I've had the mocha, americano, and affogato, all of which were excellent. Try the ho dduk if you need something sweet. Can get crowded on the weekends.

    Overpriced dessert but people come here more for the vibe to lounge, connect, talk than just eat & leave. Love their altruistic ideals & philanthropic intentions, so I don’t mind paying the extra $$$

    Easily the most spacious coffee shop in NYC. The coffee and food are both great, but I come for the snow!

    Hodduk is a must order but DO NOT bite into it until it's been sufficiently cooled. The honey will squirt out and you will get burned.

    The jasmine milk tea is awesome— it’s refreshing and tastes, dare I say, healthy? The best milk tea I’ve had in a while.

    Oat milk matcha latte. Matcha Beignet w/matcha ice cream. 8 fluffy beignets - enough for 2. Hits the sweet tooth without being too sweet.

    caveat emptor, there's an undercurrent of evangelical christianity here, confirmed by my colleague who went to christian schools as a kid. same vibe, she says. the coffee is good, as are the ho-dduk.
