Cafe GrumpyCoffee Shop • New York, United States
The banana bread is wonderful.
They don't take credit cards, which is absurd. Cafe Grumpy is 50 feet south in the Lexington Passage (street entrance also on Lex), takes credit cards and tastes just as good, if not better.
TXL cuts out all air travel BS. When arriving drive to your exact gate via your car/taxi. Zero amenities, but also no unnecessary navigation needed. Who really needs an airport Hermes shop anyway?
Door guy is awful. Don't waste your time. Walk two blocks to Redwood Bar. They have wonderful drinks and warm barkeeps unlike this absolutely pretentious shitshow.
Drink yourself silly at Mac's then walk across the street and grab a Napoli and slather it in their homemade dressing.
Part of the reason it takes 4 hours to go a little over 100 miles.
Sicilian slice is pretty great.
Congrats on entering the worst terminal at JFK. This is what cattle must feel like.
Don't be scared of walking up the flight of stairs. They send out their tools to be sanitized like hospitals + have Butter London polish!
Play the original Budweiser Tapper game. None of that watered down Root Beer nonsense.
Forget bodega kitties, how about a bakery kitty? Be careful - he can occasionally get a bit aggressive, but is also a total sweetheart. Cannolis are good too 😻.
Their chorizo is Spanish chorizo, not Mexican chorizo. Big, disappointing difference.
Juicy, well-seasoned roasted chicken with great sides. If they have it as a special, indulge in the dijon potato salad. Perfect lunch spot.
I like it here, but the fried chicken is WAY too salty (never a complaint of mine). Head over to Bob White instead.
Still thinking about my tuna sandwich I had at lunch a week ago. So yummy!
A+ staff. Don't get a cavity, but if you do see if Dr. Goldberg can laser it out.
Stay away from the lobster ravioli. It comes in a chunky tomato sauce, which is sacrilege.
