    Serving up single origin coffee roasted by SF's sight glass. Some light & tasty food options too. Airy Scandinavian-esque interior with selection of lifestyle goods for sale.

    Feels like an SF sightglass coffee outpost planted in the West Village. Airy and woody. Tasty cappuccino, and a solid chai latte too.

    Coffee and food is amazing! Service is arrogant and nonchalantly rude :/ Worth enduring the moping waiters however as best coffee shop In West village :)

    Consistently lovely service, available seats, strong wifi, homey atmosphere, fantastic music taste, and great selection of coffee and food. Kitchen closes at 4pm. Ideal study spot.

    The people behind The Elk have transformed the 2nd Wave Mojo Coffee into a bright, airy Sightglass shop with pretty unfinished wood and a good amount of seating. Wifi and plugs. (9/14)

    Very cute shop (including a hidden pulley where the food comes up!) avocado toast was good- had pumpkin seeds in it! Espresso was fine. Service was cold.

    You can't go wrong with any of the food here - I've had the avocado toast w/ a fried egg, market bowl, spicy chicken sandwich, soft scrambled eggs, and oatmeal. All were delicious and filling!

    What this West Village nook lacks in size it makes up for in thoughtful details: blond-wood accents, strong coffee and really good food (avocado bánh mì, anyone?). Read more

    Great Latte, they carry beans from Sightglass in SF which was a surprise. Nice place to work out if if you can grab one of the limited seats.

    One of my favorite coffee shops in the West Village. Solid espresso drinks and 6 laptop bar seats if you need to get some work done.

    Sight glass coffee and Wifi, you're set! Only 6 seats where laptops are allowed, but if you're nice they'll let you use it at a table while you wait.

    The place is light and airy, the people are friendly, and the lattes are tasty. Great place to do some work or just relax at a table.

    Avo toast here is on par with cáfe gitane - one of the best. Plus almond lattes 👌 the soft scramble = a reason to pay $9 for 2 eggs

    Good coffee, people-watching, river vibes and a simple menu that is just right for a comforting breakfast or lunch. (Especially enjoyable after a run along the westside highway)

    One of my favorite neighborhood spots - a little out of the way from tourists & low-key. Get there early to work from the bar seats looking out on Charles St.

    Not my favorite place for the coffee, but a fantastic place to work and hang with friends for a casual brunch. Pastries are sourced from Balthazar and the place is social and bright.

    Beautiful new coffee shop in W. Village replacing its predecessor Mojo. Inviting wooden décor and good espresso!

    I love this place! One of the greatest avocado toast in town. Their Cortado is balanced and alarming. I would definitely recommend it.

    Great for quick bites. Not an ideal place for working. Laptop-free place. But, to be fair they do have a small area that’s laptop designated.

    Trendy, compact coffee house. Warm wood-panelled walls and great strong brews. Perfect for that rainy day in the village.

    Hip spot for good coffee. Bright interior, but a bit small. No problem though, since it's a block away from Hudson River Park!

    Adorable place. Coffee is good but a large was not large enough for me and the only muffin available was gluten free chocolate, too sweet and barely edible. Should have got the egg scramble.
