    I haven't tried their coffee here but they do have soy milk since I had their soy chai tea latte which is amazing! Made with care. Great service and one of the best corners for coffee or tea in LES!

    Staff were extremely friendly, space is very nice. Small, but if it gets too crowded, there's space downstairs, and just quiet enough for a meeting or to get some work done! (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    They remodeled the place a couple weeks ago and rebranded as Irving Farm coffee roasters because Irving bought 88 a while back. Prices went up on food 20-40% in general, but place and ppl still great.

    Great coffeeshop for meeting up with friends or reading. Big windows. But no longer has wifi, and the "cozy downstairs area" is a pretty dark depressing dungeon with the kitchen next door.

    Come for the Irving Farm iced coffee (w/ iced coffee cubes), stay for the Fleetwood Mac on the stereo. Bring a book—it's hard to find an outlet for your comp.

    This is a nice cafe with nice and good-looking baristas who brew a great coffee. Check out the Cafe Latte (hot or ice).

    A great, mellow place to grab a coffee and a snack. Best for catching-up with someone or doing something small, like reading a book.

    One of the best cappuccinos I've ever had, an I consider myself a connoisseur. They also play a great selection of jazz in here.

    The iced coffee is the best because the ice cubes are frozen coffee. Also, the salads are fresh and absolutely delicious.

    the chai and the don ho drink is amazingly good and now it's closed. Is 88 Orchard moved to another location or officially closed?

    One of those hard to find cafes in nyc where you can just sit, have coffee, read and people watch. Their morning sandwiches are delicious! Read more

    The sweetest baristas in the city. Sit by the window and people watch or cozy up downstairs.

    Try the vanilla bean syrup in your coffee. It is out of this world and they make it in house!

    They don't allow laptops after 5pm during weekdays and not on Saturdays because they get so busy. Just a heads up. Great place though!

    Iced coffee with coffee ice cubes - not THE best ice coffee, but much more consistent over time compared regular cubes. Worth a try.

    Downstairs is an icebox, but a quiet icebox. If you have lots of work to do, bring a sweater.

    Downstairs is always super air-conditioned in the hotter months. They also have a bunch of board games down there.

    If you're a hot chocolate fiend, ask for the caramel instead of vanilla extract. Delish.

    Uncomfortable seating, unremarkable but serviceable food, neutral service and watery average coffee make this (inexplicably) popular cafe an aggressively mediocre breakfast spot.
