    The upstairs couch seating is cozy and on a nice day there's even a rooftop patio!

    The blended mint tea lemonade is amazing! I'm vegan, and I went in looking for coffee, but this drink did. It disappoint.

    Sandwich was ok - avoid the ice blended drinks. Taste overly sweet and not like real espresso

    Ice Limonana (frozen lemonade with mint) is perfect for hot summer days. They also got rid of the peanuts in the warm chicken salad for all the nut allergies out there.

    There is more space and is less crowded than other coffee places on the UWS. Maybe because of the wifi limitations, but who can blame them for that?

    The chocolate croissants have creamy Nutella-like texture inside, sans nuts. I usually get a cappuccino/croissant combo, a BLT, or a salad (sweet potato/goat cheese).

    I love the food but the service is awful! The counter cannot multitask and with one guy in the kitchen it takes forever for food to come out. A little bit of employee training could go a long way.
