    These differently flavored iced lattes - O M G. Also, remember to bring cash. The inside is amazing, very nostalgic of an older New York. The food's a little lacking, but like I said, those lattes...

    Huge ancient paintings and sculptures. Antiques on the walls and small round tables with wire chairs. Cappuccino is fantastic and they have a big menu of small plates. A great place to hang out.

    Caffe Reggio's claim to fame--a 1902 cappuccino machine-- allegedly introduced the drink to New Yorkers. Check out the cafe's Renaissance-era decor as well.

    The chairs aren't comfortable and the bathroom could fit in an airplane, but the capuchinos are top-notch and the servers are always nice. For a real treat, try a sundae or banana split.

    Leave it to the bohemian Greenwich Village Caffe Reggio to brew coffee the way mom used to make it—hot and then over ice. It's a great cup with the right amount of bitterness and a medium body. Read more

    Such a wonderful place to relax, visit with friends, or get some work done in a quiet corner. Try their special hazelnut cappuccino. It was easily the best coffee drink I've ever had.

    A cozy, old-world café in Greenwich Village with good coffee and good food. Come here for a tasty retreat on a rainy day and get their cappuccino and uno panini.

    NYC's oldest cafe, where some scenes from “Inside Llewyn Davis” were shot, still feels like it's from a different era. An eclectic mix of patrons, small tables, and surprisingly good food.

    The Ravioli al Pesto & Parma Panino are top-notch. The hot coffee has never been the best in town, but boy do they know how to make it iced. The bathroom has a Dante quote above it for good reason.

    The space is quiet and cozy, and the service is nice. There is wifi but it requires some info, no outlets. Dim, but not bad on a sunny day when the windows are open. Tea is good.

    Established 1927. Continuously operated. First caffe in the United States to serve Cappuccino. Ornate bronze espresso machine built in 1902. Some of its decor dates back to the 16th century.

    Cappuccino. Everyone else has said it already for a reason: it's fantastic. And make sure you have a little time to sit and people watch or read the paper.
