    The large windows, jazzy music and amazing food make this place very special. Extra cozy! Try the octopus salad and squid ink pasta with crab. Also get a cappuccino served in a large, homey cup.

    This is the kind of place that makes you never want to leave the wvillage. Downstairs is a jazz bar at night, and a swanky wifi and blue bottle powered workplace during the day.

    A perfect spot to work during the day or evening (although there is a no-laptop policy after 7pm). Get a coffee or tea and sit next to the open windows. Wifi. Blue bottle coffee. Good vibes.

    Grateful I moved out of the neighborhood! The downstairs is salvageable but upstairs is a bistro and extremely busy/loud now. Head downstairs if you must for peace and quiet - beware of laptop zone

    They’ve got La Colombe coffee. They’ve got wifi. They’ve got outlets. And it’s amazing on a warm day with all the windows folded open.

    Unpretentious little coffee place with big windows, vinyl tunes, and decent espresso & cold brew. What more do you need? Bonus points for the almond and coconut milk.

    During the summer, whynot opens the windows wide for a nice breeze. Coffee's good, and the bossa nova tunes from the record player are even better.

    Cappuccino was a bit heavy for me. Get a cortado and take a seat by the floor-to-ceiling window.

    Fast (~14 Mbps) wifi by Time Warner. Two hours free with password "whynotcoffeenyc". Think it's unlimited with a TWC login. Laptop users are asked to work downstairs.
