    New Wi-FI session ID of "effys cafe Guests". The password is the phone number. Just digits - no punctuation.

    Great Cafe and very nice people! You can sit outside or enjoy the nice tables inside. They have good coffee and fresh juices! Only downfall is it is cash only.

    The wifi password is their phone number. But don't expect to be able to do anything. The connection goes in and out and the speed is too slow. Web pages never load. The starbucks next door is faster.

    DON'T BUY ORANGE JUICE. IT'S NOT FRESH SEQUEEZED! Taste is definetly tropicana or something else but not fresh!

    Upper east side gem. Great spot to grab a casual meal, have a conversation or just grab a coffee and crank out some work.

    The Healthilicious, formerly known at Effylicious, salad is a hit! Add falafel balls on top.

    Kelly Ahearn · August 16, 2013

    Abram is definition of customer service - he will remember your name & order before you even reach the counter. Lots of UES morning locals. Cash only!

    A good place to come to in the winter time, summer time, not so much. It's hot inside & their ceiling fans doesn't really do much. Go for take out or snag a seat by the open windows or outside area.

    Jillian W · August 22, 2012
  • Beebs

    Rise and shine wrap!!

    Beebs · August 21, 2012
  • Robin L.

    Hummus sandwich is tasty. Iced tea is foul. Guys behind the counter are rude. We get it, its lunch, you're busy with takeouts. Don't make the people AT your cafe feel like they're inconveniencing you.

    Robin Lange · August 16, 2012
  • Jenny H.

    Rise and shine wrap and falafel wrap are two of my favorites. Free wifi. Cash only!

    Tel aviv salad is awesome

    Darrin Malone · July 6, 2012
  • Jane H.

    Don't get the tuna... too much baguette, dry & tuna is not that good. The falafel wrap was much better.

    Jane Hegeman · May 3, 2012
  • Dave E.

    One of the best "virtual offices" on the UES

    Dave Eryk · March 3, 2012
  • Owen B.

    The powered seats are the four on the left hand wall bench as you enter.

    Owen Brunette · February 29, 2012

    The best vegetarian item is the energy wrap, sans the turkey!

    There is a bathroom--but you have to be pretty skinny and sure-footed to get down the tiny, winding staircase

    Megan · January 16, 2012

    Questionable cleanliness. 2 health closings in 3 years. Outdoor seating is awesome thou!

    Maura Daly · August 20, 2011
  • Drew W.

    Free wifi. Cheap drinks. Perfect outdoor internet cafe. And doesn't vibe UES-ish.

    Drew Wingert · August 20, 2011
