    Found this via Foursquare - loved it. Great atmosphere to rest while around SoHo. Turns out after 5pm sandwiches are 1/2 OFF - Grilled Cheese & Iced Coffee was very good!

    For most coffee spots, it's either fast service, friendly employees or good coffee: pick 2 of the 3. This place nails all of the above like nowhere else in Manhattan. And the food is fantastic!

    One of my fave spots to work if you can snag a seat in the back by the outlets. Chill vibe, free wifi, good coffee, and only sometimes swamped w soho euros. You might want headphones for when it is.

    why would you want to be present with your coffee anywhere else? natural light, languages of all kinds, community tables, all wonderful things. a neighborhood nook in soho is not an easy feat.

    Great coffee shop, but not ideal for working. Weak wi-fi and a loud atmosphere. Use it for your cold brew fix or meeting a friend instead. And they have iced matchas too - yes!

    Pretty good cappuccino, the best in the area. Barista's are a bit too cool/hipster, always talking to each other and generally don't make you feel welcome. Maybe because its a hot spot and always busy

    The incredible muffins here are from Blue Sky Bakery in Park Slope, slight sugar coating with fruit filled centres, best I've had. Pair well with the cold brew.

    Don't feel like your 8th cup of coffee today? Try the Arnold Palmer. Not too sweet. And quite refreshing.

    In the middle of a bustling SoHo, the place has something relaxing and soothing about it. Love the food ans coffee served here; especially the turkey picnic sandwich

    Get an almond milk latte and sit in front of the large front window for a great people watching perch. They also have free wifi! Woohoo!

    Great place to sneak an iced coffee and a mini peanut butter and jelly sandwich (on baguette no less) while you're walking around Soho. Also a good place to chill and do some work on the long benches.

    The barista told me I couldn't get my almond croissant warmed up b/c the almonds would get everywhere. The audacity! This will be the last time I get a matcha green latte w/ almond milk.

    I consider myself an almond croissant addict. The one at Ground Support maybe wasn't the real (French) deal, but tbh quite good. Recommended!

    The woody environs of Ground Support complement the solid cup of coffee the SoHo shop serves. Benches, tree stumps, and a wood- trunk-as-table mark the front room, along with stacks of Nat Geos.
