    The ideal downtown work spot. Great single origin coffees brewed with clover machines. Huge tables with lighting that doesn't suck. Reasonably good free wifi. Only downside is no power outlets.

    Excellent cafe tucked away just blocks from World Trade Center. Great roasting program & execution of espresso / pour-over drinks. Make sure to check out the Alpha Dominche pour-over machine.

    Best coffee in NYC? If you are into coffee, and I mean real, straight, black coffee, and enjoy the varietal differences of different countries, must try their impeccably brewed cups o joe.

    One of the top coffee shops in the city. They have an excellent selection of coffees, teas and coffee drinks. Don't forget to use your Kaffe card {Buy 10 get the next drink free}

    Unique coffee options and hipster baristas to tell you all about them. Downstairs is usually empty and quiet. Don't be turned off by the giant fridge in the room, great space for getting work done.

    The atmosphere and vibe of this place is great. They were just playing The Usual Suspects on the projector and people weren't obnoxious. Great coffee and espresso drinks. Laptop worker approved.

    Coziest downstairs of any coffee shop in Manhattan that I've found. Probably the only one too, haha. But it's got comfortable seating and very low noise levels which are great respite from the City.

    Cosy, free wifi and lots of sheep. The coffee is great and it attracts a very trendy crowd. Oh and the wifi code is ilovesheep

    Sheep, the shop's mascot, decorate Kaffe 1668's walls. Enter the cafe's cave-like basement for a completely different experience. Also, try the shop's fresh-pressed juices. Read more

    Great coffee! I get one before work most days! The croissants are good! The main floor space offers a nice ambience, and the downstair space is quiet - great for work or alone time!

    Hands down the best latte in Manhattan. A little expensive but how can you not love the fluffy little sheep that decorate the entire shop. Skip the food. There are better options nearby

    Secret work stations downstairs -- quiet, good light, big wooden table or private booth. (Wifi password: ilovesheep) Don't tell anyone!

    Kaffe has been one of our favorites since the coming of the third wave. With the addition of wine and juices, a solid spot whatever your needed poison or antidote may be.

    Any drink ordered here will be superbly prepared and delicious. Friendly service, the place has an excellent vibe! It does get quite busy; enjoy a quieter setting downstairs. Dig the light fixtures.

    Come for the stellar cold brew; stay for the sheep stuffed animals that hang out in every nook and cranny of the store. Read more

    Its pretty good... But not as good as laughing man in the same neighborhood. Yes, its trendier with some nice art on the walls, but the flat white at laughing man still wins hands down.

    They now serve cold pressed juices. Their coffee/espresso quality has a bit more variation unfortunately now than their early days with new hires etc. still, a very good place for the area.

    This narrow space is good for the mornings when you don't have to rush out the door. The atmosphere kind of feels like Stumptown but a little more elegant. Any espresso-based drink is good here.

    It can be difficult to get a seat near a plug upstairs, but the downstairs space offers many more. Wifi is strong, there's good food w/ a Nordic bent and a variety of coffee roasters on Clover. Read more

    A smooth and sweeter coffee than others. Great seating space that's dimly-lit and cosy but roomy at the same time. Wifi too. Small soy latte $4.50 to stay

    Great place to work with good coffee, strong wifi, and tons of seating. Charge your laptop ahead of time though, very few power plugs.

    They put the Clover drip on the map. They invented checking out with an iPad. References to the olde with lots of progress and cutting edge style. Oh, and great coffee.

    The basement is a fantastic study spot. Usually you'll find Stuyvesant HS students here. I'm glad an alternative to Starbucks finally opened up. Counter Culture served here.

    Love this place! Latte machiato and peppermint tea are my favs! Also love the hummous avocado sandwich and Swedish Cave cookie. All are incredibly delish!

    It would be good for working if everyone else hadn't already discovered it was good for working. Espresso was sweet and right, though I was slightly annoyed when the barista spilled my cortado

    Trendy place. Really good lattes. If you don't find seating as you enter, no worries, there's more downstairs and it's quieter.

    Although it can be difficult to get a seat near a plug, the modern industrial design of this place is compelling. Coffee quality is uneven but they have a good selection of coffee roasters & food.

    Don't be surpised if there's a line at this TriBeCa café. Free wifi with purchase makes it a good place to relax while you sip on your brew.

    they've ditched intelligentsia for some brooklyn-based roaster. while i trust the former, i must say that taste and quality have remained the same.

    Intelligencia, Ecco and Counter Culture all served up in this chill bi-level coffee shop (pop downstairs where they hide both the restrooms and seating for a dozen more caffeine and free wifi lovers)

    Cute place, and if you don't feel like coffee the tea selection is good too. No idea why they are playing Terminator on a giant screen right now.

    Amazing coffee. There is a small amount of seating - more than you might think - behind the pillar by the coffee bar.

    Hip, wealthy yuppie bankers and parents. And awesome coffee. If space permits, cool study area downstairs. Insanely expensive food.

    If you want to taste one of the most flavorful coffees of your life, get the Bolivian on the Clover. Downstairs area is nice, perfect for working where it's quieter.
