    Quick! Over there! Observe the rich TriBeCa mom in her natural habitat. Perfect Nike Frees, running tights and nursing a post workout skim latte at 923 am. Don't move quickly! You'll startle her.

    Date Night Is...fueled by coffee, right? Well Kaffe (both here an a few blocks south) has the best around. The pour-over takes a few minutes, so grab a pastry while you wait.

    1668 is the year that New Yorkers started drinking coffee for breakfast instead of beer. 🍺➡️☕️🇸🇪

    Love the kale organic juice and the healing quinoa bowl. Great atmosphere, speedy service to order. But why NO wifi ???

    Great cafe on all counts. Shame it is the defacto spot for Citibank employees from across the way to steal away and bitch about their jobs. It's like a counseling session in here half the time.

    Good coffee and cute interior. Bit dark but the big wooden table at the front is great for small group. Variety of lunch choices. Portions are on the smaller side. Try the Cuban sandwich.

    Delicious $12 juice but the cappuccino tasted over extracted and the foam was less impressive than most modern caps. I'd say this is a good lunch spot, but if you want coffee hit up La Colombe.

    Love their mocha...once you have it here, there's no going back! ;) Still don't know what the whole sheep thing is about, I really need to google it one of these days! :) Love this place!

    Best coffee in TriBeCa. Great place to sit and take a break from the office... Try one of the free homemade chocolates.

    Best coffee in Tribeca. For lunch try one of their excellent salads or the chicken guacamole mango wrap or the chicken kale pesto panini.

    Perfect for when you want a good cup of coffee and no vitamin d. Seriously it is pretty dark inside, but the staff are very nice for for being vampires.

    Great place to hide out on a hot summer day and cool down with an iced latte. The coffee is great, and be sure to try their salads.

    There are two locations on Greenwich. The north location doesn’t have WiFi and is bigger and spacious. Lots of tables, but only one wall plug at the front. Come with your laptop charged.

    Great coffee selection and their pre-made food options are impressive. A great place to grab a cup of coffee and relax.

    Two Kaffe 1668 in TriBeCa - north and south sides - can't go wrong! Just a solid place to relax over a beverage.

    Super trendy and a bit over priced, but they make a mean cappuccino and is a welcome place to rest a moment while shopping on the west side.

    Enjoy the high ceilings, wooden benches, and lit candles. Oh yeah, and the coffee is good here.

    Latte CAT score - 6/9: Cup 2, Art 2, Taste 2. Cat thinks that his latte comes from the republic of mediocrity: the spoon is missing, the art is not clearly visible and the taste is nothing memorable.

    The chicken kale pesto panini is ridiculously delicious! I've ordered it 3 days in a row! Love this place.

    Amazing coffee and the perfect place for a meeting. I did however smile at the barista and she wasn't having it. Rude!

    Dimly lit coffee house, serving Intelligentsia coffee and great tea. Old movies play silently in the background.

    This Swedish café has opened a second outpost, just blocks from its first Tribeca location. Expect pour-over coffee, pastries and sandwiches. Read more

    Baristas at the Swedish café—with two local outposts—brew one cup of coffee at a time.

    Tons of coffee options. Note: the breakfast sandwich is as big as a McDonald's hash-brown...you have been warned.

    Whole wheat croissants are fantastic. Ask for a shot of black cat, as well.

    Decent coffee- unbelievably ow breakfast service. The breakfast sandwich- which is just sliced meat, served cold, took 2 min to prepare on a slow Saturday morning.

    Don't ask for any flavored coffees. You'll just offend them. Also, buy a sheep for $85.

    Not a bad lunch spot but the free iced tea is kind of a haze. Also very good cookies.

    Good coffee and great baked goods. No WiFi which should be a staple.
