    Nothing like grabbing a morning coffee from Kava, and then take a short walk at the high line.

    I love the decor of this place! The baristas were nice enough. The prices were pretty steep. The coffee is otherwise good. I got a cortado and thought it to be good enough.

    It's a small, cute place with great atmosphere, coffee and food. We got a Cortado, a Cappuccino and a Chai Latte and they were really good. The owner is awesome but the service is lacking.

    Not aging well. They added a TV, got rid of the gelato counter and converted to US size portions/cups.

    If you have your own hotspot and it is nice outside, the outdoor area is great for working. Otherwise, the lack of public wifi and limited indoor seating mean you should find another spot.

    The garden is beautiful! Espresso is very good and more Italian style (less intense/overwhelming than your average american hipster espresso).

    Wine in the garden after work was lovely, until the "whoa"... closed at 8:30 p.m. It's a coffee place after all. A lovely garden and great coffee!

    When you order a cortardo, make sure they don't think you said frittata. There's no latte art on those.
