    If we can actually manage to order a coffee (so hard to know what to get with a slew of brewing options ranging from aeropress to French press), the coffee (beans by Stumptown Roasters) is crazy good. Read more

    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!

    The little breakfast frittata is so good and the sandwiches are delicious. The coffee is perfect!

    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).

    After you place your order, walk through the red door in the back for the spacious garden. A great summertime place for breakfast and a book.

    They've closed the garden for good as of 2013 in order to save money on rent. Coffee is good, and there are some seats inside and on the sidewalk. No wifi tho.

    Kava is where I fell in love with Machiattos. Great backyard seating when the weather is nice.

    Excellent coffee, great decor, awesome garden in the back and stays open fairly late. It's a Meatpacking Zen Gem.

    Interesting combination of a place with demanding coffee and a night club/bar (art deco) atmosphere.

    Super nice. Came from working out and only had Amex which they don't take. Let me have my coffee and told me to come back another day and pay

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

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

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

    I love this place, but the prices went up significantly...$4 for an ice coffee is unacceptable.

    Nice garden in the back, if the weather cooperates.

    This seems to be my spot for warming up, cooling off and drying off before or after visiting the Highline Park.
