    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).

    Great cappuccinos, very cute garden out back, and the best destination in the meat packing area for coffee. Will def be a regular here!

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
