    Large but cozy, Lucid Cafe has become a favorite Woodside working spot, w/ free wifi, plugs, and two good standing-height window counters looking through the full height windows onto Rooselvelt Ave. Read more

    The food and drinks are a bit pricey but it's definitely my favorite study spot in woodside :) Love their cafe mocha (even though I rarely get it because it really hurts my wallet -__-)

    It is sure one of the top choices for Espresso Coffee in NYC. ANd their waffles are amazing. Nice place for studying or getting a hot cup of coffee to start your day.

    i love the space, you can nurse a cup of coffee for an hour here and they have outlets for your phone. My favorite lunch hour spot!

    Ask for your coffee to go, even if you're staying. The to go cups are bigger than the to stay mugs.

    Honey lemon ginger tea and the green tea latte. For food, the waffles with fruit!

    I'm a huge fan of the honey lemon ginger tea, especially with a cold or as a hangover cure.

    Coffee was ok. Pasta dish was small and the shrimp non-existent. But it was cooked al dente. Nice place. But filled w/ wi-fi free loaders not buying a thing. Pareto's Principle at it worst.

    Make sure to ask for a coffee stamp card. Buy 10, get the next one free.

    Tried the new cafe. Got an espresso that was made with a light roasted coffee bean. Foul. Also got a drip coffee that was watered down. Sad. 3 cafes in 3 years all bad. This place is doomed too. Sorry

    Be carful with the lids on the to go cups. They slip easily and can cause spills.

    $3.25 for 20 oz coffee is a bullshit price. Nice place though.
