    A cozy French cafe with chocolate chip cookies and a great Toby's Estate cappuccino. If you're hungry, get their toast with garlic scramble eggs. Free wifi, mamannyc is the password.

    Lovely coffee shop with a great Matcha latte. Tiny place so it's not easy to find a free spot, anyway, don't forget to check the room in the back for more seating

    This beautiful coffeeshop & bakery also serves sandwiches and quiche. Borrow their copy of the NYT and read it at one of the tables in the airy back section while you drink your coffee.

    Might be the best iced matcha latte in NYC. They use panatea matcha and strain it so it's extra velvety. Crowded but when you grab a spot, it's perfect.

    The cookies are making some waves in the cookieverse. The oven/kitchen is pretty much right behind the cash register and you can watch the cookies come out as they bake them all day. Read more

    Friendly staff, great coffee and food. Whimsical decor. It's hard to get a seat during the afternoon for lunch. If you're just going for coffee and you want to sit, go before or after lunchtime hours.

    Feels like stepping into hipsterfied Paris. Affordably luxurious spot to sit with coffee. Ridiculously gorgeous pastries. A go-to for lunch salad (pick 2 or 3 of a rotating high-quality selection)

    I just had the most delicious pain au chocolat in New York. I wish I had taken a photo but I was too busy dealing with melted chocolate and crumbs. They're small, so get two if you're hungry.

    A perfect casual lunch spot in SoHo with a spacious and chic back room for doing work/reading. Portions are hefty - I'm always tempted to get the 3 salad combo but fill up on 2.

    Avocado and egg tartine looked old and a little stale but tasted surprisingly good - tomato mixed through and a little chilli. OJ is fresh and coffee looks very good

    They do have amazing chocolate chip cookies. But watch out, they are filled with nuts in case you don't like them. Also grab one of the refreshing lemonades at the counter. Special taste promised.

    Iced coffee is insanely good - some of the best I've ever had, tastes really chocolately. Also love their salads for lunch, really filling and flavorful, so order whatever with confidence.

    This bakery and café is a perfect oasis in the 'hood. While their chocolate chip macadamia cookie falls short of Levain's, their other edibles make for a good lunch or snack.

    The WiFi is spotty and not very dependable, but it's worth being unconnected for a while just to eat those cookies, which give Levain's Bakery some serious competition for best cookie in NYC.

    Beautiful little spot. Try the lavender hot chocolate and a Nutella Madeleine. The matcha tea is more on the almond milk tasting side. Not as matcha as I'd hoped

    1.5 hour limit on the Wi-Fi! On the plus side, it's pretty speedy, especially if you're there in the early morning and get the entire back room to yourself.
