    Sangria by the pitcher---not too sweet and a great deal

    Hidden gem. Almost don't want to popularize a place you can go for dates, chat with girl friends, lounge or even work at! Comfy sofas, chairs, affordable food & Wine. Nice salmon. Great music.

    Great coffee spot to hole up with a friend or a book. Cozy.

    Had the worst octopus salad in my life here: boiled chew toys on a bed of greens that I then vomited up.

    A great place to chill with coffee, wine, and some great small dishes.

    Coffee and biscotti!!!

    When I arrived at 10 a.m. on a Saturday, they were playing Spanish music. When I left around 1:30 p.m., Katy Perry. *Shrugs*

  • Blake J.

    All of the food is horrible and overpriced. Good place to study though.

    Blake Johnson · January 8, 2014
  • Dylan P.

    Too much Lonestar and Faith Hill for my taste but the chairs are comfy and the soup was decent

    Dylan Portelance · November 29, 2013
  • Chant C.

    The Sugar Hill Golden Ale is on point.

    Chant C · November 18, 2013
  • Nicholas P.

    Wonderful place to sit down in a comfy chair and internet away.

  • Serious Eats

    It's kind of dark for studying, but the comfy well-worn couches, thrifty posh décor, chicken liver crostini, and cool (for Morningside) crowd made me feel like cozying up with Das Kapital was a treat

    Serious Eats · September 3, 2013
  • Danica Y.

    Try to crostinis! I'd recommend the fig and goat cheese or avocado. The antipasto is great too!

    Danica Y · September 3, 2013

    Love this place and the service. Good study spot, awesome coffee and delicious food.

    Oddie Moghalu · August 30, 2013
  • Martin S.

    Whatever you do, don't try the iced tea with strawberry and orange juice. It's absolutely horrible. Also, place is extremely overpriced.

    Martin S. · August 16, 2013
  • Park Slope Notary

    This place is very cozy. Same type of idea as the Tea Lounge in Park Slope, but on UWS Morningside. Near Columbia University. Feels like home & warm in appearance.

    Park Slope Notary · July 19, 2013
  • Harlem A.

    Somehow this bar/lounge seems more SoHo than Morningside Heights. The same owners as Covo at West Harlem Piers. Lots of food, wine and hefty portions satisfy the Columbia trekkers willing to splurge

    Harlem Ambassador · June 1, 2013
  • miss_millions

    Get an avocado crostini and two —yes, two— double-shot espressos made with the wonderful Danesi Caffè. You’re welcome.

  • Krevet

    Wonderful place, feels so cosy in here))

    Krevet · May 4, 2013
  • Mari K.

    there are a couple of tucked away places to charge your laptop - to the right as you walk in by the window, and behind the big couch

    Mari Kim · February 17, 2013
  • AP d.

    Great chai latte, crap soup, ok salads. Great atmosphere.

    AP du Plessis · February 7, 2013

    For the UWS crowd, including Columbia students. Pleasant, good coffee, good wifi.

    GNTLMN · January 22, 2013
  • Tara R.

    One could essentially live here. All the food, coffee and wine you need to get through finals

    Never able to connect to the WiFi here...that makes it good for being productive though!!

    Charlie · October 16, 2012
  • Jill W.

    Cozy atmosphere, but not worth the service. refused to even take our drink orders until our last joined us. Forgot items or charged us twice for others. Was stopped b/c our tip wasn't satisfactory.

    Jill Woodward · October 8, 2012
  • Citizen X.

    A regular after-work hangout, pleasant outdoor seating when it's warm, interior decor is eclectic and stylish, free wifi. Service is great when Maria is working, otherwise it's just OK.

    Citizen X · September 23, 2012
  • Iris X.

    Get The Tuna Toscano salad!!

    Iris Xu · June 7, 2012
  • Jinhyung P.

    Joe's Latte is better...

    Jinhyung Park · April 29, 2012
  • Felix A.

    Chiken, mango & asparagus panini is great.

    Felix Abarca · March 23, 2012
  • Elaine C.

    Sweet jams playing

    Elaine Colwell · March 18, 2012
  • Calvin C.

    Place is very chill, but the service is dull. If the server smiled, I could overlook the slowness

    Calvin C. · February 20, 2012
  • Amanda B.

    Max cafe is way shittier food than I remember + they don't have bacon & there's no such thing as a refill on coffee. At least they have wifi & you can hide away in the corner forever.

    Amanda Boekelheide · January 28, 2012
  • Charlie

    Ham and gruyere tramezzini is delicious and only $5.95!

    Charlie · December 13, 2011
  • Clea C.

    Try the croque madame, impressive!

    Clea Conner · December 4, 2011

    Slow service. Had to ask for the bill twice.

    Arran Skinner · September 18, 2011
  • Fei J.

    Try the Mango Chicken Panino!!! De-Lish!!!

    Fei Jin · September 16, 2011
  • Melissa T.

    Danesi coffee is the best! Chill out on the couch and relax about the service, just enjoy the space.

    Melissa Thomas · May 20, 2011
  • Marc S.

    Did NOT like the Sangria (red or white) Red was bland. White tasted like dish soap.
