    good for working, but no electricity

    Iced chai here is perfect. Spiced well, sweet but not overly so. I like it with soy milk. Sun streams in through the windows in the morning and it's a good place for a morning coffee meet.

    Nice quiet spot to get work done or catch up with friends over a cup of brew (or a glass of wine)

    Superb coffee but most importantly, one of the best tile floors in NYC! 😜

    The drip coffee is so so. Not very strong. Kind of watery. Nice ambiance though and wifi.

    This East Village mainstay makes us feel like we’re sipping espresso on a side street in Prague, and we’re not mad about it. Also: that tile floor.

    My favorite cafe in the East Village. Light pours in from the large windows making this a great spot to read or study.

    Nice atmosphere, lots of good seats and free wifi for remote workers. Curious fact: Foursquare v1 was built in this place by its founders :)

    Delicious Nutella cookie sandwiches and solid coffee. Great vibes but note they don't have internet on the weekends.

    The feeling is this coffee shop is incredible, wood and tiles, light and different seating options makes this space unique and appreciated from all
  • Alexandros P.
    Cozy place with good coffee. Not a lot of space inside but you can still work or just sit in one of the stools and watch the people passing by.

    The most scenic coffee in the village, often busy, always good at atmosphere. Work there in the week, come with friends on the weekend (no wifi sat-sun)

    This corner shop with EV views is a great spot to read, drink coffee, and watch the world go by. The cookies live up to their reputation.

    Nice atmosphere here, but they've got an annoying wifi control (code per purchase, time limited) and it can get too dark to be able to read. They also turn off wifi on weekends. Pricey drinks.

    East Villagers flock here for the sunshine, espresso, and wine. Try their delicious croissants or nutella cookie sandwich (we’re SOLD!). Be warned: laptops aren’t allowed in the evenings. Read more

    one of my favorite coffee spots in new york city because it offers: several newspapers (NYT, WSJ, etc.), free wifi (weekdays only), and a relatively large amount of sitting space

    Do not go to @ostcafenyc. Way overpriced for what you get. They only offer one size for iced drinks and they are $6.75!!! (Mind you this is 2x shot but STILL!!)

    Nutella cookie sandwich appears to be heavenly. But in the name of good science, I'll need to conduct numerous taste tests.

    Great place on the east side for good vibes. The coffee/tea is good, but cash only (with a minimum for credit cards), and the working place is ideal for reading/getting quick work done.
