    Forever and always my favorite cafe in NYC for chilling out and eating a good meal. In the winter I order the white mocha. Soooooo good

    Good place for getting breakfast/food/coffee and it has the wifis. Team SpotOn/Fondu got together here quite often back in the day. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The espresso here is darker - it's the style you'd find in Italy, in contrast to saltier and more acidic espresso in other NYC coffee shops.

    I like this place. Good coffee in big cups. Free wifi. A little noisy and service could be better. Also, stay away from sandwich 25.

    Sit outside if you get the chance. It's very relaxing and one of the cutest coffee spots around.

    I'm a fan of the iced tea varieties and the carrot cake cupcakes. Lots of Frank Sinatra music playing in the background.

    Get a spinach, mushroom, and sweet onion frittata. Out of this world, and incredible deal for 8.50

    I disagree...The cranberry tart is amazing, perfect for the people who want dessert but not something overly sweet and perhaps... Tart? Altho if you're looking for sweet their red velvet is A+

    Chocolate chip cookies! Also, the only coffee spot in Gramercy where you can actually really sit down and work.

    DANGER OF TOXICITY!!! The croissants I bought here had a chemical product taste caused by a silpad baking mat used without pre-cooking -said the owner talking only of smell & underestimating the issue

    Good place for work and food. Coffee (brewed at least) is pretty mediocre compared to others in the neighborhood like Pushcart and Madman.

    Some staffs are much more friendly than others. Coffee size in the States is huge. Be prepared.

    I love Sunburst for the espresso drinks, pastry, atmosphere and wi-fi. I do not suggest the food. Unless freezer-smelling defrosted rubbery chicken breast is your idea of dinner

    Ask if you can put the milk in your coffee yourself - they always put too much

    If your idea of a nice breakfast is to sit around waiting excessive amounts of time for a slightly lower than average meal and deal with the attitudes of the workers then this is the place for you

    actually the cranberry tart is quite hideious too. A bunch of sour cranberries in a dough basket with nothing to hold them together (no custard just some strange chocolate sauce)

    Stick to take-out or delivery. The table service is abysmally slow, even when the place is less than half-full.

    The size difference between a tall drink and a grande drink is minuscule. Not worth the extra $0.50.

    Sandwiches are very boring. Probably a better place to have a latte or capp rather than a lunch.

    Great coffee, terrible employees. I'll never be back. It's unfortunate, as I live a 1 minute walk away, I'd rather walk 5 blocks than deal with rude and useless staff.
