    It smells like mildew in here. Gross. They need to service their a/c system or something, idk, but it makes me question how clean it is.

    Eh. Baristas chatting with each other and totally attentive. Latte was mediocre and WAY too hot.

    The busiest of the Beans tends to get real hot from the sunlight in the early evening

    I love this spot. Cool atmosphere, nice staff. I love the teas, bagels, and the iced mocha is divine. If I lived in the area, I'd be here every day.

    They do not know how to make a good coffee at all. Asked for flat white, showed them how much milk should be added and still received a big cup with a milk filled up all the way to the top.

    Great coffee, but the service leaves something to be desired. I go here multiple times a week, and often weeks go by before my order is correct. Also, their "avocado spread" is just guacamole.

    Espresso so weak I thought my cortado was the world's tiniest americano

    This place should be banned for being nasty to elderly LES residents an employee there harassed an elderly man for sitting on the bench prior to ordering a bagel. Nasty place!

    Corporate coffee but not bad for a place to kick back for an hour, sipping on some tea.

    Best iced vanilla dirty chai I've ever had! Fantastic place to get some work done with fast wifi, it's spacious, and they even have printing.

    Although they r willing to help, they definitely don't have manner to warm the sandwich properly. Prepare yourself to get only cold sandwich or a warm but sticky one.

    Amazing music, good coffee, really chill and not pretentious spot in the East Village. Come here to do work or read a book. But hold your nose in the bathroom.

    The gluten free bagels here are awesome! They're are on the small side, but are the closest tasting to a real bagel!!

    My go to study spot during finals - free wifi and they are open until midnight. Dirty chai is great and they have Hale & Hearty soups for a cold night.
