    Students at NYU (a 2011 Most Innovative Company) are drawn to this close-to-campus cafe, known for free Wi-Fi and good eats. Order a cup of the house blend and a chicken pesto sandwich.

    Amazing breakfast spot for casual meetings. Ideal for fundraising or serious BD talks.

    We love this tiny place for a delicious brunch – Get your fill with the Grey Dog’s Breakfast or be a bit healthier with the Homemade Granola. Expect to wait during the weekends.

    One of my favorite places to hang out on a random night and read a book or chat with a friend. Their coffee is in my NYC top 7.

    take your headphones out-the music here is probably what you're listening to anyway...if not better

    Really cool pulley contraption for getting plates up from the kitchen. Look for it!

    Love the Bay Area vibe. Window nook seating = best seats in the house!

    Grey Dog is the best place in the neighborhood to eat or grab coffee. Great food, cool staff, and they manage the tables well so half of them aren't filled with people working on their resumes.

    This cute and quirky cafe has an extensive selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. Also good for brunch and, unlike most cafes, serves beer and wine.

    #7 on nine grain. Mmm.

    Add cinnamon to your coffee in place of cream and sugar— you won't regret it.

    Eating alone? No problem. Ask the barista to borrow a complimentary book from their stocked library of NY Times Best Sellers.

    Surprisingly good burger. Amazing fries with old bay on them. Everything is tasty, though. Also... staff is really friendly. A good hangout when its not overcrowded.

    The owner went to University of Michigan, and this place is based on the famous Zingerman's concept from Ann Arbor!

    Can't recommend the Pulled Pork Wrap enough. $10's buys you a mountain of pork with homemade apple slaw, chips and pickles. Nom it.

    Get the sweet potato fries. Just do it.

    Great place for a meet up! Vegetarians: get the Country Style Salad with marinated tofu (sans onions). Huge portion and the tofu is cooked PERFECTLY- still hot with a cold salad. Delicious.

    Nice little cafe to grab a coffee and some breakfast

    The sweet potato fries here are incredible. They're light, crisp and not at all greasy, but be careful stopping by during brunch or you'll have to wait a while for your sweet potato fix.

    No wifi here which is nice. Bring a book and relax.

    Wide selection of gluten free items, including sandwiches, scones and muffins. (And their sangria rocks, too.)

    Best time to come on the weekends is 9am. Strollers have largely cleared out and the NYU kids are still in bed.
