    I used to love this place until they tried to turn it into a table-service joint. I can carry a cup of tea, thanks. Otherwise, great for tea and free wifi lovers, with extra seating downstairs.

    Best place for coworking or meetings near Washington Square Park! Quaint, often quiet and cosy.

    I got the mac and cheese and the mixed green salad. DELICIOUS. For tea in the neighborhood I prefer Bosie, but this is a nice alternative. Props for their paper bag light fixtures.

    The Mac and Pesto, while quite good, was a complete salt bomb! Avoid if you feel like tasting anything for the rest of the night.

    Seems every time I come here it's raining outside, but this place is a wonderful refuge no matter what the weather. Wide selection of teas, wifi, and cozy atmosphere for weekdays or weekends.

    If a very nice and good-looking guy greets you at the entrance of the Wine Spot but you didn't hear him because you're an idiot, smile, and don't follow my mistake because you're also an idiot.

    This place was much better when it wasn't table service. Now it's dark and not very inviting.

    The table at the far corner of the upper room is great but it was terribly cold there because of the working AC right above it

    If you come here, don't plan to stay. Students spread their books out and there's no where for regular customers to sit

    Considering a bubble tea is close to $8... They should really shape up the negative attitude the staff has. It's deplorable.
