    Like a retro coffee shop out the East Village the Ear and its eclectic and friendly staff make the cafe feel cozy and welcoming in otherwise gritty downtown Union. Playing cards and board games await!

    Perfect for date night, meeting a friend or getting together with a small group. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. You have to go to Van Gogh's!!

    Their "gelato" is just ice cream. But overall, great staff and nice ambience. Great for first dates, or if you just want to eat good food :)

    Great coffee, yummy food, friendly service and a really chill vibe. You can even make a great meal out of just their soup of the day and a bowl of pasta salad.

    Great place to chill ad unwind, they have crappy old furniture that manages to seem hip. That in itself merits a visit. Try their desserts, very tasty.

    This place has really gone downhill since my last visit. Menu revamp is not so great, they cut my favorite dessert & service was crap. Coffee's still good.
