    The tomato soup is 🔥, a must order on a rainy day. Great salsa music and fun staff, an independent café serving beer and wine we are lucky to have close to the madness of union square. Free wifi!

    Alternative baristas serving perfect Macchiatos in East Village. Expect a modern style , chill environment interrupted by the steady flow of young urban professionals and NYU caffeine cravers.

    Paõ (gluten-free Brazilian cheese bread) is the perfect savory addition to an almond milk latte. Each one has a few big sea salt flakes on top.

    New Saturday morning spot. Egg sandwich w/ pesto 👍, dirty chai latte (includes shot of espresso).
  • Project Latte: a NYC cafe culture guide
    A daytime coffee shop, nighttime bar, Wayside brings a wifi workspace, Intelligentsia Coffee and eclectic quality snack plates to the East Village. Try the pan de quejio - 3 for $2.

    Wayside's coffee is great, its staff is friendly and attentive, and it's nice to hear Spanish music over the loudspeakers.There's free wifi but it isn't a good place to work if you need space

    Nice spot to just relax and catch up. Good coffee, live music on Friday nights. They also have a special if you buy a bottle of wine you get 6 cheese bread

    Best cheese bread ever. EVER. They chrun them out throughout the day and if you're lucky, you'll be there right when the cheesy balls come out of the oven.

    Good place to catch up with a friend - they have designated sections for working / laptops so there is space to sit and talk. There's also a bathroom!

    great food, but it get's expensive quick. I ordered a bacon, egg, and cheese on an everything bagel with an iced coffee, and my total was $17

    Hidden gem for those work-from-home-but-need-to-get-out-of-the-house days. Especially great during the hot, summer months.
  • Project Latte: a NYC cafe culture guide
    The Intelligentsia espresso needs a little work, but from 11am-4pm, before it turns into a bar, there's free wifi and good snacks, pastries & savory food.

    Yummy neighborhood spot with cozy and friendly as fuck vibes. Try the egg sandwich - egg, pesto, mozzarella and a coffee ;)

    Really great muffins but they sell out of all 6 that they get by 9AM & for the life of me I can't figure out why they don't get more of them to sell.

    They have really excellent peanut butter cookies, with a great blend of gooey, chewy, crunchy. Pretty amazing.

    No decaf coffee, but a great place to grab a drink, bite, or to hang for a little. They have Wi-Fi too.

    Egg sandwich is incredible - get it on sourdough. Not a great place for laptop work though - they have a tiny computer only zone.

    Get a Pao de queijo to go with your drink. It's a chewy cheesy garlicky ball of goodness

    There's free wifi available before 4 pm! Try their dirty chai latte with almond milk, and get $10 off your Cups app plan using code "gtyzl"!

    Very open and bright space but the soy latte I had was very weak and watery tasting. Hopefully things pick up and change as they ease into the new digs.

    They serve intelligentsia here. Drink that. Or the red chili latte/chai if you're feeling curious. But tbh it's iffy at best.
