Quaint cafe

Quaint little cafe with a cute little patio with a dog's eye-view. They ran out of lasagna, so the server recommended the ravioli. Was not disappointed. Yummy and decent portion size, which included a side salad and garlic toast.

We are here twice, taking our food out both times. The sandwiches are made fresh to order. The bread can be a little thick, but when grilled is delicious. The ginger "chicken" was especially tasty. They offer breakfast all day, but they only open at 11:00 am.

We had breakfast 3 times during last year, always had good quality food and fair price. Last time we had cheese bagel, granola yogurt and omelette, simple and tasty! Definitely recommended.

This was actually the first place I headed to once I arrived in NYC - I am a fan of the book about tea that Moby released some years ago, and just had to try food at his actual cafe. The service was very slow, but it was busy so I can understand that. The food was just ok (and... More

The menu is all vegetarin- which is confusing at first because they list things like chicken salad. The "chicken" and other meats are actually processed fake meats. They have other items on the menu that do not include processed meats if you are oviding it. Many of the meals can easily be made vegan. I enjoyed the vegan chilli, and... More

As a vegetarian, I'm always excited to discover veg-friendly dining options when I travel. Teany is a great little spot in the LES. We sat on the patio, and really enjoyed the food and the vibe of the neighbourhood. I had the chipotle veggie burger, which was super delicious. Other reviews I read talked about slow service, but we had... More

I went to Teany's once and only once. I ordered a mozzarella, tomato, basil sandwich. I got my food after waiting over a half an hour. They messed up my order and gave me vegan bacon and lettuce sandwich, I tried it and it tasted horrible. The sandwich had way to much mayo slathered on it, and the lettuce looked... More

Apparently Moby visits this place now and again and he is right to do so. Great choice of lunch options and book full of different teas. I now officially declare their vegan chicken the best I've ever had (and be sure my wife took me to some veggie places before :-D)

I ordered the Tempeh BLT, and the chocolate peanut butter bomb and one of the tropical flavored hot teas. The Service was excellent, the food delicious. I cant wait to come back.

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
