Have gone here twice this summer while visiting friends in NYC. Got the iced Mud mocha coffee which was some of the best coffee I've ever had, and got the banana pancake, which yes was only one pancake, but was so big and so thick and SO GOOD that I had to take a whole third of it to go.... More

One of the coolest spots in the East Village. Beautifully done with great attention to detail. There are a variety of breakfast options with Mexican elements in a lot of them. I loved my enchilada and my wife loved the breakfast burrito. The cappuccino was seriously good too. Good value for money. Very friendly staff. Awesome place.

Called into Mudspot (also known as Mud) to meet friends for a coffee whilst over in NYC. This place had a great vibe, as well as friendly and knowledgable staff. I recommend the Mud Mocha, damn nice... The East Village is a cool, happening place. Hell, Jimi Hendrix old apartment is in the same street.... If I am correct, the... More

We visited for brunch on the recommendation of our son who has been studying here. Although fairly tight on space we were comfortable enough to enjoy our excellent brunch. There was a really interesting choice of brunch dishes and a good selection of drinks. For a fixed price you got your meal, a large coffee and a cold drink too... More

All day breakfast in a grungy Indy place. Food is good. Sitting in the patio to be recommended. Service is nice. A little overpriced for the quality offered.

A grungy hangout - indie music, dark inside with music posters and art on the walls. Popped in for brunch. Food was ok - we had the banana waffle with fruit, the omelette and the huevos rancheros. All were fine, nothing great. Service was slow. Coffee was good, again not great. Had to pay extra for a latte over the... More

Love everything about Mud - love the coffee, love the all-day breakfast, love the staff, love the location, love the customers, love the atmosphere, love the tiny bathroom that reads "In Pursuit of Magic." Because, really, this place is complete magic. They have created bliss for solo artists and the romantic couples alike. After one visit, the staff already remembered... More

Love the coffee and the food is delish as well. Small, but full of character. It is a great place to start the day. I highly recommend the caramel cappuccino and the nutella and banana sandwich on sourdough bread.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
