We were walking along Madison Avenue and decided to just have a cup of coffee, and maybe a beer at one of the tables so invitingly placed on the sidewalk. Looked good, the weather was beautiful, the street was abuzz, great location. We ordered two single expressos, a double expresso, a beer and one piece of cake. The charge came for over $95 for the four of us. I did not realize until I got home that they charged for two double expressos ($30) instead of only one, small piece of cake, very good, I must admit ($21).... just imagine the surprise. I cannot comment on the food, but if you just want to stop by for a drink, a cake, a cup of coffee, forget about it, just pass by and keep your money. Fortunately, we then went to Brooklyn at Vini & Olii in Clinton Hill and had a lovely dinner, with wonderful appetizers, pasta, seafood and two bottles of wine and the total came to $250, for 6 adults and one child. Lovely, low-key atmosphere, quick service, quite affordable and fun. What a difference!
