We live in Woodside and we love Aubergine! Great coffee, friendly service, and a quaint, warm atmosphere. It's very small so seating is limited but it never bothers us! They have very good sandwiches and the chili is TOP NOTCH. Seriously. It's one of our favorite neighborhood spots!

I've been to the cafe several times because it is convenient and consistent. I love the broccoli, cheese quiche and the balsamic dressing on the side salad. The menu generally remains the same and is simple but I personally like that as I know I can count on getting what i like and it is good. It's very neighborly. Their... More

Good coffee, a fresh mozzarella and olive sandwich on a soft crusty roll and a tasty Tuscan chicken panini. Lovely food and attentive staff.

The atmosphere in this place is very cozy and welcoming and the staff are usually attentive enough. The menu is very small and mostly never changes. I don't recommend any of the meat sandwiches because they tasted a little over-processed, but the vegetable and meat chilis are really great. Perfect for a brisk fall or winter day. They have excellent... More

Neighborhood standby. Be right at home in Chelsea. Decent but pricey hot beverages, some baked goods and daily specials somewhat more substantial.

I used to live in the building on top of this place. At the time, 1991, it was a crappy litttle bodega. Can't remember exactly when, maybe late 1990's, this Cafe was born. What an asset to the neighborhood. Besides the coffee, that have a vast offering of muffins, bagels etc, plus, free newspapers. Sort of a true local place,... More
