The personal is welcoming. The service is pretty fast. Good coffee and good orange juice. The avocado toast were tasty but a bit expensive in my opinion. Maybe because of the location. It's nice

Staying in East Village, just off 2nd Avenue, we visited Cafe Mocha for breakfast almost every day during our stay. The staff are lovely and friendly and the food reliably good and satisfying. Drop in if you're in the neighbourhood!

This place is a hidden gem and I definitely recommend stopping by for brunch. They have an extensive menu, but the crepes are a must-try. Menu substitutions are expensive, but meal prices aren't bad. This was a nice place and I'll probably return.

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
