Very mediocre. This small, historically significant cafe has a shabby air today. It is crammed with dilapidated furnishings, uncomfortable chairs and scuffed tables. Yes, there's "atmosphere," but overall, I had a sense of lack of cleanliness. The $15 brunch special is a reasonably good deal...More

When I lived in Greenwich Village from the late 1970's until the late 1990's, I had come to Caffe Reggio once for an espresso and a dessert and it was so-so. I returned this past week only because of nostalgia and convenience. The cafe is...More

Stayed at a hotel in the area and we visited caffe reggio for a late night dessert and early morning breakfast (on separate occasions). I've eaten here before and I really like it. Located on a busy street adjacent to NYU this is a classic...More

Hadn't been back in a while...it's still a wonderful warm envelope. Cafe Reggio is a real holdout, a throwback to the good old days in New York before chain coffee shops. I love the Reggio, still. Hopefully it's ambiance will never change. Stay away if...More

If you're walking around Greenwich Village, this is just along from Cafe Wha. It is dark, Art Deco-y and crowded inside and you may have to wait for a table, but it's worth it to be drinking a (very large) excellent coffee and eating yummy...More

Established in 1927. You can feel the in the air the true cappuccino smell) magic place with its own history, amazing food and crazy old furniture from Medici family. Wish to have an opportunity to have everyday coffee there. Oldest cafe in Greenwich.

We visited Cafe Reggio's on the recommendation of a New Yorker; apparently this is where you will find locals so that sounded good. On first impressions it was a quirky little place and when I say little I mean little! Seating is very cramped and...More

We noticed this place walking down the sidewalk on our way to the music club the night before, so thought we'd have breakfast here the next morning. We were not disappointed. Old world Italian decor inside, along with the freshest smelling pastries and coffee. We...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
