Friendly owner, gave us free pita & humus dips and upgrade our Hot drinks for free. If only we live here, we'll come often..

Effy's is a comfortable little place to go and plop yourself down for a light meal or snack. It's a block east of the 92 St Y and I look forward to visiting the Y's speaker series several times a year knowing that I'm going to give myself time to stop in at Effy's. Last night I had a chicken wrap with a cup of coffee. Food is always good and seems fresh, They offer a nice selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads. Order at the counter and they will bring your food to you at your table. So long as it's not too cool outside, they leave the front open to the street and there are tables outdoors as well. You can go and eat, use your laptop, read or just relax over your food. Prices are very reasonable. Service is relaxed and pleasnt.

Good food in an average NYC setting. Communal seating inside. Small tables outdoors are nice. Order at the counter inside, they will bring it to you.

"Thank you" is what the neighborhood has to say for Effy's Cafe. Without it, there would be no outdoor cafe to plant yourself with your laptop and munchies and beverages. The big coffee chain in our neighborhood is too small and totally indoors. Effy's offers more space, more to eat, more to drink, and personal friendly service from the owner himself. Effy's cares about its neighborhood because it is invested personally in its neighborhood. Great place for salads, sandwiches, etc. Great place to meet up with friends and make new ones. Great place to just decompress with a coffee or tea. Thank you.

This is not a destination location kind of place. Good for sandwiches, wraps, salads, coffee and so forth. When the weather is nice you can sit outdoors and watch the world go by such as it is on 3rd ave.
