“Strongest Espresso You'll Ever Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2009

I pretty much crossed the city to get to this coffee shop but it was worth it. It's easily overlooked--the inside was packed with about five people in it. I really liked that the owner himself was pulling each shot of espresso from the manual espresso machine because he knows what he's doing. It was an excellent shot of espresso but definitely the strongest one I've ever had. If this doesn't wake you up nothing will.

“The BEST COFFEE in NYC (and I think the best food too!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2008

After we started to go to Abraço, we got rid of our coffee machine -- how could we even begin to drink home brewed brown water when nearby is the best the world has to offer. I mean this is why people live in New York!!!

They also have lovely lunch; with 3 dishes being served daily (Usually a soup, salad and sandwich - but to use these simple words really does no credit to the gastronomic lust they create in you).

All at a very reasonable price. For our friends who arrive, this is the #1 spot we bring them too!!!
