“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

This was such a fab place to end up at the end of the day. The staff are amazing and so friendly and the drinks and snacks good. Not cheap but then nothing is in New York!

“Great Coffee Shop on Times Square!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

This was our first stop each morning, next door to our hotel. Great coffee, great cakes and great staff!
Get a loyalty card. After 10 drinks you get a free one.
Very busy, but lots of staff so queue goes quickly.
Fantastic range of drinks......all great!

“I should have gone to another coffee shop”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Very rude staff! They have all types of waffles but they will not let you mix andmatch toppings! The staff is very lazy. Clean environment and calm reading place. Other than that I have nothing good to say.

“Good coffee at last!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Found this place listed as one of the 30 best coffee spots in NY and had to try it! After nearly 2 weeks in the US it was good to find somewhere that knows how to make coffee that wasn't tasteless and weak. It even had a good crema. Not as good as so many places in Sydney, but definitely the best I've found in NY. The pastries were also good and the bookshop setting was calming and interesting. I will return!
