“It's all about the great coffee”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

My wife is really into great coffee, and Starbuck's doesn't count. So when we found this little gem of a coffee bar it was perfect. Found ourselves here almost every morning of the trip.

“Excellent for breakfast.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We had breakfast in here nearly every morning on our honeymoon. We tried the Mocha, flat white and the hot chocolates. All amazing.

The pastries and home baked cookies were very tasty.

“Ok for a quick breakfast”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

There are many options for a quick breakfast with cakes and sweet tastes. The cafe is average, the place is cozy and quiet but I believe the service could be more patient and polite. I would recommend this place for sweet flavours breakfast with a bit of warning about staff behaviour

“The Best Coffee In NYC”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Coming from Melbourne Australia-the coffee capital of the universe-I was very pleasantly surprised to find the culture espresso bar. Having been in the States for a couple of weeks and having to put up with the likes of starbucks etc... I had almost given up .
This is the way coffee should be made .Just fantastic coffee form the bean selection to the frothing of the milk.
How the rest of the country put's up with very substandard coffee I don't understand.
Anyway thank you again for continuing god's work. I look forward to my next trip.
