It is a historic landmark for the American who considers NYC the Mecca, the holy land for writers, artists, the bold, the brave and the lost souls dazed with wanderlust that trek to New York from all corners of the globe...at any moment of the day, I recommend a stroll into Cafe Reggios. In the summer, you can find this side walk cafe overflowing with beautiful people enjoying their cigarettes and cappuccinos. In the winter, seeped in romantic 1920 decor with the afternoon light streaming into the window... it is the perfect place to seduce a lonely tourist to a private tour of the village. Love at first sight is possible, well at least loving a cafe at first sight.

This place has the best cappuccino outside of Italy. The atmosphere is great -dark, ornate, cozy- a good place to sit and have a conversation. They also have a decent selection of Italian desserts and the food is good as well. I go there regularly and introduce my friends to it at every opportunity.

Had been to Cafe Reggio on a previous visit and enjoyed the breakfast. It's a great little restaurant with plenty of atmosphere--typical village funk. Went back this time after a show at the Blue Note and had dessert and coffee. Dessert was mediocre, sadly, and the decaf not so good either. Whatever you do, avoid the minuscule washroom; it was the filthiest place I'd ever been in and the staff seemed blase about the condition of it. If you must succumb to the call of nature, learn to hover.

Caffe Reggio is a great little coffee shop in a fantastic location in Washington Square. The food is really cheap and surprisingly good! The breakfast plates are good, as are the pastas. My personal favorite is the American cheesecake with fresh strawberries. It's so delicious, I often dream about it! Portion size is good, too. Give it a try!

We came here to have a small bite for lunch and were able to eat outdoors. The prices are very reasonable. (Note: but soft drinks are expensive). The omelet with ricotta was outstanding - they obviously use "not-your-ordinary-ricotta" for the dish!! Would recommend this!

This is both the cozy, old-New-York place to take your new friend and the place to set up shop when you have work to get done on a Tuesday afternoon. The coffee is only so-so, but the cappuccino is to die for. (I always get the plate of four cookies, too.) It's an original.

Amazing place for a cup of joe and good food too (had the eggs benedict - very yummy but no sides so not so filling). The food is not great value for what you get so maybe just stick to biscotti and cap.
