Interesting that most of the reviews below say about the same thing. I'd have to agree... good coffee but triple shots are a lot and it's expensive, and the staff can be surly - the staff elsewhere are similar.

Listen the place is cool and the coffee is great but man seeing some of the counter help first thing is not the way to start your day. You're lucky if you get a "hello" and forget about a "Thank you"... it never happens. AND ... then they expect a tip for basically grabbing you a cup of coffee with an attitude... the too cool for school attitude is an east village thing but really for the price of the coffee.. at least greet me!

This coffeehouse was among the first in refocusing the coffee experience around coffee itself. Its basic menu brings coffee back to the center of the experience.

The espresso drinks really are nicely made, but the staff tends to be cool and unfriendly in my experience. And although there's counter space, it's not really someplace you'd want to sit and savor and hang out. Get your coffee and have it on the little bench outside or at the park across the street.

Their attitude is ruining their coffee. Being arrogant for no reasons,,,,,we are not getting free coffee. It is not food stamp or refugee camp. I really don't know why it is necessary for the employees to be like that.

...but, even if the coffee is good, it's extremely expensive (do not b.s. me with the fact that it's french pressed or whatever). I asked for a single shot cappuccino and was told with a huge attitude that they make it with a TRIPLE restricted shot. I said that i cannot have a lot of caffeine 'cause it could raise my heartbeats to bother me and was told "don't you worry, it's only for flavor not much caffeine". Do they know what they are talking about? 3 shots are not a lot of caffeine?? I didn't ask for a discount! Pastries are confined in a tiny display, not so good neither, plus (with only two more customers sitting at a table) we waited 15 minutes for a cappuccino and a latte... Whatever...
