    The best sandwitches and coffee in neighborhood

    Nice little change from some other place's coffee and sandwiches. Friendly staff and tasty fresh bread sandwiches. They have a strong organic coffee that I love and only place in the neighborhood to get a good coffee! My only comment is that the WiFi wasn't fast enough but they give it for free so you can't really complain.

    Good food, bad coffee

    The vibe and the food are great here, but the coffee, particularly espresso-based drinks, is weak and terrible. I have frequented this cafe for over a year and keep trying to like the coffee, but no...it's just not good. Nice owners anf wonderful sandwiches though.

    Fantastic spot in Harlem

    I'm rarely in Harlem, but was visiting a friend and then looking for a place to eat together. I have to say I was a bit worried I wouldn't find a place in the neighborhood where I'd enjoy eating, so I was pretty happy and delightfully surprised to walk into Spaha Cafe. There was a nice variety of tasty treats on the menu and I decided to sample the pesto chicken sandwich on crusty ciabatta, while my pal had the vegan sandwich with grilled vegetables & tofu on whole wheat. I have to confess that I LOVED my pesto chicken, it was exactly what my taste buds were craving and the ciabatta bread made it perfect. I tried a bite of my friend's sandwich, and even though I am not a huge fan of vegan food, it was pretty darned good. We were still a little hungry and not ready to leave yet, so we shared a carrot souffle and it was sweet and mouth watering at the same time. I talked to the the lady who served us and it turns out she was the owner. She was a sweetheart and talked about her store and how she likes to support local suppliers. I thought that was pretty neat. I left that store feeling full and feeling good overall. If I'm ever back in that area, I'm definitely stopping by this joint again.

    Nice change from greasy fast food options!

    I am new to this area of the city and worked nearby for the summer. I stumbled on this place one day looking for a bite to eat. The sandwiches are fantastic. I get the honey chicken salad on a multigrain bread ofen Quite delicious and different. All of the pastries look delicious and the lattes are great. This is definitely a welcome establishment in East Harlem offering fresh choices and healthier alternatives to pizza, fried chicken, McDonalds, etc.

    Great pastries

    Until this place opened, there was nowhere in the neighborhood to get a ham and cheese, sweet cream or almond croissant... Especially not anything like a Balthazar croissant (where i believe they get their pastries, thus justifying the cost). Of course none of this is vital to my existence, but it sure makes for a nice start to my sundays! The owner is there often and she's very sweet, and they have free wifi. In addition, it is a great place to grab a good loaf of bread to have with dinner.

    Something different in town

    this is certainly the place to go if you're tired of all the fatty and greasy food around the neighborhood. They're a little pricey, but it's nothing outrageous(and where else can you get raisin cream cheese)

    Can't get any better than this!

    This is a first class establishment all around! The salads, sandwiches, soups and lattes are the best I have had in Manhattan. They have generous salads with pesto chicken, cranberries, walnuts and goatcheese for only $7.95! Add the exceptional service, serene ambiance and free WIFI and you are in heaven!
