Their cappuccino was really good-and I drink a lot of coffee so I can tell when its instant generic coffee (and yes even the best restaurants serve this-horrible) I went here with a friend, who had a mochachino and loved it. Their drinks are really rich and they have great designs with foam-the baristas really know their stuff. So why am I only rating this restaurant a 3? I follow a halal diet, which basically means no pig for me. Most of their sandwiches, which looked great but tiny, were made of various types of meats. Would it be wrong to have more veggie options? My quatro formagi sandwhich (which was a piece of toast with a glob of cheese) was only ok. My friends tartuffo sandwhich (mushrooms and cheese) was a little better but only just a little bit. Bottom line-skip the food, the crowded restaurant, and feeling like maybe you should have worn your prada shirt and chanel bag, and just head for the amazinnnnng drinks.

I don't know what is so special about its famed coffees, but we love the cookies and sandwiches are good too :)

Been coming here for years and have never been disappointed with the fresh tasting paninis and hot chocolate. Have tried multiple hot chocolates around NYC, most of which taste like crappy Nestle-Swiss Miss mix. But this hot chocolate is something else. It is our favorite and absolutely DELICIOUS!

Precious, oh-so-studied decor, cramped and airless room, average food and service, astronomical price tag. Definitely for those who dare not wander too far from the beaten path.

This is definitely the most authentic Italian panino I had in NYC, but price was certainly very American! We spent $50 per person for a brunch. I would definitely go back.... if somebody else paid for me!

I've been eating here for years and still think it's great. The atmosphere is definitely cramped and filled with "beautiful people" but that adds to the charm. Everything from the coffee to the tiramisu is amazing. This is one of the few lunch spots on the UES that isn't filled with baby strollers and children. The bill does add up quickly however. I like to think it's because they import all their meats and cheeses but with food that good, who cares?
