    55555 by Maxwell F.


  • Valerie DCute cafe with outdoor seating in front and super cozy areas inside. Great for a meal or for studying. Staff is friendly and service is quick.

    55555 by Valerie D


  • Madeline Noin McDavidComfy velvet armchairs and sofas, delicious paninis, and good deals on wine. Cozy place to study with good wifi during the day, or grab a drink in the evening.

    55555 by Madeline Noin McDavid

    55555 by Karen Johnson

    55555 by Robyn Grier


  • Sameepa S.Hidden gem. Almost don't want to popularize a place you can go for dates, chat with girl friends, lounge or even work at! Comfy sofas, chairs, affordable food & Wine. Nice salmon. Great music.

    55555 by Sameepa S.

    55555 by FoodFashionFolly


  • CarolynGreat coffee spot to hole up with a friend or a book. Cozy.

    55555 by Carolyn


  • Katya KazbekHad the worst octopus salad in my life here: boiled chew toys on a bed of greens that I then vomited up.

    22222 by Katya Kazbek


  • BobExcellent food. Service was friendly and quick.

    55555 by Bob


  • Chris EvansA great place to chill with coffee, wine, and some great small dishes.

    55555 by Chris Evans

    55555 by Michael T.


  • Erry JCoffee and biscotti!!!

    55555 by Erry J


  • Brad G.When I arrived at 10 a.m. on a Saturday, they were playing Spanish music. When I left around 1:30 p.m., Katy Perry. *Shrugs*

    33333 by Brad G.


  • Blake J.All of the food is horrible and overpriced. Good place to study though.

    33333 by Blake J.


  • Dylan P.Too much Lonestar and Faith Hill for my taste but the chairs are comfy and the soup was decent

    55555 by Dylan P.


  • Chant C.The Sugar Hill Golden Ale is on point.

    55555 by Chant C.


  • Nicholas P.Wonderful place to sit down in a comfy chair and internet away.

    55555 by Nicholas P.


  • Serious EatsIt's kind of dark for studying, but the comfy well-worn couches, thrifty posh décor, chicken liver crostini, and cool (for Morningside) crowd made me feel like cozying up with Das Kapital was a treat

    55555 by Serious Eats


  • Danica Y.Try to crostinis! I'd recommend the fig and goat cheese or avocado. The antipasto is great too!

    55555 by Danica Y.


  • Oddie M.Love this place and the service. Good study spot, awesome coffee and delicious food.

    55555 by Oddie M.


  • Martin S.Whatever you do, don't try the iced tea with strawberry and orange juice. It's absolutely horrible. Also, place is extremely overpriced.

    33333 by Martin S.


  • Park Slope NotaryThis place is very cozy. Same type of idea as the Tea Lounge in Park Slope, but on UWS Morningside. Near Columbia University. Feels like home & warm in appearance.

    55555 by Park Slope Notary


  • Greater H.Somehow this bar/lounge seems more SoHo than Morningside Heights. The same owners as Covo at West Harlem Piers. Lots of food, wine and hefty portions satisfy the Columbia trekkers willing to splurge

    55555 by Greater H.


  • miss_millionsGet an avocado crostini and two —yes, two— double-shot espressos made with the wonderful Danesi Caffè. You’re welcome.

    55555 by miss_millions


  • KrevetWonderful place, feels so cosy in here))

    55555 by Krevet


  • Mari K.there are a couple of tucked away places to charge your laptop - to the right as you walk in by the window, and behind the big couch

    33333 by Mari K.


  • AP d.Great chai latte, crap soup, ok salads. Great atmosphere.

    55555 by AP d.


  • GNTLMNFor the UWS crowd, including Columbia students. Pleasant, good coffee, good wifi.

    55555 by GNTLMN


  • Tara R.One could essentially live here. All the food, coffee and wine you need to get through finals

    55555 by Tara R.


  • Nataliya R.Pleasant place to sit and read/do work, but internet won't always work. Great coffee and nice service, but overpriced and mediocre food

    55555 by Nataliya R.


  • CharlieNever able to connect to the WiFi here...that makes it good for being productive though!!

    55555 by Charlie


  • Jill W.Cozy atmosphere, but not worth the service. refused to even take our drink orders until our last joined us. Forgot items or charged us twice for others. Was stopped b/c our tip wasn't satisfactory.

    11111 by Jill W.


  • Hakim A.A regular after-work hangout, pleasant outdoor seating when it's warm, interior decor is eclectic and stylish, free wifi. Service is great when Maria is working, otherwise it's just OK.

    55555 by Hakim A.


  • Iris X.Get The Tuna Toscano salad!!

    33333 by Iris X.


  • Jinhyung P.Joe's Latte is better...

    55555 by Jinhyung P.


  • Felix A.Chiken, mango & asparagus panini is great.

    55555 by Felix A.


  • Elaine C.Sweet jams playing

    55555 by Elaine C.


  • Calvin C.Place is very chill, but the service is dull. If the server smiled, I could overlook the slowness

    33333 by Calvin C.


  • Amanda B.Max cafe is way shittier food than I remember + they don't have bacon & there's no such thing as a refill on coffee. At least they have wifi & you can hide away in the corner forever.

    33333 by Amanda B.


  • CharlieHam and gruyere tramezzini is delicious and only $5.95!

    55555 by Charlie


  • Clea C.Try the croque madame, impressive!

    55555 by Clea C.


  • Dime G.Best coffee ever

    55555 by Dime G.


  • Charlie$10 minimum on credit purchases!

    22222 by Charlie


  • Arran S.Slow service. Had to ask for the bill twice.

    22222 by Arran S.


  • Fei J.Try the Mango Chicken Panino!!! De-Lish!!!

    55555 by Fei J.


  • Melissa T.Danesi coffee is the best! Chill out on the couch and relax about the service, just enjoy the space.

    55555 by Melissa T.


  • Marc S.Did NOT like the Sangria (red or white) Red was bland. White tasted like dish soap.

    22222 by Marc S.


  • Jake W.Relax! Have some coffee or a drink and worry about the time.

    55555 by Jake W.


  • T.J. B.The Mediterranean Salad (fruit, walnuts, yogurt, and honey) is quite refreshing and a wonderful gluten-free option that is filling.

    55555 by T.J. B.


  • Claudia S.Great atmosphere, service is a hit or miss. You can stay for hours and not get kicked out.

    55555 by Claudia S.


  • Amythe music in this place is so bizarre, but I love the atmosphere otherwise.

    55555 by Amy


  • Avi F.wifi password is in a bowl at the bar.
