Village Voice's Description
This tiny Italian café gives East Village residents yet another good coffee option in a neighborhood swimming in quality java. While affordably priced espresso is a major draw, owner Alessandra Veronese also tempts passersby with pastries from her native Venice. Tiramisu, available in flavors like chocolate, amaretto and apple-raisin, is Veronese's specialty, although she also serves things like cookies, tarts, cakes and Danishes. During the lunch, the normally quiet café gets a little busier as workers stop in for Panini sandwiches filled with things like smoked turkey and pesto or goat cheese and caramelized onions. Later, those looking for a snack come in for bruschetta topped with ingredients such as ricotta and wild mushrooms, plus small appetizers like spicy olives and pears with gorgonzola cheese. Freelancers and bored web-surfers can come in to the small shop, decorated with white brick, vintage posters and a bright red counter, to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi.—Keith Wagstaff
Tips from foursquare
Best espresso in the hood!
Best underrated coffee in EVill.
Amazing tiramisu, wonderful coffee, and sweetest owners!
Great coffee, Tiramisu & Staff! Try the Prosciutto & Asiago sandwich!
By far the best food in the neighborhood, especially the breakfast and coffee. Every pasta dish I've tried was pretty fantastic too. Small, clean, comfortable place with wifi and random, awesome music
