    Hardest place in the world to get to from the upper west side, but I have to admit it's worth the effort. I had a pumpkin coffee, because I'm basic, but they did it perfectly. I'll be back

    Absolutely love this place. I always get the quiche of the day. Great music, great atmosphere, great coffee. What more could you want?

    No matter how full of regret I am, I always have room for B Cup's eggs on ciabatta. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly sized. And their iced cappuccinos? Heavenly.

    FRRRR-EEZING! They really like the air-con in this place! It's a nice spot to work from if you happen to be in Alphabet City, but the coffee's a bit lame. Bring a jacket. And scarf. And mittens.

    Great coffee. Even better vibe. Sit and chill. Great rainy day in the village sit and ponder life spot.

    Chill, cute and unpretentious coffee shop – eerily similar to the one on Friends. Get a standard Iced Coffee or go a little fancier and get a Double Chocolate Mocha Espresso Freeze.

    Surprisingly hard to get work done, but it's good for lunch. The hummus sandwich is best on Rosemary ciabatta

    Outlets are in the back, get the wifi pass at the register, couches + chairs + tables. Music is wonderful. There is a neighborhood feeling to the place. Try the chicken sandwich with avocado.

    Soy latte $4.75 for 12 oz. on a sunny corner with couch and benches outside. Friendly spot for locals.

    Really nice staff. Not a ton of outlets but you can find some by the back couches, the front counter by the windows and next to the couch in the front.

    Love this funky cafe. Free wifi and great sandwiches and salads [tuna plus avocado] make this one of my favorite places to work.

    Good atmosphere, but shitty coffee. You can find better environments with better coffee for cheaper. I can heat my own oregon chai & buy the carton for cheaper, too.

    Great vibes. A tad pricey, but they do have a loyalty punch-card. Prosciutto wrap is my usual. Mediocre coffee. WiFi is much better now. The key is posted next to the bathroom.

    Excellent food and coffee, but the WiFi is spotty; I wouldn't rely on it if you need to get real work done

    One of the only decent places in Alphabet City I've found to do work. A little hippie dippie. Bring headphones if you're trying to focus.

    Best chai I've found in the East Village. And some great music selection. Food is overpriced though.

    The iced coffee is one of my favs in the neighborhood. Try the egg wrap with goat cheese for bfast or post-workout. Remember, it's cash only!

    Free wifi password: bcupcafe212. They are on the Cups app too! This is a great study spot for people who like white background noise.

    Well...the chai is good. But $8 for a chai latte and vegan cookie? Ugh. Not the old East Bill, for sure. Skater-boy baristas as redic and the terrible 90s alt-rock needs to go.

    I love this place but I had to not come as much cause it's way to expensive... $14.40 for two cherry mocha's and a pecan bar? That's crazy.

    The hummus plate is large - practically a full meal of its own. Order a plate of veggie goodness, and wash it down with a fresh lemonade on a hot summer day!
