    Great Cafe and very nice people! You can sit outside or enjoy the nice tables inside. They have good coffee and fresh juices! Only downfall is it is cash only.

    Upper east side gem. Great spot to grab a casual meal, have a conversation or just grab a coffee and crank out some work.

    A good place to come to in the winter time, summer time, not so much. It's hot inside & their ceiling fans doesn't really do much. Go for take out or snag a seat by the open windows or outside area.

    Bagel with two eggs for under $4, and free refills! One of my new favorite spots.

    New Wi-FI session ID of "effys cafe Guests". The password is the phone number. Just digits - no punctuation.

    The wifi password is their phone number. But don't expect to be able to do anything. The connection goes in and out and the speed is too slow. Web pages never load. The starbucks next door is faster.

    The Healthilicious, formerly known at Effylicious, salad is a hit! Add falafel balls on top.

    The goat cheese omelette is really good, as well as the spicy chicken wrap. They just renovated and it seems to be under new management. It's taking some getting used to. Like waitress service? Weird.

    Free wifi. Cheap drinks. Perfect outdoor internet cafe. And doesn't vibe UES-ish.

    There is a bathroom--but you have to be pretty skinny and sure-footed to get down the tiny, winding staircase
