    We love this cozy and inviting coffee shop, mainly for its awesome pastries, iced coffee, and library in the back - making this the ideal place to get some serious work done.

    Get a flat white ($3.75) and go find yourself a seat in the back. Very cozy and comfortable. I could spend the whole day here. You can grab a book to read from the library or use the free wifi.

    I used the Cups app for a cold brew after work, which was very good. $8 for any of their thoughtful selection of wine. Record collection and books in the back= super cozy.

    The library in back has couches and table space to work with. You can pair your novel-writing with a cold brew or glass of wine, if you choose, plus this spot is open until 9 p.m. for night owls. Read more

    Smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber sandwich on fresh wheat bread but cold $10, soy cap $4.25 and cozy seating in back. Skip GF almond biscotti and over buttery choc chip cookie.

    This coffee shop has an amazing identity, coffee, pastries, and atmosphere! If you are looking for a real NY coffee shop experience, then this must be at the top of your list! Oh, and it's cheap too!

    There's a nice, cozy, living room like room in the back with comfortable sofa and armchairs and books. Interesting selection of teas. The coffee is fresh and testy, but somewhat pricey.

    Chai Tea Lattes are so yummy! They’re on the sweeter side, so if you’re sensitive to that, ask for reduced sugar. Also, the bathroom code is 4249.

    One of the best coffee shops I've been to on my trip to New York. Loads of space, decent latte, fast wifi. Love the decor. The front is good for working, but the library is good for relaxing

    Drip coffee, fresh bakery and even almond milk. Communal table in front great for meetings. Back library perfect for relaxed reading. Could use more seating, but for Midtown East this is a real cafe.

    The coffee here is alright, but if you're looking for a place to study or get work done there's a small library in the back. It's fairly quiet and there are comfortable couches. Love this place!

    Amazing coffee, cool ambiance, perfect for a coffee date or your usual every morning. If you stay, they usually throw in a cookie as well. Rewards card is a nice bonus as well.

    The most trendy coffee shop in midtown? La Colombe cappuccinos with fast free wifi, comfy couches, and oversized lamps.

    You may walk by thinking this is another small, cramped coffee shop but it has bookshelves in the back and lots of chairs (for new york standards) AND they open late (9pm) on weekdays!

    I love the sofa at the back. After lunch it turns into a hang out/interview(?!) spot. Seems like they use real chocolate for hot choco. not too heavy or sweet. Great ambience but not enough plugs

    My favorite coffee shop in the city. Grab a coffee and relax in the back library, or buy one of the many pastries they carry from the best bakeries in the city.

    Busy and loud upfront. And while it may be hard to find a spot in the back, if you get one, it's quiet and cozy.

    Coffee is good without bitter bite, walk to the back for seating on large leather sofas, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are thin and tasty.

    Great coffee shop. Love the frittata sandwich. But they pour their cortados like lattes. Waaay to much milk, makes the espresso diluted. Be warned fellow cortado fans

    Adorable library and sitting area in the back that I could camp out in all day. May return to UES just for this cute spot -- and I live below 14th!

    Lots of seating in front and the library in the back is ideal and cozy for reading and working. Iced cold brew isn't bad, haven't tried others (yet).

    If you can snag a seat in the back, then be comfortable and enjoy it for a long while. You're own study full of books and warm-colored woods.

    Really awesome coffee shop. Sit in the back - funky furniture but good luck getting a seat, especially during the Midtown afternoon rush 😏

    La Colombe coffee at dark library where they play record music. They also have wide array of food. I just wish those wifi-freebie only people don't take up seats...

    Be wary: there are no permanent cups or mugs here. At least on the Sunday I visited the guy behind the register was surly and indifferent -- perhaps he was hungover? Still, the single-origin is good

    Delicious muffins from blue sky bakery in Brooklyn and friendly baristas--feels like a downtown coffee shop transplanted to midtown east.

    Needed a midtown, mid-day spot to conduct an interview. Plenty of space to sit. A little noisy with music but finding a place during the lunch rush that had space was a challenge.

    Cool, cute lounge area at the back but not the best to work from as not much table space and dark mood lighting

    A latte and an apple turnover make a winning breakfast combo. If you have time to kill, the library in the back is an amazing place to chill.

    Busy, but sick coffee shop whose playlist just went from Banks to Jhene Aiko to ZHU. Line to receive your order sucks, but the library in the back is beautiful!

    I had the Cappuccino which was quite good but small. Get the large one. The decor is fantastic and very relaxed in the back.
