    THE neighborhood coffee and breakfast joint. Sandwiches are on point and their Iced Americano is the best in Chelsea. Doubles as a cozy bar in the evenings, so you have no excuse to leave. Ever.

    Grilled cheese with bacon on focaccia. 😍 Cramped tiny space where you can overhear every conversation, but so worth a trip for coffee, wine, salads, and sandwiches.

    The cutest! With barely room for more than 5 tables, red neon lights, tile, modern wood, music, and friendly local staff, this is the classic, efficient coffee shop/touch of local bar that is NY's ❤

    This is a great spot! Delicious food, really tasty and so fresh! Great coffee too. And omg I want to try the pastries, but the upcoming wedding won't allow it :(. Ha ha. Enjoy!

    The staff is very friendly and my salad was delicious. The place is lovely. People invading coffee places with laptops, don't come here after 12 as it's not allowed. Quite normal for a small place.

    Bit bummed their avocado toast is now on a massive baguette rather than a roast. Great place for a quick coffee and snack. Too small to work in. Really nice service.

    I like their policy of asking people not to use their laptops or tablets. It's too tiny in here to have people hogging the tables. Love their sausage breakfast sandwich and BLT.

    One of NYC's hidden gems. Skip the wait at cafe gitane and order the avocado toast with smoked salmon. Life changing.

    Great place for a breakfast with options. All food and beverage items available at opening. So go light or get something more hearty, whatever floats your boat!

    The avocado toast was delish as well as the cookies. Frank and Matt are super nice and attentive. Great place to have a bottle of wine and chat with friends.

    Avocado toast (with sliced tomato) delivered to my office is the most wonderful breakfast/snack in Chelsea!

    Cute spot to have a cup of coffee or a sangria, ha what a mix. Tight seating but cozy. Variety of great quick bites like the grilled mozzarella.

    Everything here is delicious. Avocado toast w/ salmon, arugula salad, chicken sandwich... the list goes one. Coffee is also great. Almond milk instead of soy!

    My mornings are a little easier with a great chai or cup of coffee from this place. If you're hungry, get the avocado toast! Satisfying and awesome.

    Great place to grab a late night coffee. Has beer on tap, but still has a chill coffee shop vibe at night.

    Drop by around 7-7:30 for a perfectly cozy after work wine 'n snacks scene. Don't be surprised if it clears out after one service.

    The egg sandwich is easily the best thing on the menu. Chicken sandwich a very close second - add some tomato to set it off.

    Cafe is fairly small but has a range of foods to try. We just got coffee but definitely come for the food as well.

    Nifty coffee spot that flys a bit under the radar. Free wifi, small space with exposed tiles and wood tables a plus. Coffee and location are average. Worth a stop through.

    A touch expensive for my taste ($5 for an iced tea) but I guess comparable for the area. Nice vibe and friendly staff they only allow laptop use in the morning.

    The cucumber Baguette toast with olive oil, lemon juice, and chili flakes has a peppery, smoked finish more sophisticated than the quaint space appears!

    The baked goods, by the owner's mother (Arlene's Bakery), are superb. Try the sour cream and olive oil cakes with some La Colombe coffee.

    Try the bacon, egg and cheese. It's made with cayenne pepper and it adds a delicious and unexpected kick.

    I'm a Grey Dog fan, but The Commons may have just nabbed the spot as my neighborhood favorite. Smaller, more intimate, quiet.

    The atmosphere and staff give it neighborly charm, but the product isn't really all that good. I had an egg sandwich and a coffee that were not really that memorable.
