We stumbled across this Italian style cafe on our walk around lower east side. The prices are reasonable along with good food to match. There's a dark bar like feeling to this spot which made the tables inside not as pleasant as the outdoor seating...More

Been here multiple times - the food is consistently good, service fast and attentive and the prices are great for the neighborhood. Happy hour wine specials are great value and breakfast/brunch is always popular. Get here early on the weekend to avoid a wait.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
