Very good coffee and pastry with ample seating in a quiet space. This is an excellent place to take refuge from the throngs of merrymakers in the midst of Times Square.

Caffe Bene claims to serve quality European style coffee. Not even close! The latte we had was so weak we wondered if there was even any coffee in it. Can't believe I'm saying this but even Starbucks serves better coffee. It is a big place...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
