I've been going to this cafe for more than 15 years. Absolutely charming. A bit crowded but the coffee is good, the atmosphere is nice, and the desserts are solid. Sit near the window in the evening and enjoy the people watching or just soak up the atmosphere of the cafe itself.Recommended for:

MacDougal Street is one of my favorite spots in Manhattan and Caffe Reggio is definitely the city's coolest cafe. With genuine European and American artwork on the walls, a 100 year old espresso machine and an endless crowd of artists, poets, and NYU hipsters, Caffe Reggio is definitely the best place to stop and get an cup of espresso.
Hell, the place has a cameo in "Shaft."Recommended for:

Try to imagine Greenwich village around, oh... 1930 or so. Now, imagine stepping inside an Italian cafe to read the morning paper and have a cappuccino.
Ok. Back to the present.
There are a ton of places around the village that try to pull off this vibe. Some do ok, others not so much. Caffe Reggio is one of the best. They have kept this vibe pretty well as the neighborhood around it has turned from gritty to gentrified. It works for your morning coffee or late night post bar stop.
