AQ Kafe or Bouchon Bakery? - Columbus Circle

uwsgrazer | Sep 26, 2011 06:07 PM

I'm meeting someone for coffee on a weekday at 1:30 p.m. Is AQ Kafe basically like Starbucks, in terms of being able to sit at any free table as long as you buy something (i.e., we won't be ordering a full lunch)? I was thinking of Bouchon Bakery but I'm concerned it will be crowded and hard to find a spot to sit, not to mention kind of loud to have much of a conversation. Would AQ Kafe be better in this regard?

10 Columbus Cir, New York, NY 10019
