Have you ever watched those New York based sitcoms and chuckled to your self, saying “apartments like that don’t exist.” Have you ever wondered where the coffee shop from friends is? Well last week I found Max café which is the closest thing to it. In fact it might even have some improvements. It’s the ideal place for long conversation over a glass of wine and some reasonable food. The décor has a bit of antique European flavor with couches strewn about and an almost private back room. The food though very simple is always fresh and full of flavor. It has the home made quality that so many of NY’s coffee shops lack. For my taste the coffee is too strong but then Danesi is one of the coffee kings. Because of its location next to Columbia, the atmosphere is really young and almost not typical of so many places on the UWS. Max café is worth trying out if your in the neighborhood. How come we dont have more of these places?
