Friendly café where I can spend hours

Chloe | Jan 17, 2005 03:19 PM


I am looking for a laid-back cafe where I can go and hang out and maybe do some work in the afternoon.

I want a comfortable place, not too loud, where they don't care how long you stay and where I won't feel guilty about accupying a table in exchange of a single coffee - sounds simple but then I always end up at Starbuck or Cosi and I don't want to do this again!

Preferably around Gramercy, East Village, Nolita but anything friendly below 30th street would be greatly appreciated.
