Can anyone recommend a not-too-pricey place for late morning on a weekday over in the East Village or Alphabet City that is:
bright and/or cheery;
fairly roomy; and
somewhat quiet (good for conversation)?
I'm looking for either a neighborhood classic or new and kooky. Definitely want to go someplace where we won't be squeezed into a tiny corner or needing to shout to be heard. I need to get back to the person I'm meeting by Friday, so if you can think of a place, please let me know as soon as you can - Thanks!!
