I went to Simon Sips on my way to the office this morning because the line was four deep at my usual spot, Juicy Lucy.
My Simon Sips latte was excellent and service was fast and friendly. Based on my experience I am baffled as to why the place was completely empty when I went in (the two employees were the only others in the place).
If you commute on the F,V from second avenue I encourage you to give Simon Sips a try, particularly all of you Little Veselka regulars because in my experience the coffee there just isn't great.
Note: my completely selfish rationale for this post is that I want Simon Sips to make it so that it will continue to be an option for morning coffee (I think that I am going to split time between Juicy Lucy and Simon Sips) .
