Foursquare Tips

  • Be prepared to wait in obnoxiously long lines and don't count on getting a seat in the Cafe.
  • A much better alternative to Starbucks with a smooth and rich coffee. Pair it with a delicious muffin. Or take some beans home to brew it yourself.
  • This architecturally stunning spot on the Columbia University campus has fast free wifi, courtesy of the college, real good sandwiches, quality baked goods and great coffee.
  • Espresso Macchiato is better here than anywhere else in the world and now I can't go anywhere else. THANKS.
  • For an iced drink on a hot summer day, get the cold brew. Great blend.
  • Don't try the espresso
  • Just don't come here unless you can stand obnoxious douches.
  • So far the best I've had in Columbia.
  • We don't enjoy Joe's espresso as much since the switch to Intelli Black Cat, but today's thick, bright shot had a fruity enough aftertaste to overcome the popcorn-y tinge and left us wanting another.
  • Joe's good coffee is a given, but the Manhattan mini-chain specializes in friendly, helpful service.
  • Amazing coffee, awesome floor-to-ceiling windows. Great place to study if you can snag a table. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • Ingenious use of the iPad. Also scope out the super cute coffee guy ;-)
  • If you haven't tried the French Dip, you are really missing out. If you're vegetarian, the Guacamole & Hummus Sandwich is the tastiestiest combo of vegetarian fun between two awesome slices of bread.
  • I really an amazed at the quality of the coffee here
  • Great dirty chai.
  • The coffee is the hero, but those sea salt chocolate chip cookies are goddamn amazing. Take some napkins, because the chocolate can get very gooey.
  • Awesome espresso.. get 10 $2 coffees.. your 11th $5.50 large ice mocha is free!
  • Okay coffee. Columbia crowd. Beautiful building. Beware of long lines during school hours. I wish it opened earlier.
  • These chairs leave weird imprints on legs wear pants or a long skirt if coming to do work or sit a while :)
