  • Workers need to pay attention to serving customers instead of just chilling.
  • Have never seen so many people achieve so little. Definitly no express in this expresso...
  • Coffee break: This South Korean coffee chain has opened a massive location in Midtown. Pastries, gelato, smoothies, sandwiches and waffles are all on offer.
  • Wifi password benetisq
  • Sit in the back. It's like a library.
  • A great place to go if you're having an existential crisis, since the verdict will probably be... No, you don't exist.
  • Free WiFi and plenty of power outlets for all your gadgets. Get some coffee (and maybe a waffle) and get to work!
  • This place is great. Wifi is light speed and you can work here - tables and lots of them. Starbucks beware!
  • YOU get a forgotten order! And YOU get a forgotten order! Everyone gets a forgotten order!
  • Tip for the staff. If your till system goes down tell the customers waiting in line what's going on instead of standing there doing nothing
  • Cooked to order waffles are one of Caffe Bene's signatures
  • Get the red velvet latte and waffles!
  • Sit in the library in the back and regale other academics with your thoughts on the most recent episode of "Downton Abbey"
  • Spacious cafe, free wifi, yummy but pricey drinks
  • Great spot for those who are sick of the unprofessionalism of Starbucks, excellent coffee and good location within the Timesquare.
  • Waffle was delicious but incredibly filling for a skinny person. masaguru (?) latte was sweet
  • I don't know how it's possible to resist the waffles....
  • Excelente caramel macchiato!!' Puedes compartirlo en una gran mesa o disfrutarlo mientras navegas en internet!!
  • There are like 17 baristas, each more unhelpful than the last. Baked goods are underwhelming.
  • Beautiful cosy study area/library at the back, lots of plugpoints too for charging laptops and phones!
