This place has been there forever. It is very old worldy and shabby chic with miss matched table and chairs. It is very tight and hard to pass between the tables, especially with coats. Do not come here with a crowd or people. It is...More

Lovely and charming vintage cafe with one of the best home made cappuccinos I found in NY. The place itself has a singular furniture from the beginning of the XX century. As charming as delicious!

We called into Caffe Reggio mid-afternoon for a late lunch and were delighted to find the breakfast menu available. The scrambled eggs were sensational (and accompanied by a free mimosa!) and we loved the old world décor, including the silver expresso machine that brought cappuccinos...More

Very rude & unhelpful staff. Space is small and cramped and the coffee is average. Personally would not recommended this place.

Caffe Reggio in Greenwich Village has a delightful indoor and outdoor space. We choose to sit outside for "people watching". Americano coffee served in a huge cup. World's smallest bathroom is adorable.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
