What is all the fuss about old school tatty and dirty coffee shop. The coffee is disappointing although the service was ok.

Cafe Reggio on MacDougal Street is one of the last of the old time cafes the West Village had a plethora of in the '60's, '70's, and '80s as well. Sad to see them go. One imagines artists and writers frequenting these cafes, people playing...More

With a claim to being the first cafe in the US to have a cappuccino machine this spot has lots of old world charm. Needing an afternoon break that did not include Starbucks this place was a delight. The coffee was excellent too!

The Platonic ideal of a Greenwich Village coffee shop (not many left, by the way). It's a zillion years old and looks it. The raffish ambience has been the backdrop for many a college student pondering the mysteries of life and the universe. It's small...More

Step back in time, and enjoy delicious coffee (who needs Starbucks when you have Caffe Reggio's original machine), tasty pasta, and an eclectic atmosphere. Well worth the visit.

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.
