We're from Brooklyn. We lived in Manhattan. We are now sojourning in Florida, hopefully temporarily. For those who recognize the subtle story of Passover reference: 10 points!. We come back to visit NYC to make sure our boys don't become crackers and that our cortices don't atrophy. We stay at The Pierre. I make sure that we go to The Viand. It is a quintessential NYC coffee shop. George the owner is omnipresent. The turkey sandwich was named best in NYC for a reason. It's crazy good. The booths fit two anorexics comfortably. The counter is classic. One does not come here to linger over a demitasse. If you want that, go to The Regency for a power breakfast with, ugh!, TV producers. However, if want to feel the real power of NYC, the 1.21 gigawatts of the city, where real people stop on their way to changing the destiny of the world, then come to Viand. Bring the kids. This is NY, not Epcot, baby.

We came here for breakfast on the way to visit Central Park and it's obvious this place has a real local following as well as a tourist one. The food was yummy, the service was good and I was full for the rest of the day! Would definitely eat here again.

Great place near CP. Stopped there before we went to the CP Zoo. Breakfast came out quick. Great service. Me, the wife and two kids sat at the counter. Very good coffee. Heads up: cash only, no credit cards.

Small dinner on the corner of 61st and Madison. Regular breakfast fair at decent prices. The lattes and coffee were excellent. Lunch sandwiches are fresh and handmade.
