This is a nice little place on the main strip for a drive through coffee and pasty to go. Nothing special, but exactly what you need to get on the road after a long weekend. The kids inside were also very friendly. We would return.

Excellent coffee, tea & light food. A favorite for many years; friendly service & easy, drive-thru access off Garfield at Front St. Only a couple blocks from Bryant Park for a nearby picnic in the shade overlooking the West Bay.
