Beautiful atmosphere with attractive decor, with plenty of seats inside and outside that have plugs for laptops/chargers. Very friendly and quick service! The coffee was decorated as beautifully as it tasted, perfect size also for a flat white. Only $4 whereas for the atmosphere and taste I would've happily paid more. Best coffee in NY so far!
As soon as I walked in and sat down, it felt like I was back home in Australia with all the recognizable accents (staff and customers) & the vegemite on toast option! I just stopped in for a coffee and it was just as good as anything you would get in most good Aussie cafes! Can't wait to get back to NY and have it again.
Damn! I went in expecting a substandard experience. Like my experience at other BSL locations. I was expecting the "running a business" aspect to be overpowering the food, coffee or atmosphere. Plus 10/10 reviews normally indicate that a place is pretty awful but trying to drum up business. But instead I had a great flatwhite and a cute mini muffin. The milk was perfectly textured. The coffee had a bit of punch, but was smooth and lingered. No under extracted sourness. No over extracted bitterness. The food coming out on other peoples plates looked awesome. Super fresh looking avocado toasts with crumbled feta. Bircher muesli. Looked really good. Service was friendly, helpful but not overbearing. Welcoming and efficient. When I compare the food coffee and service to the other local offerings like Toby's estate I'm just disappointed I didn't start coming to BSL regularly months ago. Nice terrace outside too. My only caveat is that this was my first visit. Hopefully all baristas have the same level of product.
On a bucket list holiday and been searching for great coffee and this cafe delivers both great coffee and food Coffee smooth and strong Food just like great Melbourne cafes worth the effort to get to Greenwich Village just for this great place
Perfect little cafe to escape the chilling temperatures of New York in February. While the seating was limited, we still managed to squeeze in the back, which however was right next to the door that staff used rather frequently. The coffee was on par with Melbourne coffee standards, despite lacking visuals on both our flat white and magic. But hey they at least had my magic on the menu :)
