Lovely people. Really great coffee. A small selection of perfect baked goodies - all made fresh in the open bakery at the back of their liveky (new) location. You couldn't ask for a more perfect chilled-out location in the East Village, for your first (and second) coffee of a Sunday morning.

My wife and I come here as much as possible for their perfect cappuccinos- hot and iced. We loved the old 'window' location, but the new space is awesome and feels like home. The owners and baristas are fantastic. Don't forget to get a slice of olive oil cake or frittata!

This place never disappoints. it is amazing coffee and espresso drinks. No hype, just pure excellence in quality and preparation. Limited snacks, but all of good quality such as the scones and olive cake. No seating, but has a bar (like Italy) to rest your cup and enjoy the street action. Highly recommend as the best --

When I was travelling in New York City, I have made a point to visit the cafe Abraço which was on the list of Alon's Favourite Cafes in New York City. Alon Halevy is the author of the book The Infinite Emotions of Coffee. I ordered a cup of cafe latte. The coffee tasted good! The cafe latte went well... More

2nd time already that I pass by this small bar. Coffee and cappuccino are excellent and pastries too (the olive cake rules!). The place is so tiny you can't even sit but it's just perfect if you are planning to go for a nice morning walk in the east village. Also the Brazilian music (the owner is a Gilberto Gil... More

Friendly service. Excellent coffee. Superb coffee. Best coffee in the world. I was once standing at Abraco when an author who was writing a book on coffee took a sip. "Best coffee on three continents," she exclaimed at the first taste. It was then that I knew that it wasn't just because I loved the owners that I liked the... More

Prepare to stand in line to get your cup of morning coffee- Abraço Espresso is a tiny cafè that has a small selection of pastries (strange flavors) and coffees. We were told that all of the pastries either had traces of nuts or were made with almond flour- so not the best place for those with nut allergies! Coffee was... More

Decent enough coffee, served in a small slightly shabby shop. Requested a flat white but told they don't do that. They offered a piccolo instead which was fine just not the coffee I like. Not sure the reason behind not being able to make this coffee, im sure the barista is more than capable. Odd

Recent morning visit to try some of the best espresso in manhattan. The coffee itself lived up to the hype, but sad to say that the service was disgraceful, rude and unfriendly. If you are willing to look past the average customer service, then suggest you take a trip and sample the espresso...

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
