Overview

Cafe Life New York is an essential companion for anyone committed to discovering the true heart of one of the world's greatest cities. Using a mix of history, personal observation, and guidebook information, it showcases unique coffeehouses for visitors and New Yorkers alike, and guides readers to the ultimate neighborhood cafe experience.
