“At night there is a quiet, cozy ambiance perfect for relaxing, reading, and generally getting work done.”
“Great coffee, hot chocolate and fresh baked rice krispy treats.”
“Great coffee, with just a touch of a scene- if you just want good coffee for a good price go around the corner to 18 & 3 to the Sunburst cafe- excellent everything- even coffee.”
“The interior was charming and very much a "real" coffeehouse (and they don't mind if you linger), the desserts were sinfully-delicious and the coffee was very good, the staff were exceptionally friendly & personable.”
“Awesome cafe, delightful ambiance, best-cup- of-coffee, wonderful selections and choices!”
“It's nice to have a place like this in the neighborhood, but my experience did not leave me with that warm, fuzzy "neighborhood coffee shop" feeling.”
“good coffee- miserable service”
“Overall, it is a nice place and if you don't mind possible attitude and the not-so-cheap prices, it is a great place to meet for coffee or drinks (they have a nice selection of that too!)”
good till the last drop. great food, great place. My friends and I had a really good time I would recommend it to all my friends.
A daily treat. If you work anywhere in the general vicinity of Irving Place, you should make this part of your daily stop to or from work. Great atomsphere. Friendly people. And most importantly, great coffee.
Beats chain coffee places hands down. I love going to bars, but sometimes I just crave a night out with the girls gossiping over an awesome cup of coffee - 71 Irving Place is where I go, no questions asked. The dessert menu will satisfy anyone's after-dinner sweet tooth, too! I especially like how 71 Irving is tucked away from the noise of Union Square - very relaxing ambience and friendly baristas too. I recommend going to 71 Irving after dinner instead of out to a bar!
Nights at 71 are Serene. Daytimes are good, but it's much too crowded at times. At night there is a quiet, cozy ambiance perfect for relaxing, reading, and generally getting work done. The candles add just the right touch. The night staff is usually curteous, friendly and good humored. I'm not sure who the waitress mentioned below was or what the reviewer meant by "wad", but I have never encountered any attitude from the staff. Perfect setting for getting away from the noise for a while.
