Cafés on the Lower East Side Overview

Hotel Chantelle / SGT - Bar | Lounge in Lower East Side, NYC

While New York has no shortage of cafés, the Lower East Side cafés are the ideal place to sit, sip coffee, grab a bite and people watch. No Starbucks necessary in this neighborhood full of artists embracing the European art of grabbing a casual bite and drink while enjoying the company of friends. 

Full of weekend brunch spots as well as small eateries with great coffee, places like Pause Café and Café Grumpy serve up fancy cups of caffeine with locally sourced baked goods and gourmet lunch menus. For a place to sit and grab a bite, neighborhood staple Schiller's Liquor Bar has a vast array of quick bites and Stumptown Coffee is perfect for passing a lazy afternoon with friends. Or if Schillers is busy as it often is, there are plenty of small cafés packed with artsy hipsters lining Stanton Street. During the summer, Lower East Side cafés truly embrace European culture by treating their customers to outdoor dining, guaranteed to provide a day full of interesting people watching.

Packed at anytime of day, cafés in the Lower East Side are casual food and drink favorites for the city's laid back twenty somethings looking for a relaxing way to spend the evening or afternoon.
