Cafes in New York: Listed By Type

Updated Oct 05 2014 04:43 PM EST with 116 listings
Cafes traditionally serve desserts, pastry, light meals and often are outside in season. Some have music, others are more like the European coffee houses with with lively discussions and newspapers.

Cafes generally refer to small, casual eateries that are not usually as formal as a traditional sit down restaurant. Some cafes offer table service, some offer more of a take out style of dining. In the past few years, cafes in New York City have become quite trendy, mirroring the European style of eating outdoors and watching the world go by. Head on over to the Rockefeller Center Plaza for the most iconic New York experience and have a light bite to eat, get your cappuccino fix or sit down for cocktails. In the wintertime, the center turns into an ice skating rink and and there are indoor cafes where you can watch while keeping out the chill.
