Lower East Side Coffee Shop

442 E. 14th St. New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-260-5842

Location Description:

A bastion of old-school diner fare in an increasingly gentrifying neighborhood, the Lower East Side Coffee Shop is the real deal, serving up cheap, American comfort food for longtime neighborhood locals. The look is classic diner: long marble counter, aluminum details, red leather banquettes, black-and-white photos and vintage tin signs. Breakfast is fairly basic; think omelets, pancakes, waffles and the like. Order a burger, topped with everything from American cheese and a fried egg to mozzarella and roasted peppers, or one of the many sandwiches. Soups, salads, pastas and entrees like baked meatloaf and sirloin steak are also available. The crowd varies dramatically at this 24-hour diner; come during the day or early in the evening and you'll probably find a crowd of aging local residents, while the post-last call crowd skews a lot younger. Parents with kids will be glad to know the diner serves Haagen-Dazs ice cream treats like sundaes and root beer floats.—Keith Wagstaff
