This ground floor cafe/restaurant is attached to the Andaz 5th Avenue hotel and offers hot food, pastries and reasonable coffee.

The cafe is divided into a table-service area, serviced by polite wait staff and a long communal bench at the front of the building, overlooking 5th Avenue and the New York Public library. I sat in this beautiful spot to escape the crowds of shoppers, stop, take stock and watch the world go by for a while. A rare thing in New York.

The coffee was from Kenya, apparently and was very bitter. My double espresso was reasonably well made and served at an acceptable temperature in a small shot-glass.

The price of coffee here is a little higher than you can find in other areas of Manhattan, but not unexpected for a 5th Avenue hotel.
