The vibe is relaxed and the couches are cushy at this lived-in, low-key East Village coffeehouse. Free Wi-Fi attracts laptop-toting locals who settle in for long stretches while munching on very good panini, decent quiches, and occasional specials like an excellent paprika-dusted hummus served with French bread. It’s B Cup’s desserts that’ll hold your attention, though; it’s hard to resist the giant Oreos, dense brownies, and chewy rugalach in oversize glass cookie jars along the counter. Coffees are inexpertly prepared; you’ll fare better with teas, like house-made “ginger twist,” pungent with lemon. Rotating art and photography displays, often by neighborhood artists, jazz up the room’s exposed-brick and dark-wood scheme. If you come with computer in hand, the choice writing spot is a secluded two-top in the back, cut off from the rest of the café by a protruding bathroom.
