Though it provides caffeine and concierge services to visitors from the upstairs Abingdon Guest House, Brewbar welcomes all—tourists, passers-by, and West Village locals alike. With some walls the color of warm coffee cake and another of raspberry-painted brick, the pocket-size cafe mimics one of its many baked offerings (which, in contrast, are king-size). Its glass-topped counter case houses an array of designer pastries: croissants and pain au chocolat from Balthazar Bakery, moist coffee cakes (served in two-inch-thick slices) and hefty muffins and scones from Two Little Red Hens, and those famously speckled Doughnut Plant doughnuts, in postmodern flavors like pomegranate, pistachio and Valrhona chocolate. Chewy H&H bagels satisfy those sans sweet tooth. Mixed vegetable and Cuban panini, served all day, are simple but satisfying. Take a seat (but not for too long—there’s no public restroom) at one of Brewbar’s five marble-topped man-hole-cover-sized tables, choose a section of the day’s paper, and enjoy the mini parade.
