Since it’s got a completely glass exterior, this Israeli-owned café reveals the nutty goings-on of MacDougal Street around the clock. Looking from the outside in, however, you’ll see an appropriately Boho Greenwich Village aesthetic: a dilapidated sofa, chandeliers with naked bulbs, an upright piano, and chalkboards. While a telephone booth functions as a computer terminal, many patrons, whether in dreads, chunky knit scarves, or fedoras, bring their own. (The regular fizzing of the espresso maker and clinking of dishware testify to their caffeine-fueled output.) There’s heartier fare, too. Oozy brie lends sweetness to the turkey Dijon panino; pizzas, tossed at The Pizzeria across the street, are best when topped by fiery pepperoni. Esperanto starts whipping up eggs and pancakes by 7 a.m. daily. Whether you get up that early has to do with your ability to meet your ideal. Something the language of Esperanto never did.Recommended Dishes
