Coffee Nazi in Italian bicycle cap!
By goodkid on 7/7/2011
There's something truly pathetic about a 40-year-old virgin who rides his skateboard to work and gives so much B.S. to customers who ask for something less than "pure" at the Chelsea cafe. Recently went on a first date with someone who asked for a little less ice in the iced coffee because she just had dental work. The Nazi barista in the bicycle cap snarled about her request. She said "excuse me?" He said, "Oh, we serve ice in our iced drinks." What a snitty bastard. Yes we all love to have a date fir the Grumpy's standard for how to drink your coffee. He muttered something bout how Americans don't know how to order coffee. BTW he was American, she Italian. REALLY UNPLEASANT--reminded me of the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld, without the humor. If you have a special request thats not "correct" make sure to bring a doctor's note.

Everything you'd want from a coffeeshop. After one visit I plan on being a regular. Cozy interior, friendly vibe, real mugs. Just be advised: according to the sign this is a no laptop coffeeshop, so if you intend to get some work done, bring the old-fashioned paper kind.
