I had a meeting in this area, so I was trying to kill time with my laptop, and, thanks god, I found a place with a free wireless internet! Smiling beauty made me the most handsome latte I've ever had, and the cozy environment was like a piece of heaven for that rainy day. I have nothing to add, I would definitely go back. :)
nothing to go out of your way for

I went on Valentine's Day and ordered hot cocoa and a slice of decadent-looking chocolate raspberry cake. The hot cocoa was not rich--your basic milky sweet stuff--and the cake was a little dry, and a little too reminiscent of grocery-aisle snack cakes. If you like your chocolate intense (and hot cocoa that goes down like straight-up molten chocolate), try the Chocolate Room on 5th Ave.
Heaven in a dark wood box

It's kind of what Starbucks is trying to be and failing: a beautiful, soothing, pristine temple to the gods of rich chocolatey goodness where you can sit for hours and never tire of the surroundings. Service ranges from the attentive to the completely inattentive to the hysterically funny (I swear I saw a server attempting to make my peppermint hot cocoa by what appeared to be painstakingly melting Andes bars, one by one, in a jet of boiling water) but if you have the patience to get in there and just sip at your cup of chocolate-flavored tea or whatever, I promise your blood pressure will drop 10 points. So, so much better than its rival the Chocolate Bar on 5th Ave --- unless you are on a date or bringing friends and it's more important that the service and logistics flow smoothly than that the food be really good.
