Cafe O

And another coffee shop opens in the Village.  Joe Jr. which was located on the 12th and Sixth closed a while ago.  It was always depressing walking by and seeing a completely empty place where a neighborhood diner reigned for so many years but low and behold, Cafe O opened this week in its place. 

A super cute coffee shop.  Love the vibe and look.  The stools could be cut down about 3 or more inches but otherwise, I like it. 

Had the Latte Bahia, my way.  A capuccino with six pieces of dark chocolate.  I went with skim milk and narrowed the chocolate down to 3 slices.  It was my coffee partners idea.  I asked her…why is it that Jewish people love to change what is on the menu?  Can I have dressing on the side?  Can they take out the cheese?  Can I not do bread and and put that on greens?  Can I subsitute?  Perhaps it is just comes with our DNA.

Anyway, Cafe O…nice addition to the neighborhood.

    laughing – tall stools drive me crazy (barely 5′)…and with order changing, my husband says I screw up the whole tables orders because the waiter/chef are so confused by my changes. Oh well. I like your way better.

    Presentation of the coffee was beautiful with the exception of the piece of glass or ceramic that got lodged in my throat..leaving me out of breath and having to leave via an ambulance to the emergency room.
