Soho Tea and Coffee

March 2004

Open until 5 AM on weekends, this funky coffeehouse, where works by local artists decorate yellow walls, hosts lots of espresso-buzzed students plugged into the Internet and taking study breaks. Try the $4.50 chicken-salad wrap or the $6.50 threesome plate–chicken salad, tuna salad, and pesto pasta. Wash it down with a coconut-and-banana Bahama Mama Latte for $4.25 or a peach smoothie for $3.95.

Don't leave without visiting the unisex restroom–it's the door with Rosie the Riveter–where you'll find newspaper and magazine clippings, and even someone's homework, plastered floor to ceiling. Bring cash: Credit cards aren't accepted, and the ATM fee is $3.
