If you spend a decent amount of time in downtown Manhattan, Think Coffee is a useful chain to know about. There are a bunch of locations, and all of them have a good amount of seating. They also all do the same food, which includes soups, salads, and some pretty good grilled cheese sandwiches. Not every location has wifi, although the one near NYU does - and it’s usually packed with students.
