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.

Sticky's Finger Joint
We’ve got to admit that even though we aren’t the target audience for Sticky's Finger Joint, we kind of love this place. It's basically stoner food at it’s best and most ridiculous, with a menu filled with genius chicken finger flavor creations.
Head spinning after a long day of getting dragged around Soho with the female? Find salvation in a crisp Blue Point Toasted Lager draft and steak frites at Jane. It’ll help restore the equilibrium. The predecessor to fratty East Village favorite, The Smith, Jane is its slightly more sophisticated older sister.
