Cafes with wi-fi access?

  • t

Are there any cafes, preferably below 14th, with wireless internet access and decent coffee and chow? I've heard rumors that a certain chain from Seattle offers such service--for a price--but i prefer to avoid that route.

  1. This is nowhere near the area you suggested, but I believe that DTUT, on the UES offers free wireless. The last time I was in there (a few months ago) they had a jar on the table asking for dollar donations for the internet. A dollar for a few hours of access seems pretty fair to me.

    1. Haven't actually tried out the food or coffee, but the Dean&Deluca cafe in the Borders at 100 Broadway (*way* below 14th) does have wireless access, and for free I believe.

      1. I think Chelsea Market has free wi-fi access throughout the building. Not below 14th, but just barely above it!

        1. on 9th & A in the East Village has free wireless internet access and an interesting crowd. I can only vouch for the Cafe au Lait, haven't had their pastries. It's right next to Tompkins Square Park which also has free wireless access (along with Union Square)

            Bryant Park has free wireless access, too.
