Any good places in the village or east village for a first date? Good coffee or tea and drinks as well (maybe food also?) Thanks..

    Les Deux Gamins on W. 10th near 7th Ave. would work as would French Roast on 6th Ave.

      I suggest Ametller 35 Christopher Street in the heart of the village...excellent food and charming cafe atmosphere...it is BYOB and Cash only...but wonderful...phone number 212-987-0701..had late breakfast there on Monday...fresh and delicious!

        Cafe Angelique on Grove would be perfect, I think. Good coffee and interesting tea selection. I haven't had their food, but the pastries always look great and they also have a menu with soups, sandwiches, salads and the like. As suggested above, Ameteller is nice as well, but service can be a little spotty.

          I always think Tea Adore would be a great first date place. Its a little French tea place on 13th between fifth and University. They do not have alchohal but the space (upstairs) has a cute causual county atmosphere. they have good simple soups and sandwiches and if its not crowded you can linger for a long time. But they do close at 6.

          I did go on a first date once at Mud Hut on East 9th. Also mellow, a bit hipster, but good coffee, food and they searce funky beers.
