I need to meet a friend who has an hour or two between trains. Does anyone have a recommendation for a charming place within ten blocks or so to grab a cup of coffee and a small bite? Thank you in advance--that part of town is a big blank for me.

    Stage Door Deli is actually pretty decent. If you like Greek, check out Greek Corner, a little lunch counter on 7th that has tasty Greek specials and one of the best gyros in the city.

      Also Hunan China on 5th. Serve an okay lunch & cup of tea.

        Also for Chinese in the area, check out Szechuan Gourmet on 39th btw 5th and 6th.

      Stout on 33rd between 6th and 7th Ave is a nice place to grab a bite, though they will probably talk you into having a beer rather than coffee.
