Is there a GOOD cozy Cafe (coffee and tea, not fancy restaurant) Uptown near Columbus Circle?

Hi. I am coming to NYC for a week. I am looking for a arm, cozy cafe, (like a coffee and tea place, as opposed to a cafe that is really restaurant) that has wireless, that is near 7TH and 59th.

I am one block from the Time Warner Building, and Columbus circle.

Any ideas?

  1. There are a number of Starbucks and Starbuck-like places around there - but if it were me I'd go to the Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center. Buy one of their fabulous croissants and a cappucino, espresso or cafe americain and enjjoy.

      I second that- evertything is worth the calories.

        I also love Bouchon (wonderful lemon meringue cupcakes!), but it looks as if the OP also seeks wireless access. I don't believe Bouchon offers this, does it?

        I remember that place! It is on the same floor as a big theater where the IIN meets golds graduate ceremonies.
        my only reservation: do they have wireless? (spolied web head here)
