The best café in New York
— Doring Kindersley Eyewitness Travel Guide
One of the few cafes with a real fireplace and authentic fin-de-siècle Vienna coffeehouse atmosphere.
— Michelin Green Guide: New York City
The scene was as restorative as a country parlor: marble tables, a flaming hearth, classical music, an espresso bar and pastry displays. Most of the vaguely bohemian-looking clientele — people even read there — come for one of the assorted coffees.
— The New York Times
The Village of the ‘60s lives again in this quaint coffeehouse where you can sit for hours by the fire with a book, coffee and sinful dessert.
— Zagat
Dawdle through a balmy spring afternoon or warm up next to the fireplace on a blustery autumn evening... At night, Vivaldi’s alter ego as a convivial bar emerges.
— Time Out New York
Calm and almost austere, Caffe Vivaldi is the place to go to enjoy a wide selection of coffees either by yourself or with that special someone.
