nice with a major flaw

potentially a very nice place, but they ruin it by playing their stereo system at intolerable levels. Imagine a crowded room of people yelling at each other in order to heard over the driving bass... Not at all recommended for conversation.

Exactly What I Wanted in a Coffeehouse

It took me months to finally find a coffe shop with the atmosphere I was looking for. The coffee is not great (still better than Starbucks and day), but I just love the people there (customers and staff). It is usually really loud, which is great for drowning out the chatter so as to focus on work, but not so great for a date. Oh, and you must have a Green Tea Lemon Cookie!!!

not impressed

I had a terrible experience at 71 Irving The staff was rude, the place was overcrowded, and when I got my tea is was cold. My advice is to skip this spot and head over to The Tea Set, which in the West Village just west of Greenwich Ave. BuywithmeNYC has a great deal going on with The Tea Set you pay just $15 and get $30 worth of food/drinks, making it the perfect time to try out their great variety of organic teas! If you're not into teas, they have a great selection of champagnes, to...view moreo. You can learn more about the deal here: htt://bit.ly/b5pi8b‎. Enjoy!! =)view less

Rude staff, inconsistent coffee

The staff is very rude and they rarely even look you in the eye. The coffee is very harsh and inconsistent. One time I asked the chubby faced face girl why the coffee was cold. She replied ""because you have milk in it"" Duh....a little milk should not make the coffee cold.
On many occasions I have had cold coffee. Why do I go? Because all the coffee places in the area have shut down. Tisserie, Barroco...

Bagels are decent and so are the pastries.

Great coffee. Charming Place.

This is my go-to place. Meeting friends, after-dinner coffee, need to catch up on some work, Sunday brunch. Best coffee around. Always consistent. Good food: sandwiches, salads, yogurt, bagels, pastries. I highly recommend.

Best Coffee in NYC

I live in the area and I keep returning to 71, although I can get coffee at Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or the local Food Emporium. What makes this place outstanding is their coffee. period. Once you have a sip you will understand. Often the staff do have attitude, but I think when the manager is there like yesterday they were on their best behavior. ok, back to the coffee--the house coffee bursts in your mouth with layers of body and a beautiful aroma. It is also not overly strong like S...view moretarbucks. The sinful delight tastes like there is melted chocolate in it, although there is no syrup. The coffee beans are also locally (Hudson Valley) roasted and hand blended daily. I feel the scene is full of NYU students in graduate programs, professors and local businesspeople which make it fun to hang out. it is also away from the masses of union square. I often go there to relax, read a bit, meet a friend, people watch. All and all a great little hideaway.view less

good coffee- miserable service

i live in the area and frequent the coffee shop (almost) daily. Although the coffee/drinks are consistent and good, most of the 71 Irving employees are so incredibly miserable. Look, there are 2 employees that I can think of that are actually pleasant/helpful, but most of the employees have a massive chip on their shoulder. It's like they forget they're in the service industry. If you hate your job (or deem yourself too worthy to be in the job you're in), please go do something els...view moree with your life... why should customers (paying a LOT of money for coffee and over-priced carbs) have to put up with your perpetually nasty attitude? Really, a lot of the women who work there are seriously mean... it's almost comical!view less

Count your change!

Let me start by saying I've been going to 71 Irving for years now... And always love it because it's a wonderful neighborhood joint.\r
\r
However, more than 5 times, I've been given the wrong change---missing anywhere from a quarter to a $5 bill. The first few times I thought it could've been a mistake. However, now I'm convinced that it isn't.

Rude staff

This place has potential, unfortunately the rude staff ruines every visit. I live in the area and have tried it out many times and it's not an outlier experience. Every visit is the same. I wish they would change and tone down the attitude and I would come there every day, not once a quarter as now is the case. I doubt they will though considering that the place is always packed.

Tell you what

The coffee is good, I should know cause I'm really picky about coffee. The staff is rude, I should know because I'm a member of the staff and they are rude to me. I'll smile when you come in though.\r

Oh PS the chicken salad is really good and made fresh\r
