Cosi Coffee is a very nice. It's located across from Bryant Park and the New York Library. They have great sandwiches. The wood baked bread is made right there in an over and it's delicious. If you go, I recommend the Blue Buffalo, which is made of chicken and is also delicious. It also has free wifi, and the waitresses are very friendly and nearly all of them speak Spanish. There is American coffee or espresso, though espresso is a little more expensive because it's more natural. A sandwich and a coffee costs about $8-9, which is very good. Americans generally take the sandwich or soup to the park across the street, but you can also sit in chairs facing the window and watch all the people passing in the streets.
This place is located just opposite the Milford Times Square hotel and it is the perfect place to eat alfresco because the hotel does not give even a bad coffee. It is also perfect to have dinner, as you simply have to cross the street and you're at the hotel. It consists of four different places, a Pizzeria, Subway, Fish and Chips and fried chicken, just choose what you want dinner that night. For breakfast you can have the delicious muffins, pancakes, orange juice and varied fruit. There is American coffee of course. For breakfast you can go for a coffee, muffin and fruit for $ 11 for two people, so this is really good.
Supposedly, this is the best cheesecake in Manhattan. Well, I went to the bakery in a Manhattan restaurant called Junior's, which had won several awards for its cheesecakes. I have to admit that the awards were well deserved. From what I have seen, I think it's a chain, and there is one on a street that crosses Times Square.
This small corner of Little Italy is a pretty authentic piece of Italy. The first time I went I met John Cha Cha who personally greeted us and told us stories about all his acting in war and mafia movies during the meal. The walls of the restaurant are lined with family photos, Hollywood stars and movie posters in which he has participated. The food was great and authentic Italian. I recommend the spaghetti and meatballs in typical style of "Lady and the Tramp", and of course, the profiteroles accompanied by a good, warm cappuccino. Definitely a "must" when you walk through Little Italy.
