  • sNice - 45 8th Ave at W4, yummy veggie food too.
  • Esperanto Cafe - 114 MacDougal Street (between W. 3rd St. & Bleecker). Cute little cafe that's open 24x7x365 and doesn't seem to mind you hanging out (book reading, essay writing, exam review) for long periods of time (at least late at night). A bit of a tight squeeze, though, plus bare-bones support for techies. (They have outlets, and they let you string a network cable for wired access, but for wireless it appears you have to use one of the random local hot spots)\
  • Ditch Plains - a bar/restaurant, has free wifi.
  • The Tea Spot - 127 MacDougal Street - great selection of teas, and snacks, not so many places to sit, though.
  • World Financial Center (Winter Garden) - Outlets are non-existent so you'll need good battery life, but the Downtown Alliance and Yushi Sushi have great free WIFI.
  • Whole Foods - 270 Greenwich St (off West St) [outlets]
  • NY Library BPC Branch - 175 North End Avenue - Free wifi, lots of seating area upstairs.  Quiet before late afternoon when the tikes come in for read/sing-alongs downstairs. [outlets]

  • Theeee Coffee Chamber (Bleecker betw. Lafayette & Bowery) (closed)
  • Think Coffee - Mercer St, below West 4th St. (Nice place, and open till midnight, but one annoyance: wifi now works for only 1 hour at a time (for a suggested donation of $1) after which you need to get another username/password - a bit of a pain.)
  • Alt.Coffee - 137 Ave A, between St. Marks and 9th Street. Note: They don't let you plug in your battery, so come fully charged. Alt.Coffee closed a few months back, and has since been resurrected as Hopscotch Cafe. Anyone know if they've got wifi?
  • 88 Orchard - 88 Orchard Street, at Broome Street. Great place to grab breakfast (try the herb omlette sandwich) and coffee (their iced coffee uses ice cubes made with coffee), and of course free wifi.
  • Sugar Cafe - 200 Allen St. (corner of Houston) Wifi, open 24 hours.
