Food & Drink recommendations straight from the East Village, New York City

After spending a lot of time going to 9th Street Espresso for my daily coffee, I’ve decided that Paradiso (105 Avenue B at 7th Street) is a much better option.  Open since Feb. 2009 it’s a small space (formerly Bang-On) with a few seats & tables, but it is generally never crowded & offers free Wi-Fi.  The husband & wife team there are quite possibly the nicest people you’ll ever meet.

The coffee here (not sure what type of beans they use) is good and a bargain at $1.50-$2.  A large cappuccino will run you $2.75.  There is a wide selection of cookies & pastries as well as sandwiches & Salads.  I’m a real fan of the Asiago & Prosciutto sandwich which is out of this world.  The Caesar Salad here is also pretty damn amazing.

The main attraction here is the Tiramisu which they make in house.  Ranging in flavors from the Classico to apple raisin to strawberry, these seem to be a real hit.  Unfortunately, I haven’t tried any yet.  I really like the laid back attitude here, check Paradiso out if you get a chance!

    […] enough to comp us coffee & dessert.  The tiramisu was delicious, possibly only rivaled by Paradiso.  We were stuffed by now, but it was way too good to pass […]
