"I always go to the Hungarian Pastry Shop (1030 Amsterdam Ave between 110th and 111th Sts, 212-866-4230) near Columbia University. It's full of hot grad students and people writing novels, and they serve amazing hot chocolate. Afterwards you can go to Max

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

So many theses have been dreamed up, procrastinated over or tossed aside in the almost five decades of the Hungarian Pastry Shop’s existence that the Columbia University institution merits its own dissertation. In truth, the dim lighting and rickety chairs are not really conducive to grappling with Gramsci or demystifying Delillo, and you’re better off placing your order at the counter—give your name and they’ll bring it to you when it’s ready—and settling in for a coffee-fuelled schmooze with a flaneur. The java itself is strong enough to make up for the erratic array of pastries, and the Euro feel is enhanced by the view of St John the Divine cathedral from outdoor tables.
