Great coffee powered by La Colombe, best egg sandwich w/ Bacon in the city... especially for the price.

Not many places like The Commons exist anymore where the barista knows your name and your order- truly a neighborhood gem that always makes you smile as you walk in the door!

I love this place! The atmosphere, the music, the staff and The Food...all of it (and I've tried it all over the past year) consistently fresh, delicious and inexpensive. I love the intimacy, the warmth and when the weather is good, sitting outside as the Chelsea scene, from hipsters to three year olds, indulging in one of Arlene's Bakery goodies! with one of the best curated cup of coffee you can ask for!

I love the menu at The Commons Chelsea! Really creative and everything is so fresh. Today I had lentil soup with kale and other goodies plus a mozzarella sandwich. Very tasty.
