The Grey Dog's Coffee

If your idea of comfort is diving into a hearty sandwich while listening to Supertramp amid a forgiving background din, then this cafe is for you. Add in a glass of crisp white wine and cookies the size of your head, and you may never want to leave. The joint plies picky eaters with turkey and brie melts, PB& J, juicy burgers and transcendent fries.

I love this easy going laid back establishment. It's one of those places you can always count on because it has got you covered for just about any situation. Casual dinner date? There’s dim lighting here to set the mood and comfort food to keep you both nice and cozy. Just grab a drink date? There's a selection of beer, wine and even seasonal sangria. Catch up date with your bestie? You can feel free to linger here a bit over coffee and pastries. Solo date? Staff here has always been pleasant and welcoming here. All this at affordable prices! Grey Dog has a handful of locations throughout the city (mostly downtown).

A staple in the Chelsea neighborhood! If you're looking for a casual hang out and a local favorite, The Grey Dog is perfect. They serve breakfast until 3 PM every day, have a variety of food from tacos to flatbreads to soups and chili, and they serve wine and beer. It's a cozy spot that's perfect to take family, friends, or a date to. The only downfall of The Grey Dog is the mass chaos that ensues every weekend from 10:30 AM - 3 PM. The place is mobbed for their breakfast, which is really great, but not the most amazing breakfast I've ever had. Expect to wait quite a while if you go during these hours. I've sen lines wrap around the restaurant and out the door. I recommend the baja fish tacos, chicken melt sandwich, and mac & cheese!

Grey dog is a neighborhood staple! It's exactly the type of awesome joint you see in rom-coms about New York - some cozy, crowded gang of regulars. This place has everything. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, baked goods, coffee - the works. I've been twice in the past week (yes, it's that good). The first time, we split the turkey sour apple brie sandwich (WOW) and the herb goat cheese sandwich w/ grilled chicken added. I'm a huge sucker for cheese obviously. The herb goat cheese sandwich definitely didn't need chicken added, the flavor of the cheese really held its own. All sandwiches come w/ a side order of chips. During our second visit, I got the grilled cheese on challah and I'm still thinking about it. He got the salmon toastas which are like little pieces of grainy bread with lox on top. Presentation was great and he enjoyed it but would've opted for a less healthy bread. *sigh* Men. I will say if this was a place you could order from your table it might make it more enjoyable and less stressful on the staff but it would loose so much of the casual vibe which is really fun and different. Basically you walk in and get in line and eventually the host will ask how many people you're with and reserve a table with a bandanna for you. Then you just like find whatever table he/she saved for you and wait for your food to be brought out. Overall though, great spot w/ great food!
