8. Kaffe 1668, 275 Greenwich St. (Other location at 401 Greenwich St.)
This quirky café, opened by two Swedish brothers, might seem a little out of place in TriBeCa, close to the Financial District, but it’s a welcome addition to the neighborhood. The shop’s mascot is the sheep, and its whimsical decor includes stuffed sheep and pictures of sheep on the walls. There’s a large basement that’s almost like a cave, a contrast to the bustling shop above. Along with Intelligentsia Coffee, Kaffe also serves homemade fresh pressed juices–and wine and beer at its 401 Greenwich location. Only 275 Greenwich has wi-fi, which is one of the fastest of Manhattan’s free hotspots.
