Café Pick Me Up

145 Ave. A , at 9th St.
New York , NY , United States
(212) 673-7231

Positioned on the corner of Ave. A and East 9th St. in Alphabet City, this café is filled with mismatched chairs and makeshift tables arranged over worn wood floors. Random cupboards store mugs and serve as the coffee condiment bar, adding to the antique-shop appeal of the restaurant. Since service is a hit or miss, most locals usually get their cappuccino and a pastry like the caramelized onion and goat cheese tart to-go; however Café Pick Me Up also has a decent wine list and serves a full menu all day.
