    Lattes done to perfection and friendly baristas. Haven't had their pastries just yet, but am always tempted when looking at the case. It's a small shop so I wouldn't expect to park here for hours and study or write, but it's a wonderful spot to grab your coffee and go!

    As many have indicated, tiny space, and the limited seating always looks full on the weekend. Finally visited after being curious for ages, had a large mocha which was strong and flavorful and more than met my standards (most shops put too much milk so it's more like a glorified latte with chocolate syrup). Pastries didn't look super fresh when I visited, but I want to try some next time I visit. Good location, good service, always love an independent coffee place with character.

    Kuro Kuma provides some excellent, simple options for coffee and pastries near Columbia! Their coffee comes from Counterculture (always a good option), and they have a variety of pastries.
    While I was there, I had an americano and a cranberry scone; the scone was recommended by the barista, and it turned out to be a good recommendation.

    The only downside is that there's not that much indoor seating, just a few tables that can fit a couple people each. Since I had some time to kill before a meeting, I wanted to relax and read a bit, so I had some trouble finding a good place to sit. This isn't a big deal and wouldn't be a problem for someone just trying to take coffee and a pastry to go!

    Great spot to grab a coffee on the go or to sit in and study.

    Stop here most mornings before I go out to do my thang. I've only ever had the cappuccino (too good to not order!) so cant comment on the other drinks. It is in the top 3 best I've had in NYC. Partner usually gets an espresso and he likes it.

    Croissants here are amazing, too. I'd recommend the apple braid.

    Staff is lovely. I've never experienced them being rude, unpleasant, or even disconnected/dissatisfied with their job.
