Grey Dog’s Coffee in Greenwich Village

October 19, 2010 by Vinessa

Greenwich Village is one of my favorite area’s in Manhattan. I recommend our guests at Ivy Terrace B&B visit
“the village” as it is called, and spend at least 1 full day walking the charming streets of one of New York’s oldest neighborhoods. While there, visit the Grey Dog’s coffee, a West Village eatery with heaps of character, chalkboard menus, and well brewed coffee. I have been a regular at the 33 Carmine Street location since it opened in 1997. This independent coffee house is a neighborhood favorite offering hearty, creative sandwiches and freshly prepared homemade soups. The food here is great, and it is always packed. Substantial muffins ( my favorite is blueberry, banana, bran), sandwiches, ranging from BLTĀ  ( bacon lettuce and tomato) to tuna melt and other choices like Cobb salad, and yummy quiche, round out the menu. Grey Dog also serves beer and wine! They are normally open ’till 11:30 pm. Okay, the music is a little on the loud side when you enter, but once you order, pay and finally take a bite of your food, the music isn’t an issue at all…. it fades into the background somehow. Waitstaff is fast and during busy hours they will ” keep it movin’ ” so to speak, but I have never had a bad experience either food or service wise in over 100 visits! I highly recommend the loose leaf teas and hazelnut coffee. While in the area also check out what is playing at the Cherry Lane Theater and be sure to visit Murray’s Cheese, 254 Bleecker Street, New York’s oldest and best cheese shop.
