Cafe Regular Update
So, I made a pit stop at the recently-opened East Village outpost of Brooklyn's Cafe Regular. Same beans, same milk, I'm assuming the same machine, but not the same taste. The cappuccino was too milky. This leads me to believe that it often comes down to who's making it. Might be time for the good folks at Cafe Regular to do some quality control.
Yes, it's in the lobby of a theatre which helps to explain why the space is bare, cold and feels more like a concession stand than a cafe.
I'll still be sticking to the one in Brooklyn.
