The local people are especially fond of this place and if you want to stop and relax, then this is your place.

This is probably the cosiest cafe in the East Village which serves the best cup of coffee. Their espresso is the best of all.

Abraco uses the coffee beans bought from South America and roasts them on site. In addition to coffee, they also serve delicious bakery goods in small plates and even cocktails. The homemade olive-oil cake is highly recommended.
