About Kaffe 1668

Swedish twins Mikael and Tomas Tjarnberg opened the first Kaffee 1688 on Greenwich Street some five years agoaonthe name refers to the year in which, supposedly, coffee replaced beer as New Yorker's breakfast beverage of choiceaonand the stylish, cozy, buzzy spot has been such a hit that last fall the Tjarnbergs opened a second, larger Kaffe just a few blocks uptown. The coffee here is terrific, with a variety of single-origin, individually brewed cups competing for your attention with several types of espresso.
