If you spend a decent amount of time in downtown Manhattan, Think Coffee is a useful chain to know about. There are a bunch of locations, and all of them have a good amount of seating. They also all do the same food, which includes soups, salads, and some pretty good grilled cheese sandwiches. Not every location has wifi, although the one near NYU does - and it’s usually packed with students.

The Brooklyneer is most definitely a bar with food, not a restaurant with a bar. But in terms of bar food in New York City, this is some of the best around. Oh, and for all you crazy intense soccer fans out there, The Brooklyneer is the place to watch.
