The Coffee Shop Restaurant Review

: With two large bars, lots of '50s Formica and leatherette, and no shortage of models and poseurs, this Union Square destination is a coffee shop with attitude. Lots of it to be precise --- mostly from the model-lite waitstaff. The menu has a loose Brazilian theme and features such dishes as coconut-crisped shrimp, baked chicken wings in chili-lime sauce, and fish stew, all until the wee hours. Breakfast also lasts all day.
