The quiet hum of conversation fills the room. The scent of coffee percolates through the air. Some are reading, others are chatting with friends, and everyone is enjoying the flood of sunshine. That’s a typical afternoon at Ost Cafe -- and exactly the kind of atmosphere we were after when we set out to bring a taste of Vienna and old Bohemia to our beloved East Village.

From coffee and pastries to wine and cheese, we selected Ost's menu to reflect our Central European heritage and cater to local tastes (both of which we know a lot about given two of us hail from the Eastern Bloc and all of us live around the corner). Whether you’ve come to get a shot of espresso while reading the morning paper or to grab a cappuccino on your way to Tompkins Park dog run, you'll find this a welcome home away from home.

The Ost Family

P.S. In case you were wondering, Ost means East in German.
