Oldest Coffee House in West Village: Caffe Reggio

Featured as in the classic New York movies like The Godfather and Serpico, the Village's oldest coffee house (since 1927) has harbored free spritied artists for decades, most notably beat generation poets like Kerouac and Corso. According to NY Mag, "The spot is also storied to have introduced cappuccino to New York when the original owner spent a then ungodly $1,000 to import an espresso machine (the chrome and bronze beauty still on display) from Italy".
