I spent a week in New York, and I ate here four times. It's nothing fancy, but the food is consistently great, the staff are very friendly and helpful (my experiences were much, much different than the other reviewer's) and I like the space. It's a nice little cafe with no pretension. It's laid back and a nice place to chat over a meal or to read if by yourself. I love all of the natural light, too. The Sag breakfast sandwich (scrambled tofu, sausage (or tempeh, I had both) and daiya cheddar on a kaiser roll. Wow, I loved it (and had it twice). I also enjoyed the Reuben and the hummus. I had the pleasure of stopping in for Sunday brunch, and devoured the tofu benny. Their coffee drinks and chai were also nice. I didn't get a chance to try the Polish sausage sandwich, but saw someone else enjoying it, and I look forward to ordering that on my next trip. I typically don't give five happy cows to a non-100% vegan establishment, but I'm going to make an exception here because I enjoyed my time at Boneshakers so much.
