When Nick and Josh met in New York a few years ago, what they set out to create here in Manhattan, was a sanctuary in which anyone could come and enjoy some great food, great coffee and some friendly Banter.

So after finding the perfect spot at the end of 2016,  the dream of Banter has finally become a reality –  right here in the heart of Greenwich Village.

We do not take reservations as we are a walk-in only cafe. However, if there is a wait, we can take your name and number and text you when your table is ready.

    Young and health vibe brunch place. It's kind of pricey but okay with the portion size. Also the coffee taste very acidic and burnt. I ordered cappuccino and defintely not foamy enough.

    There are three things I absolutely love: good coffee, healthy food, and exploring new places. Recently, I discovered an all-day cafe with a worker-owner model, and they've just opened their third location in Murray Hill. I tried their mushrooms with feta on toast along with a latte, and it was absolutely delicious! The addition of seeds and grains gave it an extra texture that I enjoyed. The service was incredibly quick, and I snagged a lovely seat outside for some people watching. Overall, it was a fantastic experience!

    My visit to Banter was a pleasant experience. The server was very friendly and attentive. However, when it came to the food, there were a few aspects that could be improved. We ordered the falafel bowl and the mushroom toast. The falafel bowl consisted of a medley of vegetables, sauces, and falafel. While the concept was promising, the falafel’s texture was a bit too soft, which affected the overall flavor negatively. On the other hand, the mushroom toast was somewhat better in my opinion. The mushrooms were cooked to perfection, and the addition of feta cheese complemented the taste quite nicely. However, the addition of sunflower seeds was a bit puzzling, and there was also an excessive amount of lemon juice, which overwhelmed the dish. Additionally, the toast was slightly overtoasted. In summary, the dishes at Banter had potential, but they seemed to lack some finishing touches that could have elevated the dining experience.

    It's a good place, pricey for what you get. Please check your receipt once you get it. They will add $2.50 because the machine wasn't updated. There is no correlation between prices indicated in the Menu and your check. Quantities are not what you'd expect. It has healthy options for sure however 1/3 more would be great. Even if you can't finish, you can always get it to go. Service is good just a little bit too fast and pushy. Coming from Europe I don't like to be rushed that way. There must be a balance. Just look at how small the portions are.
