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.

    A small, popular cozy café serving locals & visitors alike, health conscious Australian inspired dishes that are bound to please ... for those who love that type of food. I loved their lemon apple ginger beverage called Fresh Start Juice, and their Falafel Bowl was really nice! 👍👍 There is both indoor & outdoor seating, and the service was prompt, polite ... and friendly. 👍

    After knowing they are doing $1 pastry promotion in March. We decided to give it a try for a brunch, since we loved their pastries which are supplied by Balthazar. It was a pretty good experience, friendly staffs and easy to get our table for two without wait. I would rate them a 5 star for a brunch experience, if they could have had free refill coffee…well, just like any other local diners. Lastly, restroom’s hygiene is to be improved.

    Came here for a quick bite and it was good. All the sourdough items were over so could not order my fav but my secondary options did not disappoint

    I had a truly disappointing experience at this brunch spot. First of all, the service was shockingly rude. We were practically pushed out into the pouring rain without even a moment's grace to wait for our cab under cover. To make matters worse, they had the audacity to suggest a minimum tip of 20%, which I found ridiculous given the quality of service we received. The seating was incredibly cramped, making it uncomfortable to enjoy our meal. As for the coffee, it was over-extracted, resulting in a bitter, undrinkable brew. Latte art was good. Food was nothing more than mediocre. Given the low quality of coffee, giving 2 stars, otherwise 3 stars. Save yourself the trouble and explore other dining options nearby; there are plenty of better choices in the area.

    Hot neighborhood brunch spot, no reservation, all party must be there to be seated, long wait. Good cocktail, ok food for hangovers.
