A sorely missed Ukrainian coffee shop, formerly located on the corner of 2nd Avenue and 7th Street in Manhattan's East Village. Before it closed its doors sometime in November 2000, it was an excellent place to stop in for slightly surly service and yummy challah French toast at any time of the day or night. I spent long afternoons there while cutting class in my first semester of college, reading zines from See Hear and nursing bottomless cups of coffee.
