Cornelia Street Cafe has had ecstatic food, expert drink choices and uncategorized art since 1977. A Launchpad for Suzanne Vega, The Vagina Monologues & innumerable others, Cornelia Street has been a mainstay hub of the Old Village since 1977. We offer 35 wines by the glass and 700 shows a year. A fine glass of wine and a finer meal is never far out of reach.
