We were treated very badly by a male staff. He was so rude that we ordered only a round of drinks and left. I wonder why service in NY is bad in general. This is place in particular is the worst I've ever been.

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the

Beloved by the community since its inception, Once Upon a Tart is a bakery, coffee shop, cozy neighborhood restaurant, and caterer spread between two historic storefronts on Sullivan Street in New York City. One storefront holds all of our classic baked goods and a coffee shop. The other side is a full-service restaurant with home-style cooking in a casual setting.
