Caffe Dante, Greenwich Village, Manhattan
Caffe Dante opened in 1915. At the time the neighborhood was mostly Italian and it was a meeting place for Italian immigrants where they could feel like they were at home. Recently it was bought by a New York based Australian family while staying true to the heritage of the cafe. Caffe Dante is a registered New York City Historic landmark. People who have been known to frequent it in the past include Al Pacino, Ernest Hemingway, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan and many more. I haven't been there in a few years though I'm due for a visit sometime soon.
