The coffe shop, Ost, was cute and made a good mocha, but their one hour limit on internet and "no computers after 5" posted rule didn't encourage me to stay long. I walked around the area and found Tompkins Square Park, then Yelp helped me find dinner.
I ended up at Flea Market Cafe, and it was such a good choice! It was small, not crowded at all, and had delicious french food. Since I went before 7, I got the sunset menu - a glass of wine, an appetizer, and an entree for under $20. Seriously. I got baked escargot, which was in some delicious butter herb sauce, and it came with a side of the best bread - warm and fluffy on the inside, crispy but not too hard on the outside. Amazing. My entree was mussels and fries, both of which were also truly excellent (and big portions!). I left feeling just the right amount of full and perfectly content.
