With a quaint, cozy and rustic feel in the Tribeca neighborhood, Kiva Cafe sports a locavore / City Harvest-donating spot that lets you eat well while doing good.

Though the air circulation was less than perfect one Sunday visit, leaving a warm and greasy feel along the pillowed banquette, the food more than made up for it.

Farm fresh milk, yogurt, ice cream, teas, and granola are plied from local New York farms and vendors, giving way to a variety of vegan cakes and muffins temptingly on display.

Reminiscent of the tranquil artsy nabe on the San Francisco Bay, the sunflower-filled cafe sports an aptly named Sausalito sandwich, served on memorable grainy cranberry and walnut bread. The chicken Cobb salad abounds with crispy fried bacon, blue cheese and sliced avocado.

Refresh yourself with homemade fruity iced teas, beers, and wines while perusing the cafe's separate lunch / dinner menus, or "morning nourishment" offerings. Desserts are largely of the vegan kind, like the yogurt parfait loaded with fruit, or light pastries displayed along the counter.

All this healthy eating makes for great fuel for a walk on the Hudson, just a few blocks away.

Kiva Cafe is a jewel on the best Street in Tribecca! The atmosphere is lovely! I can and have sat there for hours sipping pineaple green tea, browsing through magazines and chatting with the interesting locals, many who live in the nearby townhouses and apartments. The cafe is child freindly and I love watching the children grab their mini muffins in the winter and ice cream cups in the summer. And the food is extremely good and satisfying! I give this cafe 5 stars!

Pros: Eat, drink, view art everywhere, on the walls, the plates you eat from and the jewlry in the glass table tops under your plate!
