Doma is a seemingly nice place to chat and have drinks with a few friends however the food was just okay and the waitresses are paradigms of poor customer service.

The restaurant is small yet the waitress took about 20 minutes to get our

I go to this neighborhood cafe once in a while, when I have a little time to kill. Its often crowded... and I cant figure out why. The food is variable, somethings are good and others are not. The drinks are made well, but the staff

.

I have gone to DOMA for years to write. The space is one of few in the city that has an old world feeling and being able to watch the morning unfold through the large windows helps with inspiration. The patrons during the week seem to largely be creatives who use the space to dine and get work done. And you have to pay your rent. Their real estate ain't cheap folks. I usually buy an entree and coffee, then a second cup of coffee and a cookie or muffin if I stay longer than an hour. The staff have never been pleasant, the nicer you are to them the more they will growl at you it seems, but they always deliver my food. So if you care what the woman behind the counter think, or how you will be treated don't go to DOMA. Oh and when you walk into DOMA, most people realize what kind of space it is, that it isn't a place where everyone in the room wants to hear about who slept with who or about your world travels or how bright your future looks. So if you don't clue into the fact that this is the vibe and don't try and keep your conversation within the confines of your group your obnoxious and deserve nasty looks. This is New York and sometimes it's nice to have a place where people congregate and there is quiet and mutual respect for what is going on around them.

Pros: Food, Coffee

Cons: Expectations that the women behind the counter care

Doma cafe is adorable and a good spot to just relax with a book or catch up a friend but I was not very impressed with the menu. The lunch portions were very small and not entirely satisfying.

Pros: Best chocolate muffins !

I just moved into the neighborhood and found the food here to be excellent. There are lots of great daily specials and the desserts are great. The atmospere is good, if you can find a seat.

However, only once have I ever felt like I was treated well by the staff (out of, probably, 8 visits). I was getting lots of to-go orders because I was busy moving in, and, like in the other reviewer mentioned, they treated me like an intrusion. I have had to interrupt a staff member (a few times) who was talking to a friend of theirs just to place my order. I have had to inquire about my food when I saw it sitting there ready to go (and getting cold). Most of the staff seem to hate their jobs (or at least the part about helping customers). I don't know if they think it's ok to be rude because they are so "hip and european" but the cafes I've been to in Europe have had far better service. Regardless, I haven't been back since I found some time to explore the area and find other places with good food and far better service.

Cons: Absolutely terrible service, very hard to get a seat.

I passed by this place many times - it was always crowded. Finally I went at 8 am and it was one of the best experiences. The coffee was good, there were all sorts of fresh pastries to chooses from. I had an omlette which was done very well. Unlike other places near by this one remained quiet even when it filled up.

I have frequented Doma over the past several years and love the vibe. I also agree with the previous positive comments regarding the food and general ambiance. After today, however, it may be a while before I return. It is a chill place, aesthetically. The staff has been fine in the past (neither here nor there). Today, however, after patiently waiting for my to-go order, the woman behind the counter treated me like an intruder when I gently approached her about its status. It was sitting in the kitchen, already paid for, and cold. The attitude that she brought to the interaction was completely unwarranted. i was totally turned-off and disappointed. She was NOT chill. -Kate, Village Resident

Pros: Food is healthy & hearty, love the ambiance, encourages good conversation or contemplation

Cons: Spotty attitudes among the staff... that's a deal breaker for me.

Doma is amazing. The atmosphere is quiet and studious but stylish all the same. The place could have been pulled out of a movie set. The music goes right along with the atmosphere. The food is a work of art - perhaps surpassing all other coffeeshop food selections in New York. You can order either coffee or wine (among other house selections). Make sure to try the cheese platters. Oh and don't go without either a book or a laptop.

Pros: Ambience, Food, Wine, Coffee, Service

Cons: No Wi-Fi directly in Doma (but can steal free from neighbors); can be crowded at times.

Doma Cafe & Gallery is so neat. It's this small cafe that makes the best coffee every. It's mostly art types, locals, writers and the freelance crowd that hangs out there. They have these huge windows that you can sit next to with your cup of coffee, look outside and watch the world go by. Really cool

This place is sooo chill. You get your beverage of choice, sit down, read a book from their shelf, or your own book and no one bothers you if you don't want. The patrons are all very nice, so if you want conversation with randoms, this is a cool place too. They have huge dog bowls with water outside, so it's a wonderful place to stop if you're out walking your pup.

PROS: Nice peep, perfect coffee shop atmosphere
CONS: none

This popular coffee house in the West Village is set at the intersection of Perry St., Waverly Pl. and Seventh Ave., but feels a world away from the bustle. The wood-clad interior makes for a lovely caffeine-induced retreat. Doma means "at…
