5C in the East Village is a very sparse little organic cafe run by this amazing old couple, who are also jazz musicians and teachers. They have concerts and classes here at night. Its just got a really amazing vibe. I discovered it when I was caught in the rain with a bunch of friends on a Saturday. We ducked into 5C, who pretty much opened back up just for us after closing, and they fed us food and soup while we talked to them. That's just very rare in New York City.
