The popular Swedish café Kaffe 1668 has opened a second shop nine blocks north on Greenwich. At 1,600 square feet, it feels much larger than the original. It’s mostly long and narrow, with far more space behind the counter. The aesthetic is the same; there’s a lot of wood, from the shelves to the furniture to the floors. The floors, actually, are a holdover from when the space was Siberian Floors’ showroom; the patterns charmingly change every 10 feet or so. The big difference is that this outpost has a much more extensive food menu (along with the pastries patrons are already familiar with)—sandwiches, salads, and soups made to order, with an emphasis on healthfulness. And there are dozens of teas from Le Palais de Thés, beer, and wine. Note: It’s incredibly dark.
