Banter is an Australian coffee shop/cafe in Greenwich Village, and it’s objectively a very good-looking space. Think of it as Two Hands, but a little more polished. Although that doesn’t mean it’s fancy. It’s casual - a place to stop in and get lunch when you want to hear a few Australian accents. They do breakfast all day, and they have some toasts and bowls of vegetables (including one with soba noodles) if you’re trying to get some vitamins. And if you don’t feel like eating, hang out and have a latte. Or a bloody Mary. (They have a full liquor license.)
