This place is Horrible! Save your time and Money! 12/29/2011

This place is absolutely distasteful. A group of my friends, 5 of us went here for a night out to smoke some hookah. I've done this plenty of times, but my friend wanted to try this place he often came to. First off all the waiter was rude, couldn't really explain much to us about what the Viagra hookah was. The hookah was decent but the prices were highway robbery. We bought 2 hookahs for the five of us, which was fine, that total came up to $50, then 5 waters, what place charges $4 for waters??!?! That's absolutely dreadful, and we're not even at a baseball stadium to justify a typical $1 bottle of Poland spring water that was not cold. So far our bill total is 70, then the additional taxes which was $7, and a service charge of $14, with a grand total of $91. Why were we charged $108?!??! I think they thought because we were college students we wouldn't look at the bill? But this place is absolutely a rip off with how expensive everything is. I would not recommend it, not at all, not ever! Not ever again! Save your time and money! It's not worth for what you're paying. Check out a real hookah bar Fayrooz Cafe in Astoria or ANY other hookah bars around the area. Also the seats were not cozy who has benches with small pillows? Talk about back pains after leaving. more

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE at Cozy Cafe SMH!! 11/19/2011

Terrible place would NEVER go there again, First off friends came with me to hang out and enjoy the night, The rules are you HAVE to purchase another hookah even if nobody else is going to smoke SMFH!!!!!! I felt after we were being rushed out at that as well! WIll never recommend this place to anybody, Hope they close down, BAD experience and I saw others leaving as well cause of this.....Please I hope anyone reading this will never chose this dredful location! more

Great Place to Chill 9/6/2011

This is really the place to go when you're just looking for a good night with friends sitting around a Hookah chilling. Nothing more relaxing, and I do it a lot. And this is definitely one of the top places in the city to go. Make sure to bring some friends, and you'll have a night to look back on for a while. more

The worst in the city!!! 4/22/2011

RUDE RUDE RUDE....bad management. Will never go into that establishment ever again. Bottom line...they are all about the money and really don't give a damn about anything else. Total pricks... more

Best Hookah Lounge in the city 1/23/2011

Before going to cozy, I have decided to go over the reviews on city search. I have heard so many good things about cozy cafe for a few years, but never got the chance to go. So, despite the few negative reviews I have decided to go there and try it out. I went there last Saturday with a group of 12 people. Saturday at cozy is very busy and fun. One of the owners, the woman, took care of our group. She treated us very nice. She gave us a very good service and didn't rush us anywhere. We have stayed there for about 2 hours. We ordered a few of the viagara hookahs, and Stella's specials, drinks and deserts. The bill came out to be fair for everything that we ordered for 12 people. There was a belly dancer there at the time that we were there, and it was so much fun. My friends and I have enjoyed our experience at cozy cafe, and we'll definitely go there again soon. I highly recommend going there to experience the cozy and fun atmosphere at cozy cafe. more

After 5 years, I'll never support this place again. 1/15/2011

Cozy's is a good hookah place if you don't know any better. Once upon a time, they were a customer oriented, friendly establishment. But soon, in part bc of super young kids [people who are are clearly 16,etc.] and maybe local students?, Cozy changed its ways. It's uptight, unfriendly mom-ager [the owners wife?] is there constantly, literally policing everyone adn every action. They changed their policies from however many hookahs you want, for however long you wanted to stay, to however large you wanted your group to 2 hookahs/couple [I mean... 4 people are in no way gonna need TWO hookahs between them-- thats rather excessive], to time limits and being rushed, etc. I once even made them refund part of my bill for rushing me and my friends out. I'd been going to Cozy for over 5 years and even established a bit of repoire with them but will never support them again. There are a TON of equally as great, cheap places on the same street [all up and down 1st avenue/LES/alphabet city ] who will treat customers with respect and appreciation. It's sad to see a fun, small, family owned establishment turn into a monster. Popularity really go to this place's head. It's no longer fun. Save yourself the trouble and head to Karma around the corner or Babe's or Horu's ... really. more

Cozy Cafe 12/26/2010

If you are passing through the city for sometime or you live in the city, Cozy Cafe is a stop you will never forget. The atmosphere is up-beat but relaxing. Music is diverse, up-to-date and never stops. If your looking for a nice stress free time Cozy Cafe is where you would go. A diamond in the rough, memories you will never forget. The hookahs are one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to stumble upon. I would recommend ordering White Grape with Blueberry. The food is great! I would suggest ordering the chicken with cheese wrap. more

DON'T GO 10/20/2010

Dont go here, they are over priced and charged us 50 bucks to use the hookah for 30 mins and made us buy water for each of us and charged us 4 dollars. STELLA is not nice person,she is the owner or main staffed person, stay away from this,., I would recommed Leseuk harem in west village ( 5 stars to this place) worth every dime, more

nice hookah bar 7/26/2010

We went there last Saturday for the first time and were quite impressed with the service. My friends and I prefer crowded places to hangout, so it was definitely a good choice. For those of you who don't like crowded places they have a beautiful back room (moroccan room) for chilly evenings. The staff was very friendly. The DJ even played our favorite songs from our ipod. We were invited to come back on a weekday for a free hookah. Weekdays there are considered to be Monday through Thursday more

Never again 7/15/2010

Waiters are rude. They kicked me n my friends out because we didn't want to order more drinks they over charged us. They charge tax and service fees. WTF boring place actually. Don't go here and waste your time and $ more

Cozy Cafe is the Best Hookah Lounge in NYC 6/22/2010

Cozy Cafe is one of the chillest loungest in Nyc. The name Cozy fits the Lounge perfectly because of its relaxing, low light, and warming atmosphere. The service is good and the staff is very attentive. The prices are very affordale and they range anything from 15 dollars for a hookah; which taste amazing, by far the best Hookah I have ever smoked. SO if youre ever near 1st street and 2nd Ave make sure t stop in for a Visit :) more

The place is okay :( 3/8/2010

Went there last nite with a couple of friends. Its very tight and small, the host was nice but that's about it. The server we had was very very rude! He only seem to be nice towards the white ppl. Don't be upset about what I just wrote but its true. But besides that, the hookah was great! It had me forget all about the rude waiter. The music was cool, it was a mix of different things. Nd the ppl were great, nice and relax. Besides everything I would go back for the cheap hookah nd chicken wrap. P.S they do check ID and they only sell beer or wine that's it. more

Cozy Up At Cozys 12/10/2009

Cozy cafe is exactly what the name says, the cozy little gem hidden away on 1st Lower East Side. Cozy has every thing you could desire. Excellent food a great wine and beer selection and hookah that will have you coming back day after day. The key beauty in cozy cafe is the staff they are always playing the hippest music , suggesting the best hookahs, and keeping the atmosphere entertaining and relaxing. The variety of hookah at cozy cafe creates near endless new flavors to try that go with its excellent environment. You can make your cozy experience unique to you just by calling ahead and reserving a spot for you and your friends. Or you can just head over there and enjoy a hookah in the company of cool people, great music, and an experience that you will be talking for a long while. Pros: Resonable prices, excellent atmosphere Cons: That you can't take it home! more

best place to chill out 9/24/2009

If you are in the mood to have a fun, chilled out night, this place is ideal during the week. It becomes more lively on the weekends, however it is still a lot of fun. more

DO NOT GO!!!! 9/21/2009

Crazy expensive and they FORCE you to order. Some hookahs were like 30bucks, and make sure you check your billl...they tack on extra fees and items!!!!! I came here with about 20 friends on a Friday night, they forced me to order stuff that I really didn't even want..... After that they kept sneakily picking up hookahs while we were still smoking and rushing us out!!! At the end of the night, our bill came out to be about 620 dollars but the service was HORRIBLE...they literally kicked us out despite ordering so much! Pros: Location Cons: They will pickup the hookah while your smoking! more

Good prices! Great hookah and delicious food! 8/28/2009

I LOVE Cozy Cafe! The staff is super friendly and always have good suggestions for the hookah flavors. I highly recommend you try it out. Besides the great hookah, Cozy has great food. I highly recommend the kofta and the lamb. And the hummus is unusually good. Also, I really like the sangria. It doesn't taste just like pure juice; you can actually taste the wine in it. Cozy Cafe always has a great crowd, no matter what night of the week it is and there's also a outdoor patio in the back which is great when the weather is nice. Fun place to go if you are a local or just visiting the city. And the prices (food, drink and hookah) are very reasonable. Pros: Service, Inexpensive, Food Cons: none more

Owner Message

  • It doesn't get much cozier than this. A heated all season back yard patio and a richly decored Middle Eastern themed bar of plush sofas, 69 different varieties of tobacco flavored with fresh fruit juice, and weekend belly dancing action! A large projector shows Middle Eastern images while world beats play until the early hours.

    Arabian nights have never been cozier at this tiny nook, it's filled to the brim with oversized cushions that beg to be lounged on. Nestle around one of the undersized tables and share a hookah, entree, or desserts from Cozy's menu, while a guitar and drum in the backroom encourage spontaneous dancing. Though the waiters can tell you about the healing properties of each of their exotic teas, you can always self medicate with beer and wine instead. Try tempting mixes like Viagra, Orgasm, & "Knock me out" to make your night or celebration an amazing experience.


  • Egyptian hookah den below street level features nooks draped in fabrics, over 20 tobacco flavors and an outdoor patio.
