What are the best quiet (i.e. non-music-playing) coffee shops in New York? By best I mean with both great coffee and comfortable space to work.

In the west village, Grounded on Jane street is nice and quiet. Lots of folks bring their laptops and work there. Good coffee too.

I like Birch Coffee on 27th St, which is attached to the Gershwin Hotel. The coffee shop itself is usually fairly packed with people, but the hotel has a very large, spacious, funky, quiet lobby full of old couches which is usually pretty empty, and you can totally bring your coffee in there and camp out.

If you don't mind Columbia grad students, the Hungarian Pastry Shop is a great place - delicious, bottomless coffee and no music.
