Iconic Cafe is now serving coffee on Lafayette Street in the trendy SoHo neighborhood.
Inspired by the Indian God Krishna and his lover Radha, Iconic Cafe is a contemporary reflection of a timeless love story.
Our journey started with the discovery of a beautiful picture of Krishna and Radha under the moonlight at the demolition site. Our inspiration was the derivative force behind the design concept of the cafe. The result is a well calibrated blend of modern geometry, exposed century-old wood joists, wax finished white oak paneling and amazing artisanal tiles,that will take you to a multi-cultural consciousness in your digitized coffee break.
