Nice place, wifi, good coffee and interesting super spicy chai tea. If you want to work, it's a good possibility.

Visited to get my coffee fix with the family. Coffees, hot chocolates, and tea were all very good. Busy place, friendly staff, and comfortable. Will be returning.

The very few gems of princeton. Not cheap, but i support the local business as well as GOOD coffee. And sometimes Lillipies baked goods. Staff are ultra friendly and very accommodating, know what they r doing! I like the small-small near me. Calmer and cozier space. Their art show also supports local artists and i've purchased some.

This Small World Cafe on Witherspoon Street is one of two in Princeton. It is the bigger one and the most centrally located one and the one where I go most often. It is large enough to go to meet a few friends, have coffee and a pastry and do studying or working on your laptop in a pleasant atmosphere. The WIFI is good. The various coffees are perfectly brewed, always piping hot and are the best in Princeton, many people think.

The second and smaller Small World Cafe is at 254 Nassau Street. That's the one I go to when I want to sit outdoors. It is opposite the Post Office; so combining those errands is perfect. There is little space in this cafe for sitting indoors.

I have discovered that maybe the best thing to go with coffee is their apple cake. It has real pieces of apple and is great. Their breakfast is served on a paper plate, but tastes good anyway.

Although it is primarily self-service, I have occasionally been at a table and the food was brought to me by pleasant efficient servers. Both places often have a line, but it moves pretty fast.

Small World has mastered the science of coffee: buying the best free trade beans. Roasting fresh and donating 10 day old beans. Perfect grind and master baristas who want to make the perfect beverage whether a cappuccino, macchiato, alonge or just a perfectly brewed drip. A good Cortado requires perfect bean or blend, water, Temp and pressure the right amount of frothed milk and in a glass ONLY.
If your last Cortado didn't look like this photo. Get yourself to SMall World and do yourself a BIG flavor!
