Coffee Houses, Cafes Espresso Lingering Places NEW YORK If all you want is a quick cup of coffee, don't go to a New York coffee bouse. It's not the place for it. The scores ol coffee houses and eafes that have mush- roomed in this city are places to ait and linger over .such exotic brew< as cappuccino, cafe mocha of course, cafe espresso. An Increasing number of them places to go for a variety of cK-beat entertainments. At Iho Mamlnl, for eximpte, you can see nvant garde plays. At I, you caa watch original Wttteal At UM Exodus, :M CM hew toott to-many s. At the Figaro you can at- tend a concert. The single element that Iks all of the diversified coffee houses to- gether is the espresso machine that sits in each one like a benev- olent Buddha. Its hissing and puff- ing produce a strong black brew called, logically enough, cafe es- presso. Additions of vnrious in- gredients to this basic brew pro- duce Ihe different coffees. Contrary lo popular belief, few beatniks frequent the houses. You will see students and their dates, icrlMis artists and gath- ered to discuss their and a number wild citizens out wilh Ihcir families for an evening's diversion. The price for this diversion is reasonable enough. The various coffees usually cost from about a quarter up !o 75 cents. There is rarely a cover, and a minimum, if any, usually runs only about dollar or two. There are now about 100 houses In Manhattan, more than half ot them concentrated in ihe bohemlan Greenwich Village area. They now also thrive In San Fran- cisco, Chicago and other maj r cities as well is in university towns. real cafe New York seems to have been (he Caffe Reggia on MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village.

The entertainers are paid, and Ihe revues arc gener- ally quite good, comparing favor- ably with some of Ihe higher- priced shows in night clubs. Cof- fee houses like Ihcre arc an important slarling poinl for new talent.
