According to, it is NOT iced coffee weather in the East Village today, but “things are looking better in 6 hours.” When the flood waters do part, you might want to know about the iced coffee float at Cafe Zaiya. The Japanese bakery and takeout spot on Cooper Square recently closed down for a quickie renovation and reopened yesterday with some rustic countertops and bento boxes from East Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Ball Factory. Among the new offerings is the coffee float you see up top. It’s the height of simplicity– iced drip coffee topped with some swirls of soft-serve ice cream– but if feels so good when it hits the lips. Is it iced coffee float weather yet?
