Expert review of Doma
Situated in a former antique store, Doma serves filling sandwiches and baked goods throughout the day. The Czech eatery is brimming with students and freelance writers during the afternoon (WiFi is free). The eatery is low key and doesn't force you to leave if you haven't ordered a drink in an hour.
The food is surprisingly savory and many of the items are of Eastern European origin. The baked goods are fresh and of good quality. Doma serves a number of good wines by the glass. I was surprised to see a white from the lesser-known Landguedoc region of France.
The tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich is my favorite. It's pretty tasty and offers the right balance of flavors. The pear and endive salad is also a favorite of locals and the chicken schnitzel dinner platter draws crowds in the evening.
Casual and very informal; you won't get table service here. It's also usually quiet, especially during the day when people are working on their computers.
Laid back. You order at the counter, there is no table service.
On the corner of Perry Street and Waverly Place in the West Village.
Lunch will run to about $30 for two. Lunch is cheaper than dinner, although there isn't much of a price differential.
