At Spiegel in New York City’s trendy East Village, don’t bother asking your waiter for the WiFi password to connect your gadgets. Unlike most city coffee shops, Spiegel’s Israeli-born owner, Shmulik Avital, is working hard to create a unique environment – one that doesn’t include laptop- lined tables.

Opened in mid-March of this year, Spiegel aims to fill a gap in the New York lifestyle that native Israelis know all about: coffee-shop culture.
