Five of Our Favorite NYC Coffee Shops

Café Grumpy:

Great coffee and good pastries, but the gem of this coffee shop is the cute little garden seating in the back. They have a no-laptop policy, so bring a book or a friend! Grumpy Café forces you to unwind and take a real coffee break. 224 W. 20th St, NY

Gimmy! Coffee:

Simple coffee made great every time! Never too sweet, no frills, and priced just right, they pride themselves on a solid cup of coffee. Multiple places around NYC and Brooklyn

Kaffe 1668:

This café has a cool, hipster vibe, which is clear the minute you step into it’s sheep-themed interior. The staff is friendly, there is always plenty of seating, (two floors!) and free wifi. 275 Greenwich Street, TriBeCa


Known for it’s silky espresso and delicious pastries. Don’t stop by without trying their signature olive oil cake! However, it’s a grab and go kind of place, no sit-down available. 86 East 7th St, East Village

Blue Bottle Coffee:

Many argue Blue Bottle has the best cold-brew drip coffee around. They also make a stronger New Orleans-style fortified with chicory, which tastes great with a little bit of milk! 450 W 15th St, Chelsea
