COFFEE SHOPS IN NEW YORK
Although you can find a Starbucks on almost any corner in Manhattan—luckily, still less frequent in most of Brooklyn—skip the chains and tuck into one of the NYC coffee shops that the locals love to frequent!
Two Hands – Little Italy
Named after Heath Ledger’s break-out film, this NoLita café is owned by a couple of Sydneysiders.
La Colombe – Tribeca, SoH0, Wall Street, N0H0
In the summer, they have lattes and iced coffee on draft—they’ll combine both to do a coffee version of a Black and Tan, which is to die for.
City of Saints – Manhattan & Bushwick
Bushwick is known for its colorful murals and wide array of street art, and the City of Saints coffee shop embraces the neighborhood vibes.
Devocion – Brooklyn
One of the newer additions to the Williamsburg coffee scene, the Devocion’s understated black exterior gives no hints to the sunny oasis that lies within.
Ost Cafe – East Village
There’s a regular stream of regulars who come through for a takeaway coffee in the morning, and their interaction with the baristas is great for people-watching.
