Foursquare Tips

  • Far & away the best coffee in midtown. Owned & operated by Aussies. Try a Flat White.
  • The cookies are fresh baked behind the counter and are surprisingly delicious.
  • Appropriate name. Culture is the perfect respite from the cultural wasteland between Penn Station (34th)and Times Square. Make it a ritual stop.
  • Protip: Time your visit for the late afternoon when they've just pulled out a sheet of fresh chocolate chip cookies out of the oven. Warning: You may die of happiness.
  • This place is great if you want to read overly redundant tips about the damn flat whites and chocolate chip cookies... When you're done with that crap, just get a machiato and enjoy the hipster music.
  • Thank God for Culture Espresso Bar.
  • All the pastries are amazeballs.
  • the Intelligentsia espresso if fantastic: rich, bursting with fruit afternotes. Pairs well with their blackberry and mango muffins ... nom nom
  • Warm cookies #ftw
  • If you haven't had their chocolate chip cookie you are missing out
  • Rotating cast of roasts, and consistently great coffee (I've encountered Counter Culture, Intelligentsia, Stumptown, and now Sightglass). These guys are heroes for bringing non-generic to midtown.
  • The chocolate chip cookies are the best on earth. No lie.
  • Best cookies ever!
  • Great coffee, great crowd. Wifi password: 2123020200
  • A refuge in the abyss of good coffeeshops (aka midtown). Their chocolate chip cookies are to die for - giving Le Vain a run for their money with their gooey centers and crispy edges.
  • I love Culture but I'd recommend you avoid the drip coffee. It's unspectacular. On the flip side, the best latte I've had in my life was made here.
  • A fabulous espresso bar with some fine sandwich options on the chalkboard menu, located amidst the bustle of West 38th Street.
  • Hit this bar, then enjoy your coffee in Bryant Park.
  • Get the flat white. I promise I'm not racist.
  • Heavenly cookies, and espresso , it is a real NYC jewel
