Foursquare Tips

  • Drip coffee, fresh bakery and even almond milk. Communal table in front great for meetings. Back library perfect for relaxed reading. Could use more seating, but for Midtown East this is a real cafe.
  • This coffee shop carries a greatest hits list of pastries from great bakeries around the city.
  • La Colombe without having to hike downtown. Amazing to-die for latte!
  • The most trendy coffee shop in midtown? La Colombe cappuccinos with fast free wifi, comfy couches, and oversized lamps.
  • Get a flat white ($3.75) and go find yourself a seat in the back. Very cozy and comfortable. I could spend the whole day here. You can grab a book to read from the library or use the free wifi.
  • Definitely one of my favorite coffee houses in NYC. Get the Chai Latteit's on the sweeter side but it's so good!
  • May be NYC's friendliest coffee shop - and OMG on the pour over coffee.
  • Typically not a fan of soy chai tea lattes but theirs is nice + creamy. Good coffee alternative. Nice service + free pastry samples don't hurt!
  • Tasting Table says: "Find La Colombe brew along with pastries from Blue Sky, Mille-Feuille and Colson and a back library"
  • Appealing space with a cozy 'living room' in the back
  • Get your records and ask the baristas to play them for you.
  • I used the Cups app for a cold brew after work, which was very good. $8 for any of their thoughtful selection of wine. Record collection and books in the back= super cozy.
  • Great coffee and bakery.
  • This place is a hidden gem - cozy atmosphere, friendly baristas, and good coffee!
  • Great coffee, comfy chairs/couch in back, free wifi...owner bought me a coffee just because I biked here!
  • We love this cozy and inviting coffee shop, mainly for its awesome pastries, iced coffee, and library in the back - making this the ideal place to get some serious work done.
  • Delicious muffins from blue sky bakery in Brooklyn and friendly baristas--feels like a downtown coffee shop transplanted to midtown east.
  • Can't believe this place is hiding in Midtown. Library in back with Chesterton couches. #winning
  • The atmosphere is amazing
  • El local con ms espritu navideo y servicio al cliente que pueden encontrar en La Gran Manzana. Su seleccin de caf es fenomenal.
