Foursquare Tips

  • A wonderful new addition to the neighborhood!
  • Tiny owner-run shop Kuro Kuma provides friendly service, Balthazar pastries and Counter Culture coffee to Columbia students and Morningside Heights residents.
  • Finally a great coffee place north of Columbia campus - this is infinitely better than joe's!
  • Great independent coffee shop. Stocks croissant from Balthazar. The owner is a delight.
  • $10 minimum on cards.
  • Great coffee and good selection of sodas and pastries.
  • Best coffee in the area. The lattes are super creamy, and the espresso is never bitter. Big MSM hangout, so if you can get a seat in the teeny space, you'll be surrounded by musicians! :)
  • Sugar scones!
  • Great person behind the counter. Cute local location. The counter culture coffee is always robust.
  • Amazing new cafe close to Columbia! Delicious 'Counter Culture' coffee
  • Well prepared coffee and friendly staff. No room to stay long but there's a friendly crowd that loiters in front. Perfect to get your caffeine fix on the go.
  • Counter Culture espresso ably pulled at this tiny & welcoming shop.
  • Lovely little place - joes has better ice chais, but not a bad alternative
  • Best coffee and espresso for miles! Plus baked goods, and in a cozy space with good tunes. What more could you want.
  • The beans are good but the baristas are awful. So awful espresso coffee in the end. Maybe the regular brew is good because much less skill, tinkering and passion needed there.
  • Undisputed best coffee for miles! Including espresso, drip coffee and anything based on these. Counter Culture beans and Balthazar baked goods round out the experience.
  • Nice espresso from a quirky little place
  • Tiny place! Don't go expecting a seat.
  • Cappuccino is great
  • They have soy milk
