Foursquare Tips

  • Only a few tables are set up, but already happy neighbors are pouring through the door in this coffee wasteland area of the Upper West Side. Only coffee for now but expect beer, wine & food.
  • DELICIOUS grilled cheese and avocado, among other tasty small plates, and great selection of beer on tap (served in actual pint glasses, thank you).
  • Grab a cortado (it's really good), settle in a quiet nook with your feet up and finish some winter reading. Coupon based free hr of WiFi available on some days. Music can annoy if you're studying.
  • Music is oppressively loud and the WiFi is capped at an hour. The flat whites are good and the desk nooks are cute, but it's clear they're trying to push you out the door. Go elsewhere.
  • Great coffee, wifi and the do a loyalty card as well!
  • They serve their cold brew on tap and have amazing breakfast sandwiches!
  • Awesome neighborhood hangout. The coffee, food, and craft beer selection is top notch. This place doesn't cut any corners with quality.
  • The UWS branch is spacious and ambient, with street-facing windows and a lovely staff. The cold brew is well regarded as the best around. Grab a punch card and don't rush out, a great place to linger.
  • Kitchen is closed! Only baked goods here.
  • Arguably the best coffee shop on the Upper West Side. Awesome coffee, happy baristas, and an amazing goat cheese grilled cheese with mint and apricot. Get the table by the window.
  • This place is just ok. They make a mediocre flat white and its buzzing which I don't love from a coffee shop, but it's serviceable.
  • Hanging out with a friend drinking tea
  • You can even have French toasts to with just delicious butter if you ask for them.
  • Good tea. Good music. Great book. Chill ass lunch break ;)
  • They pull some good espresso. Usually crowded but as one of the best coffee spots in the area, it makes sense.
  • Good coffee! $3 for an Americano were totally worth it!
  • Grilled cheese avocado and tomato sandwich is highly recommended
  • Baked goods from Dough = perfection
  • No wifi on the weekends! No seats either!
  • Very bad service
