    Great all around coffee for when you need an espresso drink and a pour over and a iced coffee in a really small space. Just get whatever you usually get. You will be pleased.

    Try the Espresso - #nom #ethiopian SO shot. Very fruity and a damn respectable shot. Best so far in NY. They weigh each dose for consistent pours. (via @Foodspotting)

    Best coffee around by far. Small with few seats, but a great place to grab a cup to go. If you're looking for a bigger soot, head to their location in the East Village.

    Their iced latte hits the spot on warm days. Grab it to go and enjoy it in Washington Square Park!

    Situated just below Washington Square Park, near NYU, Third Rail is one of our favorite overall shops, pulling consistently good shots of Intelligentsia, Stumptown & occasional guest espressos. Read more

    Best latte and espresso around WSP! Only downside is that it's cash only and the cafe is so tiny it's hard to find a place to sit during rush hours!

    A bit hidden and "off the beaten path" café but offers really nice cold brew and cortado

    Cash only. Great selection of doughnuts and brekky pastries. Friendly staff - very small interior. Grab a coffee and walk in Washington square park.

    Best coffee in the neighborhood! Maybe the city, too. The guys there are pretty awesome and they serve good pastries in the morning. Their lattes and iced lattes are to die for! -Erica C

    The Costa Rica Herbatzu [Stumptown], single-origin, Chemex drip coffee is well above average. So is the price, at $3.75 for a 12 ounce cup, freshly ground per order. A 1960s soundtrack was memorable.

    Grab a Chemex pour over. They have a different selection of four tasty single origin coffees available every day.

    The best place to get cheap Stumptown coffee in Greenwich Village. We love the baked goods too!

    You have some choices when you get coffee here, and one of them is brewed with a chemex. Try it. The flavour is outstanding.

    Best coffee in the area. Combine and iced coffee with a falafel on the next block for a great $5 lunch. Go often and the barristas get to know your name and order - isn't that what we all want?

    Great small coffee place. Nice guys behind the counter. A fee places to sit and hang or work a little. I'll be back!

    The people who work here are so friendly! Fresh baked goods in the morning, come early to get the ham & cheese croissants. Lattes are the very best as well.

    Their drip coffee can be really bitter and bad in the afternoon. I guess they don't keep a fresh pot on hand. Their espresso and service are always great, however!

    It's a really tiny coffee shop. The muffins are really good, also the coffee is not bad. People are friendly. It's cash only

    On a sunny day, get yourself a Cortado, walk over to Washington Square Park and feel the caffeine race through your body.

    The seasonal drip brew, Stumptown Costa Rica Gold Mountain, is a winner. Cherry and honey notes ring out.

    The quintessential NYU-student caffeination spot, which is to say that there is always a line-up here.

    Lattes are great. Long lines go fast, but give plenty of time to enjoy the place and run into neighborhood characters from a different era.

    Open the cap and wait for the coffee to cool down a bit. The coffee is dangerously hot and they don't have hotstoppers. Good Coffee though.

    What to Order: Whatever's being offered from "guest" roasters — although the beans cost more, Ricardo charges the same price so customers are more willing to try them.

    Not a lot of seating but also not very crowded. Cozy. The cream cheese blueberry muffin is also so yum.

    Hand-poured drip coffees - they take their time and it shows. Be sure to try it out, it's worth the wait.
