    Good espresso, friendly staff, a nice space to relax in. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. Oh, they also have cold brew and Kyoto style iced. Espresso to stay+cold brew to go=happy

    Take a break from Manhattan's hustle-bustle at the Library in Birch Coffee, the Gershwin Hotel's quirky coffee shop. This lofty space is perfect for warming up to an old book while sipping coffee! Read more

    Can we talk about that wall of books for a sec? Along with plenty of reading material, this neighborhood spot has some of the best cold brew under the sun. (It’s never too chilly for iced coffee) Read more

    Great for a coffee before work. They have tasty oat and hemp milk for all you non dairy fans. Good amount of seating if you're looking to hang out. Grab a loyalty card as there's multiple locations

    Ooh, the Kyoto cold brew involves brewing coffee in a really cool glass contraption popularized in Kyoto, Japan. You’ll have to wait a little longer for a cup, but it’s definitely worth it. Read more

    The new age coffeeshop with their own roasted beans. These guys know their coffee brewing and all that latte art. They are a close second in the city after Stumptown. Yes, the queues are long but fast

    The baristas are super friendly,the arrangement of the shop encourages conversation. If you're there to work, head up the secret staircase around the side to the "library" when you can set up shop.

    Since Birch opened their first location in 2009, they have been dedicated to making a better Kyoto Cold Brew. They brew using their single origin beans for a rich, darker flavor Read more

    A hidden gem amongst the retail giants of Manhattan, with lovely coffee but no WiFi (before 5pm). Chicken sandwich was pretty special, lots of flavour and good quality meat

    Coffee is good, but this location has lost a lot of its charm since it moved to their new space. It's a lot more coffee shop and less cafe, with shorter hours and a smaller, less interesting space.

    Don't sit in the hotel, as they are very insistent about non-guests occupying their lobby. Go through the door marked "H" and you'll find Birch Coffees cute little library.
