    [Fika] Tiny, but the best coffee in town. Great breakfasts, house-made pastry (try the croissant bread pudding) and baristas completely dedicated to quality. Nice outdoor bar for that quick cortado.

    strong espresso drinks served in a quaint space on a less-trafficked street in the east village. the serving cups and plates are an adorable baby blue

    Wondering why the first sip of your americano is so awesome and intense? It's because they habitually do espresso on top of hot water (technically a long black), rather than water on top of espresso.

    Bluebird Coffee Shop is a cozy East Village café, where the pastries are made in-house and the Counter Culture coffee is brewed with care.

    I love the quaint space here. Great to sit in the front window and watch people go by on First Street. Try a donut! Sometimes they even have clementines for sale - goes well with your AM coffee!

    This small shop nestled right off of Houston has homemade pastries and strong espresso from Counter Culture. Instagram- and espresso-enthusiasts flock here to enjoy a solid cup. Read more

    Cute/cozy spot & good espresso. Few seats, but they have a few outside along the window that look great for the warmer weather.

    Laugh your way to a full stomach while the Prune brunch crowd grumbles in the street. Baked oatmeal w/ bananas & steamed milk or, cheddar chive biscuit w/ egg and bacon with a latte. #ObesityandSpeed

    Small space but good to grab and go sit in the park opposite. Small and tasty eats incl granola and yogurt and grilled sandwiches. Soy flat white was delicious.

    Hip little coffee spot next to Prune. Gets very crowded due to the small space (have 4-5 small tables). Strong, pick-me-up coffees. I'll be back!

    Great cortado, and if you're hungry the cheddar chive biscuits are always great (feeling glutinous? go for the breakfast sandwich on one)!

    Some seriously amazing coffee! I was worried about quality of coffee here in NY, but I leave this place every morning with a smile on my face when I take my first sip!

    Love the vibe here. The chaps are cool and they know how to pull off a killer flat white (and macchiato). Go Aussies!

    They brew Counter Culture. Great place to sit and stare out the window. Not many seats so come late afternoon during the week.

    Best baked oatmeal! Filling and delicious. Get a half inside/half outdoor window seat and people watch for hours.

    Try the canelés. Delicious! Custard on the inside, slightly caramelized on the outside. Goes great with your coffee.

    The maple bacon biscuits are to die for and the iced coffee is one of the better ones I've had in the city.

    OMG the cheddar biscuit egg sandwich is amazing. Almost as good is the baked oatmeal. Get both, enjoy.

    Small cozy spot with Wi-Fi on the weekends. Benches along the wall, stools by the window for people watching on 1st St.

    Sit in the window and stare out at the crowd walking past. You'll feel like you're in a safe haven looking out to the rest of the world

    Prefer espresso over filter coffee. Cute cozy space overlooking tree-lined 1st Street. The pastries look amazing.

    Biscuits with honey butter. Absurdly good. Sounds like a weird thing to say, but hands down the best butter I've ever had.

    Whether it's the coffee or their blackboard breakfast options, this is a lovely cafe for some alone time wake-me-up... it's teeny.

    Tyson Stagg might be my favorite barista. Along with a killer cortado, this place has my favorite egg sandwich in the entire city.

    Excellent coffee! Even if their cortado was basically a piccolo latte with the amount of milk given.

    I don't know what's in the almond croissant, but it must be crack. Buttery, topped with sugar, and apple jam inside
