    Love their espresso so much that I walk past FOUR other coffee shops to come here. 😉 Best espresso in the 72nd/Bway area.

    One of the top 3 best mochas I've ever had. Only about 5 seats, but cozy atmosphere.

    The Upper West Side needed this. Tiny shop, but a good alternative to Joe or Irving Farm. Great music, baristas, and coffee.

    Solid coffee and donuts in a small, cozy setting, but with a surprisingly good amount of seating. Grab a spot on the bench by the window!

    Cozy teeny-tiny place with some of the best coffee on the UWS, friendly service and truly fabulous donuts in classic and original flavors like lemon poppy, passion fruit, or hibiscus.

    I really hated the espresso tonic. It is not not for everyone...

    a real hole in the wall that serves up some mean java... I had a cortado and loved it.

    Hipster coffee shop on the decidedly un-hip UWS. Go here when you want to elevate your coffee game. Try the Espresso Tonic. It sounds weird, but it works.

    The Unicorn specialty drink here is basically a milkshake in a fancy glass. For all that it's delightful. The coffee is easily some of the best on the Upper West Side.
