    What a gem in this area! Has all the same stuff as the original Culture Espresso on 38th & 6th, but without the crowds. You NEED to get the chocolate chip cookie, only available after 10am.

    Running at $4 a latte, it's safe to assume it's going good. However, what's great about this place is that it's spacious (plenty of seats) and serve delectable desserts (doughnuts by dough).

    Unlike any shop in the area (which is very welcomed). Spacious, has bar seats and tables.They play good music (grunge when I went) and serve up flat whites (7/10 but I would come back to try others).

    Nice cafe stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. Serving Heart coffee from Portland and donuts from Dough in Brooklyn. At glance looks more like a show room space than coffee shop. Had to walk by twice

    The wifi, long tables, and chocolate chip cookies are aces, but you might want to have a backup plan for bathrooms as this spot has none. Read more

    Better than the 38th street location. Butttt Flat white was good for the first three sips then it was just hot milk and coffee.

    Now serving donuts from Underwent donuts. Try the brown butter donut. Chocolate Chip cookie is one of the best in the city.

    Awesome coffee and yummy pastries. An oasis in this neighborhood, which has no good independent coffee places. Decent amount of seating.

    Good space with multiple seats to get your flat white fix. Bonus points for donuts from Dough.

    High quality coffee and delicious baked goods. The strawberry banana muffin and chocolate chip cookie are worth the splurge!

    It's perfect! Good coffee, nice croissants. Good option to go if you have no breakfast in your hotel. This is way better to go to.

    Spacious and quiet ambience is a bonus. Iced latte is awesome here.

    First stop on a NYC coffee crawl. Psyched to find a Heart account, plus the chocolate chip cookie was bangin'.

    Right now this is the best espresso in mid town. Go to this one instead of the location in 39th. More room and less crowded

    Just like in the original Culture, drip coffee is always good but I also loved their chai!!

    Eat the **amazing** chocolate chip cookies. Skip the exceedingly average Heart stereo blend coffee 😬

    Coffee is so good, it is perfectly ok to come in by yourself, get your beverage, sit down, and enjoy it with your thoughts for company.

    No bathroom or place for customers to wash hands, more of a coffee-to-go shop. Coffee is good though and stuff is friendly.

    They play old foreign music on LP records, and I can't believe how catchy and good it is.
