Far & away the best coffee in midtown. Owned & operated by Aussies. Try a Flat White.
The cookies are fresh baked behind the counter and are surprisingly delicious.
the Intelligentsia espresso if fantastic: rich, bursting with fruit afternotes. Pairs well with their blackberry and mango muffins ... nom nom
Thank God for Culture Espresso Bar.
Try the Figgy and spot it on Foodspotting!
Protip: Time your visit for the late afternoon when they've just pulled out a sheet of fresh chocolate chip cookies out of the oven. Warning: You may die of happiness.
Try the Flat White - Rich & smooth. The perfect drink to get your caffeine levels back up. (via @Foodspotting)
Try the flat white, our personal favorite.
order any coffee at all. espresso and iced variety are stunning
A fabulous espresso bar with some fine sandwich options on the chalkboard menu, located amidst the bustle of West 38th Street.
All the pastries are amazeballs.
If you haven't had their chocolate chip cookie you are missing out
Rotating cast of roasts, and consistently great coffee (I've encountered Counter Culture, Intelligentsia, Stumptown, and now Sightglass). These guys are heroes for bringing non-generic to midtown.
The chocolate chip cookies are the best on earth. No lie.
can't beat the chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. the figgy sandwich is also delicious!
Best cookies ever!
Order an iced slow coffee and oh, do try the cranberry mango bran. So good
Uncommon personality and quality for this part of town.
This place is great if you want to read overly redundant tips about the damn flat whites and chocolate chip cookies... When you're done with that crap, just get a machiato and enjoy the hipster music.
Hit this bar, then enjoy your coffee in Bryant Park.
Just off 6th Ave, the stools in the full-front window provide a view of Garment District workers and tourists, while you enjoy a well-crafted espresso or pourover along w/ a Scratchbread scone.
Get the flat white. I promise I'm not racist.
Best espresso in midtown
Best coffee in the area... Get a flat white! Yummy!!! Pastries are so good too!!
Coffees great. Staffs extremely standoffish and rude. Ruins experience.
I love Culture but I'd recommend you avoid the drip coffee. It's unspectacular. On the flip side, the best latte I've had in my life was made here.
WiFi was acting up on our last visit, but the pour over and green tea cookie were delicious. The vibe is great, but the space is limited, making this a perfect spot for a quick stop between meetings.
Fantastic gluten free chocolate, pecan, coconut cookie. Yum.
Cold brew coffee, home-made cookies, and beards. A little piece of brooklyn in midtown.
Everyone that works there is presh, and the Kyoto iced coffee is delicious!
If you have an extra minute ask them to make your coffee with a chemex, less acidity without sacrificing flavor.
Get the figgy sandwich (prosciutto, goat cheese, arugula, and fig spread on baguette) mmm...
Iced tea FTW
Amazing fresh baked cookies.
One size fits all at this quaint shop in Midtown. Some of the best espresso in NYC.
Smooth espresso, tasty sandwiches and quite possibly one of the best chocolate chip cookies in the city.
try a cortado to stay. enjoy listening to the baristas' (Aussie?) accents. pretend you're not in midtown but are in fact somewhere much more your speed.
A flat white is an Australia/New Zealand espresso beverage that is making it's way to artisan shops in America. These folks have the best flat white in NYC.
Great Americanos! Every time! :)
Puts every cookie I've had in nyc to shame. Get one!
Obnoxiously loud music, pretentious staff, long lines but hey, the coffee is good so what can you do.
A refuge in the abyss of good coffeeshops (aka midtown). Their chocolate chip cookies are to die for - giving Le Vain a run for their money with their gooey centers and crispy edges.
Good espresso, small but nice. A little bit expensive
The chocolate chip cookies are insanely good.
Great place for a coffee break. The fresh baked cookies are awesome! #notpaleo
Also, they serve DOUGH here!
Get there early enough to snag some Barritt's ginger beer.
