    Consistent coffee with friendly baristas. Still prefer the Joe Pro shop on 21st but love the long communal table and the beautiful pendant lights. One of the best coffee spot in the UES area.

    Hard to believe espresso this good can be found on the UES. Cappuccino, cortados, iced lattes, even the chai lattes -- can't go wrong. Joe is my favorite coffee in NYC.

    Iced cold brew is so good! I wish they had wifi because it would be a good place to get some work done. Cute picnic table-like seating with stools and a couple of window seats!

    The cappuccino is sooooo good! Since we came back home to the Netherlands we've been trying to find coffee that tastes similar to Joe Coffee cappuccino of whatever, but we can't find it ANYWHERE!! 😢

    Looking for a "traditional cappuccino" here, with a 5 - 6oz pour of milk? You'll find it on the menu masquerading as a "Cortado."

    Love the iced green tea w/ simple syrup! When not all gone, decent banana bread, donuts, scones & even vegan cookies.

    For those in need of a break from the utterly commercial (or Starbucks), this baby blue bad boy is tops. Come to Joe's and taste/see for yourself.

    Starbucks in fascist, go to joes instead. The barista even has a degree in women's studies. And they only take cash of course. A must for any one with a superiority complex .

    A nice cozy little spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy coffee and gossip with friends.

    They opened a week ago, and were just getting their baby blue custom-built espresso machine installed when I stopped in just now. The built-in pour-over bar goes in next week.

    Great coffee and yummy-looking pastries, nice staff. Looks small, but is a surprisingly comfortable place to sit. Also, friendly patrons.

    I like the scones and the yogurt with cream on top; they also serve great cappuccinos brewed with the coffee of the day.

    Joe's good coffee is a given, but the Manhattan mini-chain specializes in friendly and helpful service.

    Good latte with decent seating (don't sit next to the bathroom though, unless you want a headache from the hand dryer)

    Leave some time between espresso sips, enjoy it, its great quality. You can always shoot it after you've had a nice taste ;)

    Great espresso based coffee and my fav iced mocha in the summer months. Not too sweet and good strength of coffee.

    Try the Espresso Machiatto - Nice. My friend walked us into Starbucks but I asked for something less familiar so we did an about face to this fine java joint.

    Get a latte or espresso drink their coffee is watered down. If you grab a pastry make sure it's before 2 they get stale. And remind the hipster barista what you ordered because she will be distracted

    Great coffee! Love their almond milk and vegan banana chocolate chip muffins. Large communal table to work at.

    Let's just say, these people take coffee as seriously as only a true hipster could, they even have a school for those looking to release themselves from the chains of caffeine ignorance. Read more

    Cold brew iced latte...wowweeee! Chocolate-y and smooth, a must-try. On weekends the wait can be horrendous though :/

    Your best bet for good coffee in UES. Also, probably one of their prettiest locations, pretty spacious, top-notch baristas.

    Their black iced tea is so perfect, strong without getting that over brewed plastic taste, favorite in NYC.

    Took them a long time in general, but they also forgot my drink. It's understandable, though... they had 4 customers, which is A LOT. They should learn from their fellas in Grand Central.

    Decent if you're used to SF coffee shops. Not the best coffee, but a breath of fresh air in stuffy upper east side. No wifi is a good move. Decor is not bad.
