    If you're a size queen (when it comes to your Joe), just go for the large black drip. You'll need two hands for that monstrosity. The "large" yuppie espresso drinks are short and stubby in comparison.

    [Fika] There are six Joe now, from West Village to Harlem, but this is our favorite. Outside on the bench is best, just watching life walk by; inside with a coffee and a book/friend isn't bad either.

    There are six Joe now, from West Village to Harlem, but this is still our favorite. Outside on the bench is best, just watching life walk by; inside with a coffee and a book/friend isn't bad either.

    The best espresso drinks in New York - strong, smooth, chocolatey and irresistible. Settle in with a cappuccino, and a perfect croissant or muffin, and enjoy the great tunes and Village ambiance

    One of the best places to go for a simple, strong, tasty coffee. If you come often, get the frequent buyer card so you get your 11th drink free! Also take note that it is cash only!

    Try the Americano Misto or Cortada. Small but has a community table for a bigger group. This isn't a meeting place but a place to come a savor a great cuppa Joe.
  • Alexandros P.
    Chai latte and cappuccino were good but I mostly like this place for the nice small terrace in the front. Really enjoyed sitting there and see the people passing by 😀

    Great coffee and pastries and a nice environment. General food selection fairly limited though. Place for a snack but not a meal.

    best part about Joe is that the baristas are without question #1 in nyc but don't take themselves too seriously. bonus? it actually means something to be a regular here which is hard to find anymore.

    Amazing! Just had the small vanilla latte. To Die For! Haven't had such a good coffee in a while. Also try the salted peanut butter cookies, very good too!

    This location & company started my love for expertly made coffee (that's almost a decade ago). Though there's changes of the beans, etc., it's still my go-to spot for coffee.

    Top notch microbrews+longish lines mark Joe The Art of Coffee, which sits on a coffee fault line 3 avenues west of Oren's Waverly Pl. shop. Relax at the handful of tables w/Joe's offer of newspapers.

    West village neighborhood favorite with a line (that moves fast). Very good cappuccino and inviting wooden seating, if you come early.

    Jonathan Rubinstein's espresso shop in the West Village has been a hit ever since it opened in 2002. Rubinstein recently switched to beans from Ecco Caffe, a boutique Sonoma roaster.

    This is the Barry Bonds in '01 of iced lattes. It's taking delicious espresso steroids and unfair to the weaker competitors.

    Hipster and tiny! But lives up to to Joe The Art of Coffee's standard. Opt for an espresso drink or pour-over, only served after noon.

    cash only. I can not stress this enough. The only indication they don't take cards is a tiny sign you'll only notice once you're at the register, rifling through your George-Washington-less-wallet.

    Unless it's snowing out, ask for a "cold brewed" iced coffee. Extra $ for coffee done right.
