    Don't get a dirty chai! The espresso roast and the spice of their chai do not complement each other well. Try the chocolate truffle cookie, though!

    Place has perfected the pour-over technique so every flavor comes through and the coffee is never diluted. Their seasonal hibiscus ice tea is also a must try.

    Iced soy latte is an excellent go-to. If you're in the mood for a treat, go for an iced dirty chai or salted apple bread!

    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.

    Their large (12oz) Americano only has one shot and tastes quite weak. In their defense, it (logically) costs the same as the small Americano, but I didn't realize this at the time.

    Finally, a place that makes espresso that doesn't taste burned. You'd think this wouldn't be such a widespread problem in New York, but it is.

    Seasonal house - mix of Brazilian and Peru - and the unbeatable muffins are highly recommended. Also sometimes, when the weather is clear, you can pick up free wifi if u sit in the couch section.

    They take such care to brew coffee correctly, try drinking it black sometime, even if you usually add things or go with blended drinks.

    Everything here is delicious, but I'm partial to the chai latte- creamy, flavourful, and not too spicy. Beats Starbuck's any day of the week, and twice on Sundays.
