    Best coffee on Columbia's campus, but lacking gluten free food choices. The hibiscus iced tea is an awesome choice when you don't feel like coffee. Beware: the chai mix has dairy in it, is not vegan.

    Well crafted, high quality coffee. This location is super convenient for those of us who live in the Heights! Never had trouble getting a seat, but I tend not to mind sharing a table with a stranger.

    We don't enjoy Joe's espresso as much since the switch to Intelli Black Cat, but today's thick, bright shot had a fruity enough aftertaste to overcome the popcorn-y tinge and left us wanting another.

    Awesome place to work or have an informal meeting. Amazing coffee. I'm a big fan of the small latte or flat white depending on what part of the world you are in.

    If you haven't tried the French Dip, you are really missing out. If you're vegetarian, the Guacamole & Hummus Sandwich is the tastiestiest combo of vegetarian fun between two awesome slices of bread.

    A much better alternative to Starbucks – with a smooth and rich coffee. Pair it with a delicious muffin. Or take some beans home to brew it yourself.

    Quality coffee drinks and beautiful all-glass and granite environment. Generally dislike the music and they continuously skipped my order when redeeming my customer loyalty card (10 drinks = 1 free).

    The coffee is the hero, but those sea salt chocolate chip cookies are goddamn amazing. Take some napkins, because the chocolate can get very gooey.

    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.

    Great coffee of course! Good spot for pourover, although you may have to fight for a table. Great spot to work if you can get it.

    Big open space, great coffee, wifi. Good for working with a laptop, especially now that Lenox Coffee's Internet is basically nonfunctional.

    Get a chai latte and share a table with a stranger. The views from the floor to ceiling windows and a warm drink make you feel like studying even when you are exhausted.

    Amazing coffee, awesome floor-to-ceiling windows. Great place to study if you can snag a table. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Come for the enormous glass walls that look out onto the more traditional architecture of Columbia's Teacher's College. Coffee feels standard, and food options are sadly a bit limited.

    The new flavor from Guatemala is good. I recommend it if you drink pour overs rather than espresso.

    Good atmosphere and good food. If you wanna try a breakfast sandwich try it with ham. My girl has ordered without ham and said mine's better.

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

    College-quality coffee (👌🏻) in the literal heart of Columbia. Long lines at times, but it goes quickly. Vegan cookies, too.

    Love the fact that there's a Joe coffee at Columbia. Seating area has great natural light but fills up quickly.
  • Eric G.
    The pros: Amazing WiFi, good coffee, and ample seating. The cons: only 4 outlets and the counter closes early.

    Long queue! Other than that everything tastes great. I love their sandwiches, though most people are in line for the great coffee.

    Best tasting coffee and the soy they use is Pacific Soy Barista Blenders which makes all the difference if ur dairy-free like me

    Packed with college kids, long lines though move quickly, hard to get a seat, cappuccino was delicious but even for NY ridiculously priced. At least there's good eye candy.

    Try to grab a seat by the window on a sunny afternoon and enjoy the sun and watch people passing by.

    A regular cappuccino/latte comes with 2 shots of espresso already, be cautious adding an extra shot unless caffeine is your religion.

    Great atrium to sit with fantastic light from the huge windows. Always crowded.

    Usually hard to find a seat. The lines go quickly, though. So you'll be in and out in no time.

    The lines are much more acceptable around 6pm. And the view at sunset is quite awesome.

    The Colombian coffee is from the wrong place in Colombia. Instead of being from the coffee region it's from the sugar region, hence why it may not be the favored coffee here.

    A bit more expensive than what you'd get at any other university cafeteria but I guess it's worth the price :)

    Occasional long lines because this is this only option in the science and engineering quadrant of the Columbia campus. And it's good!

    Probably the only decent coffee shop on Columbia's campus. Plan on a pass through with every table full almost all day long.

    Nice place to study at Columbia! However, it's always packed, so finding a seat can be a struggle.
  • Cheryl H.
    This joe is near/in Columbia university is so crowed with students who occupy most of the seats doing their homework. Some of them don't even order coffee or food. Very inconsiderate people!!!!!

    Typical student-café on campus (Columbia University). The location is nicely overlooking an intersection. Unfortunately it's always crowded and you might not even be able to score a seat.

    there is almost never seating in joe's, so don't be shy and just join someone's table.

    Okay coffee. Columbia crowd. Beautiful building. Beware of long lines during school hours. I wish it opened earlier.

    For an iced drink on a hot summer day, get the cold brew. Great blend.

    This has one of the nicest restrooms on the Columbia campus—and you're not required to buy anything à la Starbucks.

    It's a pity. Their latte is really good but it just went from $4 - already really expensive - to $4.25. A few blocks away, Oren's latte is still $3.50
