    If you enjoy tea, you'll appreciate the quality of the Hojicha Green Tea. It's aromatic, sweet & less astringent than most teas. Steep for 2-3 minutes at 180°. Steep longer for more strength.

    The best part is, you can eat your pastry while you watch people walk into soul cycle, and think to yourself "they're not even that hot, and this pastry is great!"

    Love this coffee shop and unfortunately so does everyone else. Light-filled, spacious, delicious cortados and pastries, and a diverse/good looking crowd. Great spot for getting work done.

    Really friendly service. Iced coffee at the counter is hot coffee over ice with a shot of espresso. Cold brew is sold in a vintage vending machine. Very crowded even during a non-peak hour.

    Cafe location is Eco friendly and the la marzocco machines make a mean, well rounded espresso. Lines can be insane during peak coffee hours (3-4:30pm)...prepare to wait!

    High ceilings, draft lattes (or a Black and Tan if you're not feeling that decadent) and blue berry muffins. I prefer the benches outside- SoulCycle foot traffic = prime people watching.

    Coffee and cold brew is as damn good as it gets in NYC! Love the personal touches post-order with mixing spoon, non-pretentious service, and water tap in the back. Only one thing: Turn up the AC! 😅

    Luckily the excellent La Colombe has a flagship store on the way back to the East Side. At La Columbe, a massive temple to the majestic coffee bean, complete with marble decor and massive pillars

    Great place. They really know coffee. Curtis showed me today how to grind my coffee, use my chemex and the ratio of beans to water (in weight). The folks are great. It really as good as I say.

    The iced draft latte is a real innovation, coming out frothy from a keg with the head of a Guinness beer. Best vibe coffee shop in NYC, of course.

    One if my favorite iced lattes around! Hold back on the sugar - the latte is milky, smooth, and has just the right flavor on its own. Highly recommend!

    From the shot of espresso in your iced coffee to the plate, lid and spoon given no matter what, La Colombe Torrefaction is worth a visit. Excellent coffee, that, you know, tastes like coffee.

    Notoriously long lines (NYU is right around the corner) but sometimes right at noon, there's a lull in activity. Try the olive oil bread and an americano- it's my personal pick me up.

    Coffee is a holistic ritual here. From the shot of espresso in each iced coffee, to the plate, lid and spoon given even for to-go orders, the attention to detail is something to admire.

    Wondered how their iced coffee tastes SO much stronger than any one I've ever had, joked that it tasted like iced espresso, went here and discovered there is an espresso shot in it. IT ALL MAKES SENSE

    Long line almost always. Be prepared to wait forever and not mind one tiny bit. A somewhat anachronistically zen experience, considering that what you've come for is a superior-to-most caffeine fix.

    The place is very hip and has a lot of culture. At least feels like it. Sort of inspired me to learn more about the culture behind coffee beans and how they are brewed. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    I always come here for the awesome iced coffee (that comes with an espresso shot) but today I tried the gluten free chocolate walnut cookie and... Wow. Perfectly chewy and delicious.

    What a great spot! Been coming here for two years. The staff is so wonderful, so pleasant, and so professional. The coffee, equally amazing. I have NEVER had a bad experience here.

    The space is great, the coffee is fine but the most impressive thing about the place is the attitude of the staff! Great vibe & positive energy!!

    Baristas solve the puzzle of this cafe sans coffee list. "They're all blends," one said. Corsica is the rich house brew, Nizza, espresso. Extras: ceramic mugs, silver spoons, glass of water 3 ways.

    Unusual service marks La Colombe Torrefaction: a 12 oz. ceramic mug of coffee + a glass of water -- flat, sparkling, room temp -- all for $2. 40-odd cafe seats add value. Acoustics range mellow-loud.

    Really excellent. Love the new draft latte and cold brew / Black and Tan. Lines are permanently 20 people long which is annoying. And staff is hit or miss, which is disappointing. But I keep going bck
  • Lindsay T.
    Great, friendly, knowledgable, and efficient staff all day the morning line wraps around the whole store but within 3-5 minutes you're at the register... They're magical!

    This is the most beautiful of the La Colombe locations (and the biggest to our knowledge). The secret trick that runs across all: An extra shot of espresso in the iced coffee.

    Get the black and tan for a nice mix between the very creamy draft latte and more bitter draft cold brew

    Pretty delicious iced coffee. Instead of a communal milk/sugar station you get your own spot at the bar to doctor up your drink.

    Most refreshing iced latte I've had in a while. Brewed to perfection and would be a great place to study. There are power outlets and plenty of seating.

    What to Order: Either a Gibraltar, made with two shots of espresso and a dash of warm milk, or La Colombe's pre-bottled Pure Black iced coffee.

    The iced coffee, both a delicious and dangerous choice, automatically comes with an extra shot of espresso (red eye). Lactards beware - no soy or almond milk here!

    Nothing hits the proverbial 'good coffee' spot like this location's iced coffee (and it has a shot of expresso for double oomph). My favorite coffee spot- and location.

    La Colombe is sure to wake you up with its iced coffee. Baristas here put a shot of espresso in every cup to make sure you're awake by the time you leave.

    Line for coffee is insanely long on a weekday afternoon... but atmosphere is wonderful with lots of natural light. No wifi or outlets though.

    The baristas know who you are if you come often enough — that alone is worth the long lines.  Regardless, the best cappuccino in nyc.

    Finally, coffee bliss in Manhattan! Strong, smooth but bitter, with none of that wretched sourness that plagues NYC coffee... wonderful. Their latte is perfect.

    Great, strong coffee and espresso, but a bit over roasted and dark for some. Lattes on draft!

    The best latte - or coffee, period - I've ever had. The croissant was delicious as well.

    One of the best (and cheap) cups of coffee in the city. Iced coffee gets an extra shot of espresso and for the dieters, they don't believe in skin milk.

    The line is always wrapped around the place but it moves FAST and the coffee is worth the tiny wait. Great place to sit and do work also.

    Power outlets are scarce, but one is available next to the standing table by the cashier. Bring a power strip and become everyone's best friend.

    Good coffee but how was my cappuccino at Saturdays Surf (made with la colombe espresso) soooooo much better than the one I got at this storefront??

    Great space for working - minus the fact that they don't have wifi. But overall vibes and atmosphere make this my go to work spot

    I've been living of their americano for a week now. Strong in flavor but still smooth. Nice location as well. Definitely recommended.

    Draft iced coffee is amazing. Def go for the Black and Tan! Cookies from Birdbath are good. Just make sure they're guarded from flies

    The line can be long, but it moves just as fast (if not faster) than Starbucks. But these drinks are actually worth the wait. So good!

    Not a coffee drinker (anymore), but craft beans galore. Lines are long but worth it - staff make you feel special. MUCH better than an sbux or anything else.

    The iced coffee is incredible. If you're wondering why, it's the espresso shot. Go for the olive oil cake and chocolate cookie. quality.
