Owner Ken Nye is often credited as the first person to bring serious coffee to New York City in 2001.
$2 for the best coffee in the city? Hell yes.
the wifi password is 341east10 and there's an outlet by the stools near the corner.
Unattended children will be given a cup of espresso & a free puppy!
$4.20 for a latte. oh baristas, you so funny.
I believe this is the most consistently excellent cappuccino I've had in NYC.
Best coffee in East Village.
cash only !
What does it take for the barista to crack a smile?
I like the 10th Street location because it feels homier, but despite offering free wi-fi, this isn't the best location to get work done. Serving Intelligentsia.
The dogs are barking in Thompson Square Park, grab your coffee and head over and bark back!
I never sleep.
I start my day here...almost every day.

One of the best coffee spots in the city.
Awesome coffee. Minimalist decor and seating. All about the caffeine here!
grab an apple turnover with your coffee. fresh and delicious.
Just about the best coffee in Manhattan. Definite best in East Village
Try the Alphabet City blend, which is roasted exclusively for Ninth Street Espresso by responsible caffeine powerhouse Intelligensia Coffee.
Pricey...but the $5 mocha is really very good!
Try the coffee!
Best iced lattes in the hood.
Iced latte and extreme air conditioning can't be beat on hot days. Almond croissant is good too.
Cash only... Lame
Really great coffee.
Cute baristos with fun accents and witty compliments.
Best coffee in NYC, both drip and cold brew are exquisite.
Amazing coffee, hipster vibe, and super nice baristas. What more could I ask for?
Didn't charge me for my espresso bc I was buying beans. Damn good.
Some of the best espresso in the city! They're a cash only business though, so remember that...
Ninth Street it a staple and if you catch barista Kate, you'll get one of my favorite macchiatos.
Very, very good indeed
Serious baristas - grumpy almost
Ok coffee.... There are cooler places in the area...
Sit at the front window for some excellent people watching. Excellent coffee - probably the most developed fruitiness I've ever had.
I've wasted my money in all the damn bars and cafes in this friggin city - this place makes THE BEST espresso drinks in all five boroughs. not maybe. not sometimes. definitely and always. nuff said.
Coffee is so good.
One of the best coffee I have ever had!
Best coffee in east village
Best in NYC (yes better than Mud)
Serving Intelligentsia-roasted coffees with an occasional severity that makes you just take it all the more seriously.
Warning: No bathrooms.
Not too thrilled with this spot. Got a lot of sass from the barista who then took my to go drink and started drinking it himself. Espresso was chalky. Great place if you're into pretentious baristas
Best coffee in the city... I love to get my coffee here and walk across the street to Tompkins Sqr dog park and watch all the doggies play = great Sunday morning
