    Nice guys serving strong coffee. If you don't mind the price tag, this place is great. They should really add some seats though.

    It's just coffee here folks, no fuss. It's good.

  • Ashley R.

    You can't go wrong with any espresso drink here. Iced coffee for the summer if you're into that sort of thing. And always a pastry

    Solid iced coffee....way too much space to not have some more seating tho, amiright?

  • Nate B.

    Ninth street espresso sets the standard for espresso and pour over in Alphabet City. The Tompkins Sq Park location does not disappoint.

    An excellent no-frills espresso bar with great cold brew and pastries. Cash only.

  • Daniel v.

    Espresso is pretty good - 7.5/10. I went twice and the first time the barista was pretty unfriendly, but the second time he was actually a jerk to me. There's no ambience either.

    Have an espresso drink and get some work done at the bar along the front of the place.

    Great place to hang out and get some work done when there's room.

    I love looking at the ever-rotating collection of art on the wall while waiting for a nine ounce. Great way to start a Saturday or Sunday morning.

    Not a lot of options on the block. Pop in for something on the run.

    My hot chocolate came with a heart, then mine melted... I tasted it and smiled. This was over a year ago and I still remember that hot chocolate. It was great.

    Best coffee in East Vill, hands down.

    Espresso with milk includes machiattos, cortados, lattes, and more - don't get confused. Cash only though!

    May be the best Americano I've ever had. Excellent.

    One of my faves. Get a delicious iced coffee (and it's not just a cup of ice, mind you. They don't skimp) and go chill by the dog park in Tompkins = weekend hangover recovery

    Ice coffee is off-the-rails.

    Definitely one of the better cups of coffee in the hood. Not the most comfortable for work though.

    Great coffees. Snag a window seat with a view of Tompkins Square park.

    A chill and quiet spot, perfect for studying and reading. Although the décor and menu are minimalistic, their coffee is brewed to absolute perfection. The baked goods went perfectly with our espresso.

    "Could I have 2x shot w/ one being decaf, please?" "No, we can't." the barista replies matter-of-factly. "Oh, any reason why?" "It's our policy" ... #Fail @9thStEspresso

    I prefer the 10th st one to the 9th one in terms of atmosphere, but both do great espresso

    Laura Noonan · April 20, 2014

    Order an espresso, grab a seat, and get some work done with great music in the background.

    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.
