Went for a coffee just before the 6th Avenue spring fair and I must admit I went partially for the name but man this place was good , a real laidback bohemian vibe from the decor to the young lads serving the really tasty coffee...More

I have been here many times. I usually content myself with a cappuccino, and maybe a butter croissant. Both are delicious. But today they had a special, a cardamom rose latte. I imagined some overly sweet, overly seasoned concoction. But I had time to kill,...More

Are you Italian or would you like to enjoy a decent/good coffee in Manhattan? There's no here. Nice location, in and outside but it's not enough. Coffee too toasted, stronger taste than it used to have. Nothing to share with the average Italian coffee. Sorry.

This hidden gem in Chelsea has good coffee, some good snacks, and a cool hip ambiance. Grumpy makes good coffee, so you shouldn't miss this!

Great selection of pour overs; good espresso drinks too. And a nice case filled with pastries. Located on a quite residential street in Chelsea. A good bet if you're in the area.

I come here when I'm in the neighborhood and I want a perfect cappuccino. They don't overdo it, it's just exactly the way a cappuccino is supposed to be, with the perfect amount of steamed milk and the perfect amount of foam, and a velvety,...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
