This cozy neighborhood coffee house not only has top-notch coffee, but a peaceful upstairs library where customers can borrow and exchange books. This all fits in with the green ethos of the place – even the furniture is made from environmentally friendly materials. More importantly, the farm-to-cup coffee is amazing, with a house blend that is full-bodied, chocolaty and suits all palates. However, the hit drink is the cold brewed iced coffee that New Yorkers go crazy for come summertime. For food, there’s a good selection of locally sourced salads, sandwiches and breakfast dishes. Tastiest of all is the grilled cheese sandwich. On a practical note, there’s one hour of free Wi-Fi and numerous electrical outlets, making this a pleasant environment for working.
