The neighborhood vibe, pleasant décor and sense of space make this a great place to work, study or read a book from the book exchange library. The farm-to-cup coffee brewed on a La Marzocco machine is top-notch. Choose one of the superb blends or single-origins, and on hot summer days, bring the temperature down with a cold brew. For something stronger, check out the organic beers and wines, and consider a bite to eat from a selection of locally sourced salads, sandwiches, artisanal bread and pastries. Homeworkers will appreciate the work desks with electrical outlets and one hour of free Wi-Fi. This Upper West Side branch of Birch Coffee is a great addition to the area.
