Some of the best coffee shops to check out in New York City

The Nerdy Me

A day in the life of a typical New Yorker simply can't begin properly until they have had their first sip of coffee in the morning. Most of the people are not in the habit of brewing their coffee in homes, and that is why the culture of picking the coffee while on their way to work is pretty common.

It is not just the coffee that coffee shops around New York offer, it is the complete experience package, if we do say so, including taking a morning snack, a bagel or even a donut if you feel like it.

Although people tend to choose coffee shops depending on how close they are to their current location, some of the best coffee shops can be found a bit further away.

So if you are willing to explore a bit around and find the best of the best, then the following are a few spots that you should really be looking into.


Located in East Village, Abraco started offering coffee first back in 2007 and have been running ever since. Now it is considered one of the most iconic coffee places in all of the city of New York.

The beans, for instance, are sourced from South America and are then roasted in the shop along with using pure organic-based cow milk, which brings out the richness and frothiness of the coffee that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

It is not a small coffee joint anymore as there is the proper sitting place now, and you can enjoy all sorts of delights while sipping the pure richness.

Address: 81 E 7th St, New York, NY 10003

Sey Coffee

If you are looking to spend your morning sipping the most sensual coffee while enjoying a great retro vibe of the place around you, Sey Coffee is definitely where you should be.

This is the place where people come to enjoy their coffee and chat with friends. But this also the place if you are seeking some quiet alone time. It offers something for everyone.

The name might not bring a whole lot of appeal to the table, but it is truly one of the most amazing coffee places in New York City, especially for the regulars and NYU students making assignments and discussing things while chugging on their favourite retro food along with the best brewed coffee in their hands.

It has got a pretty colourful vibe going on, and maybe that is the reason why it is so popular and loved by locals.

Address: 750 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10025.


The whole aspect of your morning wearing down on you in terms of the commuting that you need to do to get to work, the pile of work that is waiting for you there and commuting back to your home can be challenging and nerve-wracking. So why not slow down a bit and enjoy the tranquillity that Devocion has to offer?

It is a great coffee chain that offers an array of tropical plants, largely bolted windows that allow the crisp sunlight to pour in, which makes for a pretty breathtaking view. How much more good it can get?

Well, throw in a large cup of hot coffee in your hands and sipping the most exotic flavours you have ever tasted while not letting the tranquillity of the place go from your conscious mind; it is simply magnificent.

Address: 25 E 20th St, New York, NY 10003.
