Looking for a place to drink good coffee near to East 59th/5th Ave.

I'm meeting a colleague from UK (I'm from there too) before a conference commences. We'd like to chat over a decent coffee. Any recomendations?

        Also...tiny bit further...there's a little espresso-only place with an Italian (?) name on 6th Ave. around 56th, W side of the Ave. Easy to miss because of its size, but very good...musicians from nearby Carnegie Hall told me about it. Maybe someone else can come up with the name.

          It's called Zibetto - love this place!

        Thanks for the tip. Used the Bottega Del Vino on a couple of occasions when I was over. The coffee was excellent.

          Oh good! I had a breakfast meeting there on Tuesday so have had a recent fix.
