cafe/bakery/coffeehouse near Grand Central?
meeting a friend for coffee near Grand Central, but don't know that area at all (well, except for the naturopath drugstore and my dentist). Would appreciate recommendations for anyplace within 10-12 minutes of GC.
Thanks in advance,
not sure if inside the grand central is ok. but there are public seating downstairs of gc. there are quite a few places that sell coffee and/or baked goods. i like cucina & co. there is a restuarant connected to it that you can sit down and order coffee and desserts. other than that, there are juniors, little pie company, starbucks, ciao bella, joe, hot & crusty, oren's, zaros, etc.
Macchiato Espresso Bar, 141 E 44th St, is half a block east of the Lexington Ave exit of Grand Central. I still recall, fondly, the latte I had there last December.
Personally, I always find the food court in the lower level of Grand Central Terminal to be dirty and depressing. However, there is a brand new Joe the Art of Coffee (local NYC chain with great espresso) in the Graybar Passage in GCT itself. Not sure if they have any seating, as it might be more of a to-go place.
