Great, High-end and Unique Downtown Coffee shop
My good friend (who will be visiting from Los Angeles) loves and knows her high-end and unique coffee houses/shops. She'll be visiting me in a couple of weeks and I want to bring her to a great coffee house/shop. Any suggestions for where we should go? NYC Geography isn't an obstacle!
There is a plethora of them in NYC these days, I assume your friend is an espresso person?
Stumptown in the Ace Hotel
9th Street Espresso (multiple locations in Manhattan)
Joe the Art of Coffee (multiple locations in Manhattan)
Jack's Stir Brewed
Skip the Mud Truck, it's not really that great, but if you see the Van Leeuwen Coffee & Ice Cream Truck around, they pull a good shot of espresso.
