Good Coffee UWS

Admittedly, UWS is pretty foreign to me, so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm going to be heading up there tomorrow to run a few errands and was hoping to find a coffee shop that not only makes good coffee, but is a decent place for getting some work done (i.e., seating, laptop-friendly).

Searching the board, there doesn't seem to be much on the topic, so was hoping someone could recommend. Anywhere from 90th down to 60th would be fine.

      Thanks. Does Joe not have much seating? If it changes anything, I don't usually stay more than an hour or two if working...not the type to camp out all day

        No wifi and not a whole lot of seating.

          Dare I suggest Starbucks right next door to the Empire Hotel?
