Good Coffee UWS

crsin Nov 2, 2012 09:32 AM

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.

      The coffee bean has a few locations on the UWS too.

        There's no place that satisfies all criteria at once. Joe on Columbus is best for coffee. Irving Farm is best for working.

          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?
