Old Country Coffee



Old Country Coffee is a hidden gem located in the Hudson Yards area. The atmosphere is so comfy and cozy it’s almost as if you’re sitting in a little chalet somewhere! The menu is pretty extensive with espresso based drinks, seasonal drinks and teas. I had a latte and it did not disappoint! 

They also serve sandwiches and sweets and the can cater corporate events or parties. I loved this place and the fact that the people inside looked like they were just at home! I’ll definitely be coming back for an afternoon coffee break since this spot is so close to my office.

Optimistic Café



Optimistic Café opened in 2017 in the Garment District! It's a hidden gem right off 8th Ave that I was so happy to discover right by my office! I immediately fell in love with the gorgeous tiles, the plant wall and wooden chairs!

The vibe was super inviting and relaxing. While the space was small, there was still some seating available but I didn't have much time so I grabbed my coffee to go. I ordered a flat white which was perfectly balanced and absolutely delicious. The menu had the standard coffee items and some pastries. This is on the pricey side but definitely worth treating yourself to once in a while.

Grindstone Coffee & Donuts


Grindstone Coffee opened in the quaint Hamptons town of Sag Harbor in 2016. They make amazing brioche and cake donuts that look beautiful and taste amazing! We shared some cinnamon sugar donuts and I couldn't stop eating them! I was intrigued by their giant sized party donuts too which they can make for any occasion with a few days notice!

The coffee was also really great here! They make espresso, specialty teas and cold brews. Their menu also includes some lunch items like soups and sandwiches. The space is small so it was perfect to take a coffee to go and continue exploring the town. There was a long lineup when we got there which is a testament to how popular their donuts and coffee are! If you're in the Hamptons, be sure to stop here for a coffee and something sweet!
