Green Grape Annex

I got to explore Fort Greene today and had coffee with a friend at Green Grape Annex! This is a cute neighbourhood coffee shop during the day and bar during the evening.  The inside is spacious filled with people powering through work sessions, catching up with friends or grabbing a bite to eat with their families.

The café offers fresh baked pastries, hearty soups, sandwiches and an evening dessert menu. I loved that everything on the menu is seasonally inspired and made in-house. My friend got a turmeric latte and I tried the drip coffee which was so comforting and absolutely delicious! We took our coffees to go and explored the neighbourhood including the Fort Green Park and the shops on Fulton. I absolutely loved the neighbourhood feel, brownstone buildings and tree-lined streets strewn with crunchy leaves!

Corvo Coffee

Corvo Coffee is a hidden gem in Hell’s Kitchen, just walking distance from my office. Their pastries looked amazing and they serve La Colombe coffee as well. The best part – everything is priced at $2! The inside was not very big with only a few tables on the side and some bar seating looking out the window, so I took my coffee to go but I loved how friendly and welcoming the barista was. She greeted every single customer as if they were regulars and that makes such a difference to me!

I’m so glad I found this well priced / high quality coffee shop and will most definitely be recommending it to others and will visit again!

Culture 36

Culture 36 is a hidden gem in midtown west, fairly close to my office. I stopped in for a quick coffee to go and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of seating inside considering it was a lunch hour during a busy work week! There are two other locations (Culture Espresso and Culture 307) fairly close by as well! 

The vibe is very relaxed and a bit hipster, but the café attracts a varied crowd including business professionals, students and tourists alike. There are tons of reviews on yelp about the cookies here but unfortunately I was not in the mood to try one. Their coffee was definitely very good and so comforting since the weather is finally starting to drop here in the city. This is a great spot to mark for future reference and for coffee breaks with colleagues or client meetings!
