With fall weather now upon us, hot cups of coffee are replacing iced lattes as New Yorker’s best accessory, and Team Hawkins has compiled a list of our favorite places to get our caffeine (and pastry) fix.
Toby’s Estate‘s Flatiron location offers a selection of pastries from some of New York’s favorite bakers – think Megpies, Ovenly, Ceci Cela, and Doughnut Plant! With its espresso bar connected to an outpost of the Strand Bookstore, it’s the perfect place to grab a quick pickmeup and peruse the selection of books and magazines!
Located in Bushwick, L’Imprimerie is actually a converted printing house, which is how the French bakery and coffee shop got its name. A small and friendly place, L’Imprimerie’s housemade, small batch baked goods, paired with coffee from Brooklyn-based City of Saints and Spectrum roasters, are always flawless.
An espresso bar and barber shop, Three Seat Espresso’s lattes, which are served in cheery yellow cups, have been highlighted as some of the best New York has to offer. Located in the East Village, it’s a great place to mingle, chat with the lovely Australian couple that owns it, and pet the occasional puppy that comes in to hang out.
Maman on Centre Street is a SoHo staple. The little French café serves the best chai lattes, along with fresh croissants and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies! Cozy and cute, Maman now hosts a beautiful flower shop in their expanded space.
Known for their specialty lattes, Ludlow Coffee Supply is the perfect place to rest up and fuel up with a mid afternoon cup. We highly recommend sipping on a bourbon vanilla latte while you check out their extensive collection of vinyl records.
Located in the Executive Hotel Le Soleil in midtown Manhattan, Trademark Taste + Grind is a dual concept space featuring a front coffee bar (Trademark Grind) and bar & restaurant (Trademark Taste) in the back. Their coffee selection is simple and unpretentious, and their cookies are heavenly!
No matter where you turn to for your daily dose of caffeine, be sure to tag your latte art with #HIPReats and share your favorite coffee recommendations with us!
