10 Coffeeshops in NYC That Will Definitely Wake You Up

New York City Food + Drink

We call it “The City That Never Sleeps” because we’re all so jacked up on caffeine, we couldn’t nap if we tried. Luckily there is no shortage of coffee dispensaries; some are best for working, others will whip up a cappuccino quick enough for you to run out the door and hop on the subway. I can guarantee you won’t miss Starbucks after trying these drip joints out.


 FIKANew York, United StatesThis is where I go when I’m craving a bit of Scandinavia. Their cardamom cinnamon buns are amazing and their coffee is as good as you’d get in Norway or Sweden. They also make their own chocolates, dope! #coffee #cafe


 MamanNew York, United StatesThis is by far my favorite cafe in all of New York. The setting is country-French chic and their baked goods are beyond delicious. I crave their lavender hot chocolate and their lavender blueberry bread daily. #coffee #cafe

Madman Espresso

 DTUTNew York, United StatesIf you’re on the upper east side in Manhattan and craving some caffeine, this is the absolute beat choice. Large by NYC standards, this relaxed cafe-by-day, bar-by-night has a distinctive hipster feel, with wooden tables and mismatched couches. Good coffee, a decent selection of beers of draft, and a fun selection of cocktails, the music is always good, and the atmosphere is friendly. Great to work during the day, wifi turns off at 5 on weekdays and all day weekends allowing distraction free socializing or reading. Plus trivia every Monday! #coffee #free-wifi #open-late #casual #bar #beer #friendly #hipster #trivia
