Every day here at Joyride HQ, we sample and rate multiple coffees. As a relatively inexperienced coffee drinker, I like to think I provide a supplementary viewpoint to that of the many coffee aficionados here at Joyride - the perspective of the average American if you will. A lot like Joe the plumber, from the 2008 presidential election. So here's my assessment of a recent coffee sample.
If Italy is known for its espresso, then Little Italy is known for Happy Bones.
Considering it's miniscule size, Lucid Café is incredibly busy. They have coffee, along with other pastries and smoothies. I bought a mocha. It was so good!
It's hard to believe, but considering Perk Kafé is only a few blocks away from Grand Central Station, this little coffee spot is surprisingly laid back and serene.
The Birch Coffee location I visited the other day was a hidden gem in the office-ridden Midtown Manhattan. It's a relatively small café, where they serve both food and coffee. It was quite busy as well, with people having business meetings and a family eating dinner.
Abraço is literally a hole in the wall.
