Lost Weekend NYC, Lower East Side. Should Southern California collide with the Lower East Side, something tells me it may look a little like this place. Everyone in Manhattan needs a surfboard, some board shorts and Malin + Goetz grooming products, don’t they? It’s all up for grabs at Lost Weekend NYC, even books and surfboard wax. Did I mention coffee? Blue Bottle Coffee to be precise, the same stuff from SF, now also roasting across the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn.

Birch Coffee, Flat Iron District. Anyone that’s been to the Flatiron District may already know of the Gershwin Hotel, that fashionably trendy red building with teardrop light installations emerging from its façade. Adjacent to the lobby is another Birch Coffee outlet. It’s the same deal with all of their coffee options and addition to that there’s a decent selection of food items. There’s even a small mezzanine room called “The Library” where you can chill with your beverage of choice

Kaffe 1668, Tribeca. This is one of two cafe’s by the same name that happen to be on Greenwich Street. The other is at number 401 a few blocks away. Kaffe 1668 gets its name from the year New Yorkers apparently decided they preferred coffee with their breakfast, over beer. The space here is very easy on the eye. Long, dark and narrow space that’s minimal, industrial and oh-so-Lower Manhattan. A great variety of beans for the espresso.

Oslo Coffee Roasters, Yorkville. There are virtually no seats in this tiny cafe so sitting down with a coffee may not be an option. A few pastries and baked items grace the tiny display cabinet and just about any type of coffee you want is available. Love the macchiato here; perfectly sized, well poured and a good robust kick from those Oslo beans.

MyWayCup Coffee, Murray Hill. This part of 23rd Street won’t win any awards for beauty, and the jackhammering next door to the cafe wasn’t helping either. The macchiati at myWayCup are also done the way I’m not a great fan of. Short espresso topped with foam. At least the milk has been worked to a smooth thick-ish creaminess rather than overworked to a bubbly overheated froth.

Birch Coffee, West Village. I love the idea that the owners deliver their growlers of iced coffee by bike. They’re all about sustainability at Birch, and for those Australians that can only drink flat whites, these guys can look after you.

Macchiato Espresso Bar, Midtown East. Coffee was desperately needed so a quick check on Beanhunter revealed this place just a block from the Chrysler Building.  It was like music to our ears. A couple of short macchiati are ordered, and what was made looked pretty good. I found the beans tasted a little over roasted but at least it was made more like a true macchiato, rather than piccolo latté/noisette or espresso topped with fluffy milk.

Gimme! Coffee, Nolita. These guys cover all bases when it comes down to coffee. Espresso, pour over, drip etc. A well made macchiato and some fine doughnuts to have as well. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the neighbourhood.

Kava Cafe, Meatpacking District. Owner John Saric has Croatian roots, thus naming the cafe Kava, which means coffee. The go-to seemed to be espresso but for those that want it, French press, pour over and drip are available. The cortado and macchiato are made well, and the peaceful courtyard at the back is an ideal escape from the rat race outside.
