April 24th, 2019 | The Flavors of New York
Most of us can't start working until our coffee does. In order to work in top form, we need good-quality and perfectly brewed coffee. This isn't easy to find when commercial chains are located around every corner. But don't worry. We have the scoop on the best coffee shops in Midtown, close to Royalton New York.
Location: Bryant Park, 54 W 40th Street, New York, NY 10018
Next time you’re walking around Bryant Park, stop by Blue Bottle Coffee. This brand has been going strong for almost 20 years for a reason. Their coffee is just too good. It started out as a small roasting company in California and is now an internationally-acclaimed brand that specializes in selling fresh coffee at its peak flavor.
Location: Midtown East, 400 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017
An Australian-inspired brand, Bluestone Lane is expanding and the world is a better place for it. Their decor is somewhat reminiscent of a relaxing day at the beach. Who wouldn’t want that in the middle of their work week? Their artisanal coffee is more than just a caffeine fix, it’s an experience. If you need a quick bite, they also serve healthy snacks and pastries.
Location: Café Grumpy Grand Central Terminal, 89 East 42nd Street, Lexington Passage, New York, NY 10017
The name may be a little weird, but if you consider how many of us feel until we’ve taken that first sip of coffee on a Monday morning, then, you get it. Born in Greenpoint Brooklyn, Café Grumpy has seduced New Yorkers with its specialty coffee, welcoming atmosphere, and community involvement.
Location: 800 Second Avenue, between 42nd and 43rd Street, New York, NY 10017
Ground Central not only serves excellent quality coffee, but does so in spaces that pay tribute to New York. Their vibe is hip and current while maintaining the classic coffee culture. Try their drip coffee and tuck into one of their many salads, sandwiches, cakes and pastries.
Now that we’ve taken care of your morning coffee, let’s talk about an after work pick-me-up. Bar 44 is located in the heart of Midtown and serves an ample selection of wine, beers, spirits and signature cocktails.
