Advice: Open daily.
This East Village café and coffee roastery has been a community hub since opening last summer. Run by passionate owners Sharif Sharifi and Shane Dehkodaei, you’ll find their Benchmark of perfection on order with each espresso beverage coming off the bar.
On my latest visit I had a Cortado and a delicious Double Baked Chocolate Hazelnut Croissant on previous visits I have always had my standout Espresso Macchiato of which is served here with an extra shot of espresso on the side.
You will find a selection of house-baked croissants, almond croissants, savoury scones, sweet scones, brownies and more; as well as sandwiches and more! The café features their roastery which can be seen through the large glass windows, the café seats 16 people with seating upstairs and on the main level. They have drip coffee as well as pour overs, along with their line-up of espresso beverages featuring their own house roasted Benchmark Espresso.
