Ninth Street Espresso

Ninth Street Espresso has three coffee bars in the city, and the one I frequent most is located in the bustling food halls of Chelsea Market.

This coffee company is very discreet. Hidden in Chelsea, East Village, and Alphabet City, there is no store front signage so keep a look out for their coffee cup logo. If you get lost, let your senses guide you to the incredible coffee aromas. Their coffee is rich and bold in flavor, and is always perfectly creamy.

Ninth Street Espresso arguably has the best latte in New York City, so don’t be disheartened if there is a long line. It merely reflects how insanely delicious their coffee is.

Like most coffee bars, there is limited seating in all three locations. Chelsea offers no customer only seating, so you will have to scramble to find a table within the markets (not an easy task on weekends) This is perfectly fine if you are in need of a quick coffee on the go, but if you prefer something more cosy and comfortable, perhaps save Ninth Street for another day**

**A savvy coffee connoisseur would never save Ninth Street for another day

Eleni’s

Eleni’s is an exquisite cupcake store located in the fabulously delicious Chelsea Market.

Chelsea Market is a food lovers dream. Housing a plethora of incredible restaurants and food stores, the chic undercover market has something to please every palate. For sweets, I always run as fast as I can to Eleni’s.

Eleni’s specialize in amazing cupcakes and quirky cookies. I love this cupcake boutique because their frosting is perfectly sweet but not too heavy and their cupcakes are always fresh and fluffy. One of their most popular cupcakes is raspberry, so be sure to try it.

If you are visiting the city and want a fun gift to take home for friends, Eleni’s also sell cute New York themed cookies. Their cookies are a welcomed changed from the standard NYC souvenirs that are sold in Midtown.

Eleni’s is sweet and lovely, the staff are always smiling and you will definitely be smiling once you taste these divine cupcakes.
