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
