10 Loveliest Coffee Shops in NYC

Updated: Mar 15, 2019

I love a good coffee shop. A cup of hot drink with some pastries, so easy to spend half a day there. Besides a relaxing, cozy vibe, I'm always looking for creative decorations and designs in coffee shops. NYC never disappoints me on that, cause look what I've found!


Here are 10 gorgeous coffee shops I absolutely adore in the city!


Urban Backyard

This is one of my all-time favorite coffee shops in the city! Each season they have different decorations at the shop front. All the cute little details give me such a good mood every time I walk pass by this place. Their pastries are also ridiculously adorable. Look at these cactus and succulent cupcakes.

Address: 180 Mulberry St, New York, NY 10012



Stonefruit Expresso+ Kitchen

A bright, cozy coffee shop with lots of adorable plants. I feel so relaxed as soon as I walk in. The room is the back is spacious and surrounded by plants. It is a nice spot to do work or hang out with friends. It does usually get busy in the morning. The avocado smash and daily pastries are delicious.

Address: 1058 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205




Bakeri

Speaking of the coffee shop that has the most beautiful wallpaper, yes it is Bakeri. The decoration is just beautiful and homey. I can't tell you how much I'm in love with the interior of this place. The food is really delicious too. They have amazing baked goods and so many choices on the menu, savory and sweet.

Address: 105 Freeman St, Brooklyn, NY 11222




Homecoming

This is another coffee shop and flower shop in one. They also have many cute gifts here. Besides that, there are Blue Bottle coffee and Dough donuts. I am so in love with this warm, bright atmosphere here.

Address: 107 Franklin St, Brooklyn, NY 11222


Bluestone Lane

Bluestone Lane is an Australian-inspired coffee shop. There are many locations in NYC. I often go to their locations in West Village and Astor Place. Both of them are clean and relaxing. I especially love their avocado smash and banana bread. The banana bread is hard to top! I also recommend their Aussie Iced Chocolate. OMG it's gold!

Address: 51 Astor Pl, New York, NY 10003

55 Greenwich Ave, New York, NY 10014



Black Star Bakery& Cafe

If you are near the waterfront of Long Island City, this is the place to grab a coffee. It is a great spot for breakfast or brunch and they offer so many baked goods. The atmosphere is perfect for working or hanging out. Who doesn't like yummy food and plenty of sunshine?

Address: 2-10 50th Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101



Plantshed Cafe at Prince Street

This is my new discovery in Nolita, another flower shop and coffee shop in one. It has a great atmosphere for enjoying coffee and doing work. Being Surrounded by plants always calms me down. Their Almond milk latte is fantastic.

Address: 1 Prince St, New York, NY 10012




Maman Greenpoint

Maman has several coffee shops in the city, and each of them is super stunning. They each have their different characteristics, and yet all embody that rustic and romantic feeling of Maman. I went to the one in Greenpoint and adored the decoration there. This one has a unique industrial vibe, which suits NYC pretty well. Plus there is plenty of space and a second floor with plenty of sunshine. The salad is huge and full of deliciousness. I can't wait to check out all of the Maman locations!

Address: 80 Kent St, Brooklyn, NY 11222


Remi Flower & Coffee

If you are obsessed with flowers and plants like me, this coffee shop is a perfect spot for you. I am obsessed with their rose and lavender latte. Coffee with a touch of floral scent makes the best of the day.

Address: 906 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10017




Pause Cafe

I am a big fan of Moroccan culture. Morocco is one of the most amazing countries I've ever been to. So when I found this Moroccan style coffee shop in NYC, I was so excited. They have the most amazing acai bowls. I love the Moroccan vibe in their decorations. It's a homey, inviting space.

Address: 3 Clinton St, New York, NY 10002
