New Trendy Coffee Places – Visiting New York NoHo

So there’s a new approach to art and coffee in the mingling of forces in New York that will really appeal to people that are interested in lovely coffee and lovely art. There’s a few well known places now and they are getting big shout outs online in this article I was reading the other day and its making me want to take an easy loan from Ferratum and take off to New York from NZ ¬†One of the places is:

Gasoline Alley Coffee:

Gasoline Coffee in new york is my new destination for my trip to NY

It’s a nice place that has gotten a really good review in a neighbourhood that has been quickly gentrified as usual in urban centers: “where NoHo used to be populated with car mechanics and gas stations, it is now filled with charming coffee shops like Gasoline Alley. This industrial-chic coffee shop offers a bright and inviting space with big windows that open up in the summer, providing the petite shop with an open, airy feel.” It looks as though it would be a really nice place to drink good coffee in the heart of New York when visiting after a day of shopping or going out and walking around the city. If anyone else has any other good shoutouts please don’t be afraid to contact me I’ll make a review of the place. Cheers.


Home town treats

As I keep mentioning, the cafe scene in Auckland is as good if not better that any other place I’ve been. We’re blessed with perfect weather for enjoying lazy days relaxing over a lazy breakfast with several truly wonderful cappuccinos. There really is no need to visit a chain cafe, even if your desperate you can turn to yelp and find a decent independent nearby.

The closest I’ll come to a chain is the delicious line up that is the Hip Group – boasting seven cafes turning out heart stopping good espressos and mouth watering food. Sure, they’re not the cheapest, but as my favourite Cafe on Kohi provides such brilliant ocean views that its worth that indulgence.

cold drip hipster coffee

I’ve read that as a city we now boast at least 16 different roasters, and are pushing the boundaries of technique as quick as those great hipster towns such as Berlin or London, embracing methods such as cold drip to test our palettes. While I’m still obsessed by the perfect macchiato, I’m so impressed by the work of Atomic Coffee I’m willing to be their guinea pig any day!

As for my all time favourite cafe, well, if I gave that secret away it might start getting difficult to find a seat. But, I will say it’s a safe bet you’ll find me in Newmarket most days!
