Coffee is the fuel of NYC, and no one knows this better than the fast-moving residents of the Financial District. A real New Yorker has their favorite spot for Sunday brunch, the inside scoop on the newest happenings in their neighborhood, and an activity for every season, but having a go-to coffee shop is always their first priority.
Here are the best ones in FiDi, Manhattan’s most dynamic neighborhood:
1. Bluestone Lane, 30 West Broad Street
A slice of Australia’s famous coffee culture in FiDi, Bluestone Lane serves up the highest quality espresso and brewed coffee in the neighborhood. Housed in a repurposed art deco vestibule on Broad Street, this shop’s eccentrically welcoming vibe is the perfect place to stop in for a to-go cup or sit for a while with a delicious avo-smash toastie.
2. Birch Coffee, 8 Spruce Street
This newly opened location of the popular New York neighborhood shop strives to be a refreshing break from the filling stations for commuter traffic that coffee spots have become. Order a specialty drink from one of their expert baristas and enjoy the customer-driven atmosphere that founders Jeremy Lyman and Paul Schlader have created.
3. Blue Spoon Coffee, 90 William Street
More spacious than their original Chambers Street location, this shop on William Street serves up beautifully brewed Intelligentsia coffee and and Balthazar and Ceci-Cela pastries. Come for the drinks and food but stay for the warm atmosphere and people-watching out of its lovely front windows.
4. Fika, 66 Pearl Street
This Swedish chocolatier and café’s sleek interior design and locally roasted coffee is a welcome respite from the bustling confusion of FiDi streets. If you’re looking for a slightly more upscale coffee experience, this is the place to go.
5. La Colombe, 67 Wall Street
A staple in New York City, La Colombe’s FiDi outpost has the same sophisticated cool vibe and signature coffee you expect to find at each of its locations. Try the draft latte, the first-ever iced latte on tap, to wake you up for your busy day.
