    An Australian coffee oasis amidst the midtown culinary desert. Get a flat white and avocado toast with pumpkin seeds and pepper.

    The best coffee and bites in Midtown, dare I say it Manhattan. Go for a capp (full-fat, live a little) pair it with a PBJ, make your friend order the Avacado Smash. Perfect mix of sweet and savory.

    A little taste of Melbourne in the heart of New York City. Great coffee (made the way it should be!) and classic Australian food to match. Can't go wrong with Vegemite on toast!

    They serve counter culture beans! Great pour-over. My past go to place when I worked nearby. The staffs become your friends when you're a regular. Crowded at lunch but the lunch food is great too.

    The food is great here! I got avocado toast and my sister got Spanish omelette and both are delicious. Coffee is good too. Will come back and absolutely recommend.

    1st of the now many Aussie coffee houses that pairs amazing espresso drinks with great food that goes beyond just your typical pastries. The "Little Collins st" sign was given by the Melbourne mayor!

    Avocado smash is delicious , good quality avocado and fresh. Cheese not overpowering and chili flakes give it a nice kick. Oh and peppy as excellent crunch Nothing left on plate.

    Unique selections, great coffee and good ambience in general❤️ such a tiny place but worth it. Their macchiato with the PBJ toast is the best combination ❤️

    A great little coffee bar with very good breakfast and lunch options. The flat white is really good and can confirm all other reviews - The avocado-feta sandwich is awesome.

    The Sweet Uncle Fred, get it. The combination of banana bread, ricotta, honey, and berries is heavenly. They make a great flat white too, much better than your average coffee.

    Breakfast smash: avocado + feta mash, chili flakes, pepitas on hearty toast. Cold brew on the side. Yes.

    Best flat white you’ll get in NYC. Makes me miss my life in Sydney where I was surrounded by amazing coffee.

    Amazing breakfast spot. Smashed avocado toast with feta cheese and poached eggs & a pour over were top notch! Tough to get a seat, but worth the wait. Super friendly staff make it a great place to be.

    The most delicious coffee I've ever had. Don't be fooled by the smaller sizes- the coffee is strong! The avo toast is also worth a mention- especially with an egg on top.

    A must for breakfast takeout. Grabbing a table is impossible. The "Pick Me Up" is my goto breakfast sandwich. But add the "Sweet Uncle Fred" to whatever you will make your day.

    What to Order: A piccolo latte, a traditional Australian drink with a double shot of espresso and a small amount of steamed milk. It’s similar to a cortado.

    I loved how small but also how astonishing everything was. Starting from the barista looks and attitude to the plates presentation and in the top of all the hight quality of there coffee.

    A midtown treat, Collins hand crafts delicious espresso drinks and pour over coffee. There is also a kitchen providing unique sandwich & salad options; I recommend the roast chicken with a cold brew!

    Little Collins Café not only serves up coffee of a quality that is hard to match elsewhere in New York, but also pairs the liquid delights with outstanding Aussie café culture inspired dishes.

    This is the best Australian specialty coffee in NYC hands down! Try their PB&J toast and avocado toast too! Staff are very friendly and skilled despite crazy crowds around 2pm.

    Solid addition to Midtown with great coffee, great food and great snacks. The Smash (avocado, feta, chillis, pepitas on toast) is a brekky fave! Go here for a work break coffee or post-MoMA.

    This place is tiny, but serve a mean flat white and have a great Aussie cafe menu. The Sweet Uncle Fred (banana bread with ricotta and berries) was excellent.

    Avocado toast ftw!! Properly brewed coffee is refreshing. They brew counter culture coffee, an excellent roaster that is hard to find in ny. Try the Idido if the have it - herbal and floral!

    This Aussie spot is known mostly for its flat whites and avo toast, but give the iced latte a chance, too. It’s smooth with just the right amount of milk. Read more

    Probably the best little coffee shop in Midtown. It gets crowded pretty quickly. Go to the bar and admire their brewing setup after you order your coffee, it's integrated into the counter.

    Avocado Benedict - either Bacon or Salmon - is to die for. You can have a hard time looking for a table or a space in the counter though.

    The coffee's great but finding a table on the weekend is tougher than making it to the mainland from Manus Island. Get drinks here, food elsewhere.

    top 3 flat white in the city 👍🏼👍🏼 too small for working - even eating is a bit uncomfortable due to small tables. but get FW to go and savor it while walking around the city!

    A true win in midtown. Lovely cafe with great food and friendly service. Avocado smash is delish. Go for a morning run in the park and grab bfast w/a friend here after.

    Sydney in Manhattan! One of the only proper flat whites I've found in the US. Great espresso, cute Australian staff, and great lookin' breakfast and lunch bites.

    My flat white and olive oil spice cake were both great. Pretty crowded and hard to guarantee finding a seat even during a weekday midday though.

    I adore this place. Just going there makes me feel right, no matter how bad of a day I am having. The coffee is just great. Highly recommended. My favorite: flat white to stay.

    The iced coffee is strong, smooth and just ever so slightly sweet. (I drink my coffee black). comes in one size which is probably a medium in most places. And the straw is solid. A+

    Food is fresh and tasty. Most of the sandwiches include eggs so you'd need to them to enjoy the food. Nice vibe and pleasant atmosphere. Place is cozy so shouldn't be a big group going

    Convenient for those commuting. Avocado smash is good but no different than what you’d make at home & yogurt is dec. If you’re seeking legit coffee you’ll be happier with Birch Coffee a few blocks up.

    Just opened today! Delicious menu and friendly staff. Try the Sweet Uncle Fred--toasted banana bread with ricotta, strawberries, honey, and toasted almonds--and a piccolo latte. Happiness.

    Probably the best coffee in Manhattan. They know how to make a great espresso and flat white. Not for when you're in a rush, better to savour the taste!

    Milk and cookies are the best, gyro and turkey confit yum, and topped with a coffee drink because they're all amazing.

    This is my favorite coffee place. The iced latte is like a party in my mouth. The chicken schnitzel and the other sandwiches are all amazing and tasty.
