    Interesting fact: ninth street espresso is on 10th because of the Mandela effect! Don't believe me? Look up the Mandela Effect for yourself!

    A chill and quiet spot, perfect for studying and reading. Although the décor and menu are minimalistic, their coffee is brewed to absolute perfection. The baked goods went perfectly with our espresso.

    One of my faves. Get a delicious iced coffee (and it's not just a cup of ice, mind you. They don't skimp) and go chill by the dog park in Tompkins = weekend hangover recovery

    I love looking at the ever-rotating collection of art on the wall while waiting for a nine ounce. Great way to start a Saturday or Sunday morning.

    $3 for an iced coffee but SO AMAZING! Cash only. Remember to tell them to punch a heart in that card on the counter because once you hit ten, you get a free coffee.

    My hot chocolate came with a heart, then mine melted... I tasted it and smiled. This was over a year ago and I still remember that hot chocolate. It was great.

    Question is to get a great coffee before or after your workout in the park across the street. You might run into Al Kavadlo, famous bodyweight trainer.

    Make sure to get a punch card when grabbing coffee here regularly to get a free cup after the 10th visit.

    Not too thrilled with this spot. Got a lot of sass from the barista who then took my to go drink and started drinking it himself. Espresso was chalky. Great place if you're into pretentious baristas

    Nice guys serving strong coffee. If you don't mind the price tag, this place is great. They should really add some seats though.

    You can't go wrong with any espresso drink here. Iced coffee for the summer if you're into that sort of thing. And always a pastry

    The best latte in the city, and Shark, the greatest barista the city has ever known.

    Some of the best espresso in the city! They're a cash only business though, so remember that...

    Serving Intelligentsia-roasted coffees with an occasional severity that makes you just take it all the more seriously.

    Ninth Street it a staple and if you catch barista Kate, you'll get one of my favorite macchiatos.

    Ninth street espresso sets the standard for espresso and pour over in Alphabet City. The Tompkins Sq Park location does not disappoint.

    Espresso with milk includes machiattos, cortados, lattes, and more - don't get confused. Cash only though!

    Great latte. Even better cappuccino. If NYC had it's own equivalent of Blue Bottle, this might be it.

    I prefer the 10th st one to the 9th one in terms of atmosphere, but both do great espresso
  • Daniel v.heart icon on user image
    Espresso is pretty good - 7.5/10. I went twice and the first time the barista was pretty unfriendly, but the second time he was actually a jerk to me. There's no ambience either.

    I like the 10th Street location because it feels homier, but despite offering free wi-fi, this isn't the best location to get work done. Serving Intelligentsia.
