Always on multiple “best coffee shops” in NYC lists, Cafe Grumpy is almost 10 years in serving up a great cup of coffee. So, I paid a visit to their Chelsea location for some Joe.
Cozy, yet spacious, with a railroad style store, there are plenty of tables and even a backyard garden to sit and enjoy your coffee or cafe snack. They have a seasonal coffee menu, focusing on quality and sustainable beans.
I ordered a Cappuccino, complete with a lovely floret. It was a little cup of delight, smooth, rich flavor, and again, I feel like the foam art just always makes everything taste better.
Name: Cafe Grumpy
Location: 224 West 20th Street, NYC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? For sure. The cafe itself is a great spot to get a coffee to go, or, take a seat and catch up.
Would I recommend it? Yes, great coffee and good vibes. And if you’re not near Chelsea, they have five other locations around the city and Brooklyn.
