I think $3 for a small regular coffee is ridiculous, especially when there's a 100 other places that have better coffee for less. This coffee tasted the same as getting it at the corner deli!

Every so often I feel a need for a great cappuccino and I am always sure to find it at Joe's on Columbus. The treat for me is to be able to drink it there, but it's not always possible because so many people love the place. So I take along a renewable cup (to save the trees) and bring... More

Stoped in while walking around NY and had a dirty chai with almond milk. It was amazing ! Outside and inside seating available. Small location, a few tables inside. Definitely recommend !

During the morning there will always be a line here, meaning that this is the place to be for everything coffee. Starbucks who? If you really want a coffee experience, this is the place to be. With not only coffee, but also great tasting pastries and donuts, i highly recommend Joe.

Overcharged. Not so friendly cashier. I was overcharged for a small almond milk cappuccino, the almond milk also tasted burnt. Too bad, the espresso pull seemed really decent. Probably won't try again.

I was recommended by a New Yorker friend to visit Joe's Coffee if I am in town. As an Indonesian who grew up with coffee, though I am not an expert, but I always need a dose of good solid flavour coffee in the morning. The joint is tiny, but packed with people lining up, and every time the door... More

Close to UWS hotel, this became our morning coffee and hot chocolate stop. Lattes were good and lines moved fast.

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
