Wow. I'm quite impressed by this coffee shop! The coffee beans go through these pipes and its made fresh. It's probably one of the best coffees I've had, the only downside is the price, of course. Hazelnut with almond milk (~$6)- This was the smallest...More

My son and I stopped by The Roasting Plant for coffee and ended up staying for an hour just watching all the beans shoot through the vacuum tubes as they were roasted and used to make lattes. Highly recommend if you like science!

With the serious roasting tubes on display I expected the Americano to be above average, but it was a bland wash and a disappointment. There are a few tables here, but it’s more of take out place. I will be heading up to the coffee...More

Nothing like fresh ground coffee beans and a welcoming atmosphere to start your day. I visit as often as 3 times a week and always good.

Just comfortable with a great cup of Joe! The owner (?) showed me how to select the proper coffee beans and then made me a great cup. Had a piece of banana bread which was awesome! Give it a try.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
