Flat white on cool Monday visiting NYC. Really just trying to get enough words in to post review. Place is Quaint, coffee is tasty, music is loud and energetic, staff was pleasant. Let's see how many time I visit here in the next week, definitely coming back.

Being an Australian in NYC the coffee was an adjustment (I learnt to love cheap black bodega coffee, however) but Birch Coffee was a delightful surprise that I stumbled across. Thoroughly enjoyed my reasonably priced breakfast and coffee.

A busy little cafe with really good coffee. Pastries were nothing to write home about but worth visiting if you're looking for good coffee.

So I went to another Birch location and got a latte with hemp milk and thought it was fine, but nothing special. I kept hearing such good things about this place so I figured I should give it another shot. I went to this location and got the Kyoto Cold Brew, which is supposed to be one of their best... More

Best coffee in the area, though Gregory's at 66th Street is good too. I had a cortado every day. Loved it. Doughnuts looked delicious but I abstained.

My iced latte was decent but my husband didn't like his iced coffee. He said it was bitter with aftertaste.

This is the first coffee shop my husband and I would pass each morning on our way to the subway station, during our recent trip to NYC. The place itself is very cool and the coffee and doughnuts are delicious. The staff were also lovely and gave us good recommendations for things to do during our time in New York.

Birch coffee is a small space that produces coffee with big flavour. As a classic Melbourne coffee snob I was wary of drinking most American coffee having made that mistake once. So when I walked past a small coffee shop where the smell was enticing and the queue was long I decided to take the plunge. And boy was I... More

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.
