Coffee is the nectar of the New York gods. We’re fairly certain that without coffee Wall Street would crash, colleges would close and Broadway’s curtain would come down. It’s fitting then that the Union Square hub has many opportunities to refuel. Here are our 10 favorite coffee shops to try here.

For the sustainability conscious coffee lover O Cafe is the place to go. From supporting fair-trade and sustainable agriculture to exclusively providing completely compostable consumption wares and building the cafe using sustainable practices, O Cafe raises the bar on what it means to be a ‘green’ business. On top of their commendable commitment to being green, O Cafe’s richly flavored coffee is strong enough to keep you going for hours. Their pastry menu is notable not only because of the quality, but also for the gluten-free options.

With wifi, vegan treats, a top-notch Iced Dirty Chai and a fun low-key atmosphere, The Bean must win some kind of cool award. If you get your coffee to drink in you’ll most likely end up sharing a small table with someone else, but the crowd is always friendly and chilled. The Bean is perfect for a casual coffee (or tea; they have a comprehensive list), while doing some work on your laptop, or (since it is across the street from The Strand Bookstore) reading a book.
