With a dynamic list of coffees, La Colombe offers both organic blends and a selection of freshly-ground options, from light to full-bodied. Opt for a dark, chocolaty blend, or go for the medium roast with sweet, fruity, and nutty tones. Alternatively, keep it light with a bright, citrus, tangy roast. The venue is spacious, and serves as a perfect meeting spot for that mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

McNally Jackson

Not your traditional cafe, McNally Jackson also serves as a library. Enjoy a strong cup of freshly-brewed coffee and a pastry while you browse their literary selection and delve into your favorite book. They also offer organic products supplied from the Hudson Valley.


Serving family recipes from the South of France, Maman brings the indulgent flavors of a French bakery to New York City.
