As the life blood of most New Yorkers, it’s extraordinarily important for us to know where we can get our caffeine fix in any given NYC neighborhood. SoHo is one of Manhattan’s trendiest areas, boasting incredible architecture, innovative restaurants, and cool bars. Here’s our guide to the 10 best cafes in SoHo.

La Colombe

Coffee Shop, American, $$$
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.
