270 Lafayette St

New York, NY 10012

Founded in 1994 near Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square, La Colombe Torrefaction sold its coffee beans wholesale to New York restaurants before bringing its retail cafes to the area. This high-ceilinged, light-filled Soho stop is one of a few downtown outposts known for its third-wave coffee and croissants made by local bakeries. Walk in anytime of day and you'll see well-dressed (and usually beautiful) customers flipping through The New York Times as they sip brews that range from the chocolatey Corsican to the nutty Nicaraguan.
