The 26 Best Coffee Shops in NYC
Claire Chan -- who also operates newer addition Bar Beau in Williamsburg -- is behind The Elk, a cozy coffee and lunch haunt offering some of the West Village’s best brews. Chan sources several coffees from Brooklyn’s Parlor Coffee, and she rests her beans for one week after roasting, only brewing them once they’ve reached peak flavor. Beyond coffee, drop in for healthy bites like a cage-free egg and chorizo burrito or tahini-laced kale Caesar.
