El Rey

100 Stanton Street, New York, NY 10002

Editor's Review

Coffee shop with great food by day, restaurant with great coffee by night, the LES' El Rey is one of the city's discreet coffee kings. Chef Gerardo Gonzalez offers fresh fare with a veggie bent (but don't skip the chorizo) in both day and night menus, along with a full service coffee and espresso bar featuring Counter Culture Coffee. Chocolate-based drinks are made with fudge from sister ice cream parlor Morganstern's, and all drinks can be prepared with alternative milks such as oat, almond, coconut, and soy. 

What could be better than a cortado next to the open-air sidewalk windows on a sunny morning? Staying all day for lunch and dinner, perhaps. The small, intimate space with delicious food and coffee, warm service, and great music will tempt you to linger—but your proximity to the action just outside will likely cause that cup of coffee to propel you into a day of New York adventure.
