Joe — Columbia University, Northwest Corner
550 West 120th, 2nd Floor New York, NY 10027
This marble-clad uptown oasis at first seems to be hidden on the second story of an uber-modern Columbia University building. That is, untill you start looking for a table – good luck finding a seat among the laptoperati (at least this actually is a school) while balancing your coffee and your coursepack.
But what the cafe lacks in terms of elbow room it makes up for with quality: a cut above for a campus coffee shop in any part of the world, with Joe's Brooklyn-roasted espresso and single-origin filter offerings to choose from, along with an assortment of grab-and-go food and sandwiches to accompany the requisite pastry treats and donuts. Don't drink milk? Substitute almond or oat here. Check first before visiting on what may be a federal or academic holiday, as hours may be limited.
