Joe — Columbus Ave.
514 Columbus Ave., New York, NY 10024
Despite its tranquil, neighborly surroundings in the residential Upper West Side, this tres-petit Joe location is fairly busy on the regular. Thanks to its small cafe front, a line can regularly be seen out the door, but don't let that stop you from visiting this consistently excellent NYC staple. Stop by for a brew and a fresh Underwest donut before making your way to Central Park, as this Joe stands a mere blocks away – perfect for something to sip on in between the trees.
With simple decor of white and brown-tiled walls, Joe keeps everything from the menu to the interior simple and to-the-point, maintaining charm in the chaos of the cafe. A solid menu of hot and cold beverages gives you standard espresso-milk beverage options (non-dairy options include soy, oat, and almond milk), along with a couple rows of pastries provided by local bakeries and partners Union Square Events. While there are still a few tables and chairs to sit and converse at, this may not be the best spot to perch a laptop – no WiFi here.
