Plowshares Coffee

2730 Broadway, New York, NY 10025

Editor's Review

For years now, Plowshares Coffee has been quietly roasting fine beans just north of the city in the Ramapo Valley, purveying them to fine food stores and the odd café. Now, the roaster's launched a café as boutique as you'd expect: a dark, handsome sliver of a space on Broadway between 104th and 105th streets, with just enough seating to enjoy a pause and an exceptional coffee. The store is comfortable, but too small – and without WiFi or a bathroom – to really camp out. But the drinks on offer will make it worth the trip.

Drip and espresso are joined by nitro cold brew and a scant selection of pastries; admire the floodlight lighting fixtures once you've taken your gaze off the seafoam green custom Slayer espresso machine. With this Upper West Side location, you can expect a crowd in the morning grabbing coffee before hopping the train downtown, followed by a parade of Columbia University students and professors, mixed with the usual uptown riff-raff.
