Café Grumpy — Lower East Side

13 Essex St., New York, NY 10002

Editor's Review

The smallest Café Grumpy yet, this fourth store of the Greenpoint-based roaster sits across from Seward Park and at the bustling edge of Chinatown, but offers just the right oasis – and very little seating – for a quick coffee stop. Inside this sunny space, you can soak in the light pouring through the windows if you're lucky enough to grab the singular nook in front; you'll be sharing your spot with the indoor plants while sipping from a mug of Grumpy's signature bright orange, bumping knees with the crowds that manages to pack its way inside. 

Like its modest interior, the coffee is also straightforward, with an espresso-drip menu of standard beverages (oat and almond milk are the non-dairy alternatives) alongside a drip coffee and a seasonal special like hot matcha cider. Grab a treat from the pastries provided by local sweets purveyors and continue to make your way through this charming part of the Lower East Side.
