Gregorys Coffee — 551 Madison Ave
551 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10022, USA
Founded in 2006 by Gregory Zamfotis, the Gregorys Coffee chain has been storming Manhattan (and Brooklyn, and Jersey City, and now DC) for several years, and there are currently more than two dozen locations in the NYC area. They have managed to create a somewhat remarkable system for rolling out new locations without sacrificing quality, and now with a huge roastery in Long Island City, the ubiquitous Gregorys logo—coffee cups where Gregory's eyeglasses should be—may be unstoppable. They are known for their espresso, AeroPress coffee, and delicious cold brew, as well as a full menu that includes smoothies, cold pressed juices, parfaits, pastries, and sandwiches. And while it can be hard to tell the various outlets apart, there is an attention to detail, quality, and presentation throughout the chain that is undeniable.
This location, around the corner from Trump Tower and close to the MoMA, gets its fair share of tourists and office workers, but also attracts a slightly tony crowd from the surrounding residential towers.
