Partners — West Village
44 Charles St New York, NY 10014
A West-Village-shaped wedge of a café, whose bar space is literally a triangle of a workspace, this multipurpose outlet of Toby's Estate features a café up top and full-fledged cupping lab and brew school beneath. Whether you're diving in-depth into coffee cupping and origin studies or simply popping in for a flat white and quick snack, Toby's offers yet another choice for West Village coffee lovers in this adorably cluttered landscape. An accent brick wall is adorned with painted doodles of drum roasters, and elegant European tile design decorates the bar front. Add in miniature stool-and-bench seating and you might as well be in an adult coffee playground.
This play space comes with a good selection of pour-overs to choose from, along with an espresso-milk menu, a seasonal specialty, plus Matcha Bar matcha (try a shot of it for a few bucks) and chai. Non-dairy alternatives include almond and soy milk, and pastries are provided by the trusty Ovenly bakery, along with a small bites brunch menu that ends at 2:00pm.
