New York has a never-ending number of coffee shops – so much in fact that it can be difficult to pick which one to try. After living in the city for a little while and often making my way back to visit, I think I’ve finally found my favourite one.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters at the Ace Hotel
18 W 29th St.
New York, NY 10001
Stumptown Coffee Roasters in the Ace Hotel is the perfect place to sit down and enjoy a warm cup of coffee. Their cappuccino is by far the best I have ever had – without any hint of bitterness; it is just perfectly velvety and rich. Stumptown also carries a variety of snacks – my favourite being their pretzel-like sandwich filled with cheese, ham and mustard. The Ace Hotel is also worth a mention. Its decor is beautiful – with eclectic furniture, warm colours and a cozy vintage feel.
