New York #coffeetime

The Elk CoffeeViete, kde na cestách najlepšie spoznáte miestnu kultúru a nájdete najlepšiu atmosféru? V kaviarniach! Takých tých malých, kde sa zbiehajú susedia na svoje ranný šálok tmavej kávy, kde ich psy pobehujú pomedzi stoly a vy sa zmôžete len na užívanie prítomného okamihu.
Tak, ako sa na našich cestách vyhýbame známemu fast foodu, vyhýbame sa aj veľkým sieťam kaviarní a oveľa radšej objavujeme menšie lokálne podniky, s vlastným príbehom a charakteristickým vyžarovaním. Niekoľko skvelých miest sme objavili aj v New Yorku…

Do you know where is the best place to get to know the local culture and find the best atmosphere? In cafes! We mean those small ones where you can see converging neighbours for their morning cup of dark coffee with their dogs running through the tables when you are just enjoying this little present moment.
Just as we avoid the famous fast food on our trips, we also avoid big cafes and we are more likely to discover smaller local businesses with their own story and characteristic radiation. We’ve also found such great places in New York…

The Elk

The Elk CoffeeNáš favorit na adrese 128 Charles Street nás okúzlil už na fotografiách (rešerš pred každou cestou je povinná aktivita!) a pri samotnej návšteve sme nevedeli, kam sa skôr pozrieť. Krásný minimalistický dizajn, káva a sladkosti od lokálnych výrobcov, množstvo dizajnových časopisov z každého kútu sveta… Proste najkrajšia kaviareň našej prvej návštevy NY a istá zastávka pri ďalšom výlete.

Our favourite one at 128 Charles Street has already charmed us from the photos (searching before each trip is a must-have activity!). During our visit we did not know where to look first. Beautiful minimalist design, coffee and sweets from local manufacturers, a number of design magazines from every corner of the world… Just the prettiest coffee shop if our first NY visit and a 100% stop on the next trip. And the best in the end: it’s just a stone’s throw away from 66 Perry street, yes, the Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment 😉

Ground Support Café

Ground Support CaféNaozaj rušné miesto s vynikajúcou kávou nájdete na 399 West Broadway. V kaviarni sme strávili jedno (takmer celé) upršané dopoludnie a okrem kávy si pochutnali aj na skvelých muffinoch a iných mňamkách. Táto kaviareň predstavuje typický New York. Je rušná, miestami hlučná a všetci sú v nej veľmi busy. Zároveň má však niečo do seba, čo človeka nadchne 🙂

A really bustling place with great coffee can be found at 399 West Broadway. In the café we spent one (almost whole) afternoon, and in addition to the coffee, we enjoyed delicious muffins and other yummies. This café is typical New York. It is busy, sometimes noisy and everyone is in a hurry. At the same time, it has something what makes people excited 🙂

Black Fox Coffee Co

Dokonalý industriálny charakter interiéru, vzdušný priestor, skvelé cappuccino a kôpky Drift magazínu. Nič viac k šťastiu nie je treba.

During our visit of southern part of Manhattan where glass skyscrapers and businessmen in superslim suits dominate, you can not miss a visit to Black Fox Coffee Co. Perfect industrial character of the interior, airy space, great cappuccino and Drift magazine. Nothing more to happiness is needed.

Culture Espresso

Culture Espresso Culture EspressoV úplnom srdci Manhattanu (pár metrov od Empire) je ukrytá malá kaviarnička Culture Espresso, kde nás privítali štyri mladé dámy za barom a uvarili nám strašne lahodné Flat White-y. Balíček ich kávy cestoval aj s nami domov 🙂

In the very heart of Manhattan (a few meters from the Empire State Building) there is a small Culture Espresso Café where four young ladies have welcomed us at the bar and made us terribly delicious flat white. A pack of their coffee beans traveled with us home too 🙂

Playground Coffee Brooklyn

Playground Coffee Shop Playground Coffee ShopNa rozmedzí Williamsburgu a Brooklynu nájdete dizajnový obchod, komunitné miesto a kaviareň v jednom. Po tom, čo sme zmokli cestou z Williamsburgu, nám slečna za barom pripravila dokonalé a silné corto, na ktoré spomíname dodnes… Hneď by sme si ho dali znova!

Až bude mať niekto z vás cestu do New Yorku, určite navštívte niektoré, z vyššie spomenutých miest. Každé z nich má svoj nezameniteľný charakter a skvelú atmosféru.
Objavili ste nejakú zaujímavú kaviareň počas svojich ciest aj vy? Napíšte nám svoj tip do komentáru! 🙂

Between Williamsburg and Brooklyn you will find a designer shop, a community site and a café, all in one. After we got wet on the way from Williamsburg, the lady behind the bar prepared us perfect and powerful corto that we still remember.. Now we want to have it again!

When someone of you will have a trip to New York, you should definitely visit some of the places mentioned above. Each of them has its own distinctive character and great atmosphere.
