You wouldn’t know it, but apparently spring is upon us! With a new month comes new additions to the CUPS family in our **now three!!!** cities across the country (NYC, Philly, & SF). Check ’em out, grab a coffee, and inaugurate them with your favorite coffee pun (that part is optional, but always appreciated).
Woops! BakeShop, Several locations
Woops! is a much loved CUPS cafe, and now they are accepting CUPS at several more locations, including two for you Jersey folk (Willowbrook Mall & Short Hills Mall). The pristine white environment coupled with delicious cookies and baked goods (their macaroons are amazing!) makes Woops! a great spot to sit, relax, read a book, and sip some coffee.
Adventure Cafe, Lower East Side
Adventure Cafe is a special spot. It features Dough doughnuts and Cafe Grumpy coffee, and doubles as a starting point for outdoor and adventurous travel throughout the city (details here). With just a couple cozy tables, this joint may not be your go-to spot for meetings or work, but what other coffee shop can you rent a surfboard at?!
The Lazy Llama Coffee Bar, East Village
From the owners of long-time CUPS cafe Jolly Goat comes the Lazy Llama. With Stumptown coffee and a charming location, what more can we ask for? Oh wait, window seating. Icing on the cake.
Usagi NY, DUMBO
This sprawling DUMBO art gallery also houses a Japanese Cafe! It’s generally quiet and a great place to kick back and do some reading or work while enjoying a coffee or matcha. Usagi also features a collection of Japanese teas.
Read and Eat, Mt. Airy and Roxbury
Read and Eat is not only a coffee shop, but a community hub. With book clubs, free concerts, and theater, this spot is one you are going to want to spend a lot of time at! Did we mention it’s large, full of interesting books, and totally beautiful?
Franny Lou’s Porch, Kensington
Warm and friendly staff, a great cup of coffee, and delicious eats define Franny Lou’s Porch. This cozy spot in Kensington also doubles as a community space with events almost every day of the week including massage therapy, astrology, open mic nights, vision boarding, and more! If you are looking for a side of community with your coffee, this may just be your new favorite spot.
Wildcraft Espresso Bar
Repeat after me: sheep’s milk. Wildcraft Espresso Bar is everything you never knew you needed from a coffee bar: sheep’s milk lattes, bone broth, and even sheep’s milk ice cream! Try something new, it may just be what your morning needed!
