The coffees here are very good and there isn't something they don't do well. The snacks are very tasty too!! The real shame is i've had to take my coffee outside to drink on a few occasions because most of the space is taken by people who were before me and typing into or staring at their laptops! *sighs*

If there is one thing that I miss moving from Berkshire County, Mass to New York City, it would be the quality of Barrington Roaster's coffee. BUT I didn't have to miss it for long: Joe, the art of coffee, serves the delicious, dark, and complex coffee that I was raised on and made my personal religion back home. And boy, do they take an already phenomenal cup of coffee and make it better. Their coffee is delicious and rich, and their lattes are even better. Each barista truly knows how to work that $14,000.00 latte machine and produce the most delicious coffee in the city. Expect crowds and a bit of wait, but that should clue you in to how good it is. I make a point to stop in as much as possible, and never leave disappointed. Have a little patience and a little respect, and you will be well rewarded. I completely disagree with the reviewer writing the coffee as "flat" and the baristas as "blase." Clearly, someone is in need of adjusting their attitudes and expanding their tastes for a fine cup of joe.

Nobody does espresso better. And you are likely to see the most interesting celebs in the city drinking their lattes there.

Unfortunately, many people have succumbed to the Starbuck's myth, that coffee should be seared to add a burned flavor to the drink, masked with enough milk to undo some of the harm, and made extra potent to give bang for the buck. Te problem is, that is not what coffee is about. If you want a real cup of coffee, because you appreciate the flavors and complexity of the beans, the smell of a good roast, and want a good snack on the side (vegan cookies available from a local baker that is terrific) go to Joe's. And, if you are going to be concerned with how the barrista treats you, go buy a french press and stay at home.

blase baristas make weak boring coffee. It's sad, because their other location is fine, but it takes too long to get a thin cup of coffee. i don't know why the place so busy. real shame.
