Oren's Daily Roast
New York, NY 10003-6700
Village Voice's Description
The line for coffee is always long at Oren's but their roasts come from all over the world, and some are caffeine-heavy enough to give even the most devoted coffee fanatic a twitch. Order the Beowulf Blend for espresso, or pick your own beans from a wall of dispensaries. Pastries are driven in from Balthazar and the number of loose leaf tea options rival that of brewed beans. Ogling the shelves filled with coffee tchotchkes -- mugs emblazoned with Freudian slips or Einstein cartoons -- will make the wait for coffee much, much easier. --Jessica Goodman
Tips from foursquare
This unimposing shop sells its caffeinated beverages with full-bodied (not burnt) taste and sells beans and teas by the pound.
hazelnut iced coffee=nectar of the gods
Iced hazelnut coffee FTW. And it's not fake hazelnut syrup either.
I'm pretty sure the soy caramel latte is what heaven tastes like
Great place to come for a solid cup of coffee, but more importantly the croissants from Balthazar and doughnuts from Doughnut Plant!
