My husband and I are latte snobs. One a day for sure! We went to Chelsea Market and really wanted a latte. Kind of bummed that Ninth St Espresso didn't have a latte on the menu. But, alas there was not another coffee place with a latte on the menu and the coffee did smell wonderful so we ordered -... More

Cool, relaxed, unassuming, non-rushed place. Go if you want to coffee, maybe a pastry and have something on hand to read at leisure.

I’m a bit of a coffee addict and I have to say that Ninth Street Espresso does the best coffee that I have ever tasted. The place has good Wi-Fi, nice seating and the coffee is excellent. What more do you need?

Stayed in an apartment across the road during a two week, first-time visit to New York. This coffee was the best I had in all of New York. I had one almost every single day. It is almost the best coffee I have had, ever.

Too hot, burnt beans, weak etc etc; yes that's the typical NYC coffee. But not at Ninth St. We found it and had two coffees straight up it was that good. Great service and they even gave us a tip for a few other places. Highly highly recommend

This latte was the creamiest and freshest I've ever had. The reviews say great coffee and I agree but I think its because its so fresh. It really is so fresh that the true flavor of the beans come right through. Brigitte Grisanti New York Foodie will be back everytime she's in Chelsea.

I've been coming to the two Lower East Side locations of Ninth Street Espresso for three years. I always look forward to their lattes when I come to Manhattan. Their brew is like breakfast!

My wife and I had not had a decent coffee for 5 days. We went to the Chelsea markets to see if they had a good coffee place, as we rounded a corner of the markets the smell of fresh coffee hit us. We bought two espressos and they were fantastic - perhaps we were a bit coffee deprived, but... More

If you are heading to the Highline, or Chelsea Market and craving coffee, then Ninth St Espresso is a must. The coffee is amazing and as a special treat, if you get a frothy version, they add an artistic twist. I had the mocha and its in my top 5. Only problem is finding seating if you want to relax...

I rarely want coffee but on a cold day i stopped in to get a tea and saw a group of people enjoying the day, getting work done and ordering the standard drinks. Not for the starbucks crowd.
