They take their coffee seriously!

Went there recommended by a resident in the neighborhood and I was not disappointed! They have pastries to go with your drink, but really the focus is the coffee... Highly recommended!

Was told about this place by my daughter who is a Barrista and was not disappointed. Far away from Melbourne I find a great coffee to kick start the day. The staff have a good understanding of what I was requesting and made the coffee so well that I went back at least 3 times while on my holiday. This... More

For a coffee fanatic like me this place is Heaven! One of the best coffee shops in New York. Amazing coffee, to drink just as an espresso or with frothy steamy milk. Even when mixed with milk you can still taste its potent delicious aroma! Polite and friendly staff.

I love to drink coffee and this place did not disappoint. After I tried it for the first time, I came back the same day to get another one. If you like coffee, you must try this place!

Not for the faint hearted, this is real coffee as it should be - and on the stronger side of that! Great vibe, and a perfect pick me up on a crisp morning!

Although numerous coffee shops can be found in NYC, few stand out from among the more commercial stops on most corners of the city. Ninth Street Espresso is one such place. The Alphabet City location featured one of the best cappuccinos I've ever had. All coffees are "specialty roasted" in NY. Quality really shines through in coffee flavor and service.... More

After struggling to find a Melbourne-like coffee in the USA (not through lack of trying). We researched and found that 9th street had great reviews, we couldn't get there fast enough. Excellent coffee, creamy milk, perfect temperature and complete with coffee art. What a great find!! Needless to say we visited often during our stay.

Visited on August 21st...I'm a huge espresso fan and gotta say that their espresso is one of the best I've ever had!! So much so that I went back for seconds on the same day!! Had the espresso with milk (medium size) which was perfect as I enjoy the strong taste of espresso so the large might not have hit... More

I drink lots of coffee and espresso. While walking in the Chelsea Market we spotted Ninth Street Espresso and decided to give it a try. I'm a bit of a coffee snob and this met and exceeded my expectations. Bravo - HIGHLY recommended.

I normally drink a flat white. These guys make a superb espresso with milk, and it costs $4 whatever size you buy. Good service, relaxed pace, wi-fi - perfect for the daily fix.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
