A random hybrid of Karaoke venue and coffee spot, this little gem is more than meets the eye. On one hand, you have the nondescript, almost hidden entranceway. Upon walking in, you feel a bit underwhlemed by the rather modest space with its simple tables and chairs. It does not have the atmosphere or aesthetic of the best coffee shops.... More

Coffee Foundry can be a bit difficult to locate, but once you're inside the experience is mostly positive. Their coffee is pretty good, wifi actually works and rarely super busy so you can find a table. They apparently have pastries but I don't know where you can find them...

Great coffee. Very cool place. Lots of people working on their computers here. And some people talking. Pretty quiet. Concrete bar. Solid coffee mugs. Doubles as a karaoke place at night.

Stylish but unassuming place. Great for some work or catching up with a friend. Came for an iced-coffee, but saw the ahi tuna lunch bowls and had to get one. Delicious, fresh and clean ahi, served with seaweed and pineapple sticky rice. Yummy and filing. I can see myself coming here at random times to satisfy a craving I know... More

No fuss, no pretence, just great coffee! Aussie's searching for good coffee in NY look no further - it's here. Good atmosphere.

I am new to NYC and downloaded this new awesome Coffee App called CUPS. In my effort to explore as much of the city by foot as I can, the app directed me towards The Coffee Foundry. I needed to stop and get some work done as well. Not only is the place super casual, soothing, and well air-conditioned, the... More

We stumbled upon this cafe on our last day in New York and we only wished we'd found it earlier. We are self confessed Aussie coffee snobs and walked many miles during our week in NYC in search of good coffee and this place delivers. Nice atmosphere but really it was all about the Ethiopian beans.....

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
