Guide to caffeinating in Midtown Manhattan
The coffee culture in New York has come a long way with an array of worldly options. These are some of my favorites, although there’s plenty more great options throughout NYC.

Everybody at Zibetto takes great pride in what they do and serve. Their unique coffee blend is purely made from carefully chosen beans, roasted to perfection in Italy. Their menu offers delicious Italian pastries, paninis as well as refreshing drinks. Everything imported from the best producers in the world. That sounds expensive. No, not really. A visit to Zibetto is not a once a week experience. They see their espresso as a luxury you can afford every day. And for that reason they keep moderate prices.

Pays homage to the spirit of the bustling street in Melbourne, Australia, after which it is named. Every aspect of the café has been designed with the customer experience in mind. From the chic, industrial interior to the delicious, no-nonsense menu to the music that fills the space, Little Collins hits all the senses and makes people feel transported and completely at home, all at once. This is a place where the barista knows your name and remembers your favorite sandwich. They are thrilled to be partnering with Counter Culture Coffee and honored to be the first café in New York to unveil the ModBar.

This California-born company opened their second New York shop on the concourse level of Rockefeller Center. As the largest private construction project of the twentieth century, Rockefeller Center is comprised of eight million square feet of office space. They occupy a cringingly modest .0000875 percent of the total complex. Nestled around the corner from the famed ice skating rink and down the steps from 1 Rockefeller Plaza, their coffee bar is a sleek and efficient respite from the clamor of Midtown. They serve espresso, blends, and single origin coffees along with two styles of iced coffee. They keep the community of tourists and high-rise inhabitants happy with parfaits and pastries baked at their Brooklyn kitchen. The Rockefeller Center café can be a little tricky to find.
