This hip urban spot does double-duty serving killer coffee as well as quality cocktails. Coffee bar by day and cocktail bar by night, it excels in both. Maelstrom takes its coffee very seriously. They serve super on-trend nitro cold brew and their affogato is out of this world. The venue itself has a simple but appealing white tile and bare brick coffee shop look with a gleaming coffee machine on the counter. As well as delivering some of the best coffee in the city, they also make superior cocktails using the same level of craft and care – be sure to check out their New York Sour, it’s all kinds of good. Perhaps unsurprisingly these guys also make some cracking coffee-based cocktails. Le Café Velvet blends their nitro cold brew with cider. They also serve an excellent breakfast (whether you opt to pair it with a cocktail or a coffee if your prerogative).
