Sometimes your local Starbucks just doesn’t cut it, so here are 5 coffee shops in West Village you must try whether you’re a resident or visiting.

Rebel Coffee is a specialty coffee shop serving baked goods from local artisan bakers with fresh ingredients. This cozy shop is the perfect place to stop by for a cortado or mocha. You’ll fall in love with the atmosphere just as much as the coffee in your hand. Grab your go-to coffee of choice, take a seat by the windows and enjoy everything Rebel Coffee offers.
2. Birch Coffee – Location: 56 7th Ave.
Birch Coffee began as two individuals’ desire to love what they did for a living, making coffee. This shop gives back to the community while also brewing a flavorful cup of joe. With multiple locations in NYC, we love their shop in West Village the most because of the comfortable atmosphere. While you’re at Birch Coffee, try an americano with one of their delicious pastries from behind the counter. After all, what’s coffee without a freshly
baked pastry soulmate?
3. The Elk – Location: 128 Charles St.
If a full-service cafe with lite healthy bites and home decor for sale sounds up your alley, then The Elk NYC is the coffee shop for you. Inspired by the owner’s Pacific Northwest roots, The Elk’s decor is infused with the spirit of the outdoors.

Merriweather Coffee + Kitchen is serving Aussie-style coffee and food in West Village. Coffee is their passion, and their delicious and healthy inspired dishes pair perfectly with a cup of coffee.

looking to do, you will find it in New York.
