Kaffe 1668, Tribeca. This is one of two cafe’s by the same name that happen to be on Greenwich Street. The other is at number 401 a few blocks away. Kaffe 1668 gets its name from the year New Yorkers apparently decided they preferred coffee with their breakfast, over beer. The space here is very easy on the eye. Long, dark and narrow space that’s minimal, industrial and oh-so-Lower Manhattan. A great variety of beans for the espresso.
I love the idea that the owners deliver their growlers of iced coffee by bike. They’re all about sustainability at Birch, and for those Australians that can only drink flat whites, these guys can look after you.
These guys cover all bases when it comes down to coffee. Espresso, pour over, drip etc. A well made macchiato and some fine doughnuts to have as well. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the neighbourhood.
