New Coffee + Pastry Place Coming to 81st and Columbus

A new coffee + pastry spot is coming. About Coffee, whose slogan is “it has always been about coffee”, has Soho and Brooklyn locations, and they’re aiming to open on the Upper West Side on March 18th. They’ve leased space at 445 Columbus Avenue, between 81st and 82nd Streets.

One of their popular drinks is their cortado, which is espresso with steamed milk (pictured below). They also have seasonal specials, which are currently coffees with cardamom, lemon, ginger and oatmeg.

About Coffee Cortado

They’re quite into coffee art and artistic pours. Here’s a peak at their macchiato.

About Coffee Macchiato
