Gertrude NYC recently opened at 204 West 96th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam. Australian owner Shweta Khare named her new business after Gertrude Street in Melbourne, a charming strip of eateries and shops.

The space is small but there are a couple of stools and they’ve got some nice floral vibes going on.

The menu includes a variety of hot and cold specialty drinks like cortados, turmeric lattes, hot chocolate and all of the expected coffee varieties (cappucinos, Americanos, espressos, mochas and standard).

Their latte is delicious … and beautiful.
