Donna’s Coffee Shop Stops in New York City

(Keep in touch, this guide will be one that we continually update with new hot spot finds!)   


Cafe Grumpy– Chelsea, Manhattan- 224 West 20th Street

Café Grumpy Chelsea opened in 2006 on a unique tree-lined block. Our customers were the first in NYC to be offered a menu of coffees to choose from, all brewed by the cup.

This location is the perfect space to meet up with a friend, read the paper, or people and puppy watch on the benches outside. During the Spring and Summer, you can also enjoy your coffee outside in our back garden.


While investigating Harlem for several buyers, we enjoyed people watching in these coffee shops:

Lenox Coffee– Central Harlem, West 129th St

Lenox Coffee is a specialty coffee house located in central Harlem, at 60 West 129th Street between 5th Avenue and Lenox Avenue. We serve breakfast items including pastries, baked goods, bagels, sweet breads, and cookies—and we are always expanding our menu including our brand new sandwich options.

The Chipped Cup– West Harlem, Hamilton Heights

Taking inspiration from the Victorian Tea and Coffee Houses of old, the Chipped Cup aims to be a place where the diverse population of Hamilton Heights can come mingle over one of our delicious Espresso Bar drinks or sit quietly plugged in using our free wi-fi to get work done. If sunshine is what you crave: step out into our back garden patio, a tribute to the Victorians love of plants and flowers. We pride ourselves on serving fresh pastries delivered daily from famed chef Laurent Dupal’s bakery as well as crusty bagels and bialy’s from the lower east side’s renown Kossar Bialy’s. Whether you stop by for a delicious Counter Culture-brewed cup of coffee (Fair-Trade/Organic/Delicious) and a buttery croissant to make the start of your work day more bearable or hang out and get to know your Hamilton Heights neighbors – we warmly welcome you into our parlor!
