Irving Farm Coffee

March 12, 2011

When I first moved to New York, it was pretty easy to get overwhelmed by it all. I don’t just mean its whole ever bustling metropolis vibe, but the small comforts that make me feel at home were hard to find. As you may have read in my Kiva Han post, having a welcoming place to go where I can sit and read, foamy latte in hand, is, for me, an important one of these comforts.

It can be hard to avoid the ubiquitous green mermaid, but New York has no shortage of alternatives. Irving Farm was one of the first cafes I came across in Manhattan. There’s no question that its 14th street location, less than a block from Pratt, is a major plus.

All of their tea and coffee options are wonderful, their pastry case is almost always stocked with a good selection of vegan (and non-vegan) baked goods and their staff is incredibly friendly.

While the space is not really designed for people to hang around or get work done, I would highly recommend stopping in on a sunny day and taking your drink and snack on a walk to nearby Jackson Square and enjoying some time among the greenery!

Until we eat again,
