Coffee guide: NYC
Coffee is my savior during fashion week. While I’ve lived in New York during fashion week’s prior, this was my first real fashion week experience. It was amazing, and exhausting all at the same time. The blisters kept on coming, but so did the inspiration. Every time I go back to New York I want to move back. The energy is contagious. I know that sounds so cliché, but it’s true. You end up leaving with so much drive and ambition. If you are feeling un-inspired, go to New York! Got get lost in this magical city. I promise you will feeling different than when you came. Or maybe you won’t leave at all. I first came to New York with the intention of staying three months, and it ended up being 3+ years. You never know.
Here are my top 4 coffee spots that helped me keep fueled during NYFW.

- La Colombe, Address: 75 Vandam St, New York, NY 10013
My husband first took me here during my first week in NYC,and I fell in love with him and their latte’s. If you really want a kick though get the cold brew, which they call “Pure Black.” Word on the street is they are opening a location in Silver Lake.
2. Irving Farm, Address: 88 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002
Their LES location is definitely a hipster haven, and I’m ok with it. I also have an obsession with their avocado toast.
3. Happy Bones, Address: 394 Broome St, New York, NY 10013
If I could come here everyday I would. Clean and minimal, strong coffee, and amazing pastries. Go for the donuts though.
4. Cha Cha Matcha, Address: 373 Broome St, New York, NY 10013
Down the street from Happy Bones, you’ll find this newcomer. I want to say this is the Alfred Coffee of LA. It’s ALL OVER INSTAGRAM, and for good reason. The decor is everything, and the Matcha is so tasty. While this may not be a coffee shop, it’s still a must if you’re in NYC.
