Fall Pastry Roundup

Posted on November 18, 2011


In its second month of operation, our 46th Street kitchen is really hitting its stride and cranking out new deliciousness every day. Today, I wanted to highlight some of the new treats we’ve been gorging ourselves on in the past week alone. Pictured above, clockwise from the top left:

  • a) The huge new chocolate chip cookie. With no offense meant to our beloved mini-cookies, it’s just super soft and delicious.

  • b) Chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons. Their texture is almost as wonderful as their flavor, and they’re Gluten-Free!

  • c) We’ve had requests for an oatmeal cookie for years now, and we’ve finally found a recipe we love. It has the great flavor and texture you would expect from a freshly-baked oatmeal cookie with tangy, sweet cranberries thrown in.

  • d) I wandered into our kitchen and saw a deep fryer the other day and, to be honest, I was kind of hoping for chicken wings. Luckily, these glazed doughnuts are even better.

The kitchen is putting out new items faster than I can write about them and we’re suitably excited.

Our Film Club Selection for November is the dark, funny, and darkly funny The Man Who Wasn’t There by the Coen Brothers. It has the kind of black and white cinematography that makes cigarette smoke look downright spiritual and most other things somewhat creepy. We will be projecting it on a bedsheet as usual.

I cannot overstate how excited I am about getting to eat a gigantic piece of this Focaccia bread for lunch now.

We had another in-house throwdown a week and change ago, and Jackie here overcame stiff competition from a few previous champs to reign supreme, notching a win for both Park Avenue and the Cape Cod side of our Cape Cod vs. Jersey Shore theme. Our homeboy Nick was on hand to take some pictures of the madness (madness, I tell you!), and you can check those out at his Flickr.

If you’ve walked into one of our shops today you’ve probably noticed what is the first major shakeup to our savory food offerings in a very long time. Sure, we’ve experimented with ingredients and flavor profiles, but the big sandwich/petite sandwich/salad trifecta hasn’t been messed with until now. As of today, we’ve consolidated all of our sandwich-making might into one size: the seven-inch-long baguette. We have a delicious, vegetarian apple and brie, we have a roast beef, cheddar, and tomato with horseradish mayo, and several old favorites have survived the transition as well.

We’ve transformed our salads from a chicken/grain based selection to an (oft-requested) tossed salad section. There will be many combinations of cheeses, meats, fruits, and vegetables for you to enjoy. Let us know what you think; we’re feeling optimistic.

The Newspaper of Record

Imagine our surprise and excitement upon hearing the other day that we were in the New York Times. Indeed, this article does feature a few mentions, and we’re quite happy to be included in the list of awesome shops expanding throughout New York City. It’s certainly an exciting time to be making coffee in the city.

Oh, Henrietta

Posted on September 27, 2011


44th Street’s Ashley selected The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot as our next book club book and, trust me, it’s one you’ll want to read. In short: an African-American woman in 1950s Baltimore is diagnosed with cervical cancer and, unbeknownst to her or her family, her cells are used to kickstart the last half-century’s worth of cancer research. Skloot exploration of this event and its consequences (in terms of ethics, race, and history) is legitimately thrilling. Devour it this month and join us for a discussion at the Park Ave shop on Friday, October 24th.

The Sun Never Sets

We’ve been preparing for months, and as of 6am tomorrow we will finally have expanded our little coffee empire, if only a few blocks northeast. A few baristas you might recognize from our other stores are ready and excited to start something new, and we’ve armed them with 2 beautiful new Synesso Machines, a wide open space, and the same great coffee you’re used to from our other shops. Stop by this week and have a shot or two.

Jocks vs. Nerds

Posted on September 7, 2011


A week ago we had a little in-house Thursday Night Throwdown at the Park Ave store, and man did we have some fun. Our baristas all put forth solid efforts, but it came down to the home team matchup of Park Ave favorites Jessica and Angela, with the former triumphing in a very close contest. Check out some photos of both the throwing down and the partying on our Facebook page! We can’t wait to do it again soon.

As those of you who have visited our shops or read our Twitter in the past few weeks know, we’re pretty excited about these new Iced Coffee Growlers. They’re selling at $5 for the Growler itself plus $21.50 for each 64oz fill of delicious cold brew (along with a few cups of ice, if you need ‘em), and they seem to be catching on quite quickly. There’s still time to take one to the beach!
