Ninth Street Espresso, Chelsea Market

75 9th Ave., Chelsea Market,
New York,
NY,
United States,
10011.

Though little more than curved counter and an assembly line of La Marzocco machines, this Chelsea Market cafe quickly serves some of New York's best-reviewed espressos, cappuccinos, and coffee drinks. Ninth Street Espresso scores big on both presentation and flavor: The foam-swirled lattes in particular are known for their beauty, creamy texture and smooth flavor. This popular stop-in can get hectic, but the wait gives coffee lovers time to consider purchasing Ninth Street's house blends of Intelligentsia beans. The exclusive Alphabet City Blend, which makes a rich syrupy espresso, is known for hints of dark chocolate and citrus.
