The design pulled us in, and the coffee had us coming back. We were pleasantly surprised by La Colombe (no relationship to Colombia, FYI). The Soho, New York location is excellent in its centrality, you are sure to be near it on any journey downtown, and it fills a major geographical coffee gap between the East & West Villages’ cafes. There are 2 other locations in New York City, 2 in Philadelphia and a representative in Chicago and Seoul, South Korea.

The Soho location, the only we have been to, is a bustling low-key affair with the chimes of clinking cups on saucers and the hum of conversation, pleasantly without any of the attitudes that can invade other cafes serving premium coffees. All coffees are served in beautiful ceramic cups and that certainly helps the flavor. The Cappuccinos and Macchiatos are made with care and come out very smooth and creamy, with a nice balance of coffee to fat.  They have a few pastries and savories to enjoy along with the liquid happiness. They also sell a “Cold Pressed” bottled coffee that looks quite serious and could be a go-to item come summer.

While the store is blissfully free of propaganda, it is good to know that La Colombe a is Fair Trade, organic certified, child saving do-gooder organization. The matching badges can make you feel as justified as you need to are on display on their website. I believe that this type of activism is quite effective, and I appreciate it more than someone using their actions to sell products. Thumbs up to La Colombe for creating an effective, quality, and well-rounded brand.

  4. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your
    theme? Exceptional work!
