George Howell Coffee

HAPPY NEW YEAR, dear friends and readers!! 

I thought it would be fun to kick off 2017 with a post dedicated to one of my favorite openings of this past year, George Howell Coffee. 

George Howell features hand poured single estate and micro lot coffees that come together with high quality brewing equipment and skilled baristas; resulting in exceptional coffee and espresso drinks.  Because of them, (along with supporting roles by Gracenote and Caffè Nero) I became a very spoiled coffee drinker in 2016. 

The clean, light filled cafe located downtown at The Godfrey Hotel with a beautiful contemporary art aesthetic has become my go to for a mid afternoon cortado or cappuccino office escape. It offers a warm embrace when I'm in need of a 15 minute recharge - a quiet moment to collect my thoughts away from the computer screen.

A terrific pastry selection (Union Square Donuts!) and impeccably made toasts and sandwiches have given them a permanent spot on the breakfast and lunch rotation.

  1. This place looks AWESOME. I work from home every Friday, and am always looking for new spots to check out!

  2. The most gorgeous coffee! I definitely need to pay George Howell a visit :) Also, I love your shirt in that photo!


  3. I hadn't heard of this place, but it looks lovely!

  4. This negative isn't directly related to coffee, it's related to what people put in their cups to go along with it. Many people load their cups with cream and sugar, which is not very healthy. Coffee

  5. Good picture in this blog, all are looking awesome
