Places of NYC: Stumptown Coffee

Stumptown Coffee Cappuccino:

A few weeks ago my dear friend Wyeth and I went to have a cup of coffee at Stumptown Coffee over on 18 West 29th street.  It's located so that you order your coffee and pastry in the front at the bar and you then have the option of sitting in the lobby of Ace Hotel.  If you get there at the right time it's an excellent place to sit down, have a cup of coffee, people watch, or read the newspaper.  The above shot of a typical cappuccino was recorded with my Blackberry and can be exactly the quality you can expect to see with your order.  The bar has a great old city feel to it reminiscent of a New York I personally wish could come back. Not going to happen though. Grab a friend or a group of friends and head on over. Make sure you take the opportunity to find seating in the Ace Hotel lobby.
