On National Coffee Day, Check Out These New York Cafes

September 28, 2021

Every morning, you turn on the Keurig and make yourself a steaming cup ‘o joe. However, on National Coffee Day on September 29, treat yourself with a cup of something much more decadent from our local coffee shops.

Our Roosevelt Island area coffee shops specialize in thoughtfully-sourced coffee beans, flavorful blends and expertly-made coffee that will blow that Keurig out of the water. Get in line at these shops located near your Octagon apartment!

Gregory’s Coffee, located at 1273 1st Ave, New York which is 13 minutes from your Octagon apartment, was founded in 2006 in Manhattan with a strong focus on quality, innovative products and great service. Though they’re a specialty coffee brand first, they’re so much more than coffee, incorporating lifestyle and wellness into their holistic approach to food and experience. 

Gregory’s Coffee works tirelessly to select their coffees and develop roast profiles that bring the absolute best out of each bean. They roast four days a week in their facility in Long Island City, always ensuring the freshness and quality of their brews. In addition to their usual blends, they always carry limited edition single origin coffees that they source for their unique, exotic, and special flavor profiles.

Sweetleaf Coffee & Cocktail Bar, located at 4615 Center Blvd, Long Island City which is 11 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a coffeehouse lined with antiques and reclaimed wood, offering cocktails in the evening and weekend brunch.

Sweetleaf’s coffee is the perfect blend of art and science. It was founded in 2008 by Rich Nieto, a Queens native who wanted to roast coffee that reflects New York City: diverse, sophisticated and decidedly unique. He continues to experiment and refine to create a distinct experience that sets Sweetleaf apart.
