The buzz: A coffee shop that actually cares about its coffee! Newly re-opened, this quaint little café is a cut above the big names chains and really gets back to basics.
The décor: Tucked away at the end of a long corridor (hence the name), this cozy hideaway has a distinctly down-to-earth vibe. With clever lighting and a great use of mirrors, the café creates an illusion of space balanced with a homey interior of chalk-board menus and a cute kitchenette.
The drinks: From ristretto to cappuccino, Café Corridor offers rich, luxurious blends of Arabica coffee roasted and ground daily by café owner and ex-latte-art-champion Felix Wong. Each coffee is a work of art, the skill lying in getting the crème and the milk perfectly balanced.
The food: The complexity of the coffee flavors is complemented perfectly by a few beautifully simple dishes. Try a wholesome pumpkin soup and a fresh Greek salad, or opt for a more filling feed of spaghetti with mushrooms, flavored with sliced chili, garlic, diced and whole Thai basil, drizzled with olive oil.
Why you’ll come back: Coffee-lovers will appreciate an authentic addition to our local coffee culture. With its convenient location opposite Times Square, there’s all the more reason not to sell-out to Starbucks.
