Gregory’s is a coffee chain with a lot of locations in neighborhoods like Midtown, Fidi, and Herald Square. They aren’t the coolest coffee shops in the world, but they’re useful to know about, and they aren’t bad spots to hang out (especially if you’re into pastries). So if you ever find yourself in Midtown and you have some time to kill or work to do, look for a Gregory’s. There will probably be one near you.
