Sip a cappuccino in the courtyard of the High Line Hotel, take a deep breath of summer air, and you may be able to convince yourself that you’re smelling the Italian countryside rather than taxi exhaust. This is the only Intelligentsia coffee bar in NYC. They serve very good caffeinated beverages both in the lobby of the hotel and from a refurbished old truck parked in the courtyard. If you’re looking for coffee and nice outdoor seating in Manhattan, your options don’t get better than this.
