Success! Thanks for posting your review of Joe the Art of Coffee. You’ve done the world some good today.

The Best of the Indie's

I have had the pleasure of watching John's modest coffee shop dream grow into the bustling enterprise it now is. Some of the friendliest people I have ever encountered work here... many have become friends. This is a neighborhood coffee shop with a neighborhood feel... one of the few places that makes resident New Yorkers feel like ""residents"" and forget about the maddening tourism that surrounds us. When a coffee ... view more

Free Trade coffee is NOT HERE! Bad coffee IS HERE!

This is my first ever complaint of anything, I usually like to rave if I like something. ATTENTION! No star here... everyone else has ranted about the bad service so I'll concur and move on. Where do I start? Went in to buy a pound of coffee, they sell it by the 12 ounce bag, you need to get a special order for a pound. I asked if I got a coffee with it. First they said yes. When I paid 12 dollars (YES 12 bucks for 1... view more

Joe the art of @#$%!! service

Who knows if their coffee is any good? I stood and waited to be acknowledged while the hipster barristas refused to make eye contact with me. Oh, sorry, your friends (who already have their coffee in hand) take precedence. Fabulous.\r \r After 5 min of this inane activity I went around the corner to Starbucks. Where, yes, the corporate employees acted completely normal--and simply exchanged a brief pleasantry while t... view more

Almost great - worth it if you're in the neighborhood

Joe and Ninth Street were the leaders of the NY coffeehouse renaissance and set the bar high for other more recent comers (Grumpy, Collage, et. al.). While those newcomers might have an edge on technology and raw materials, Joe is still up there for quality. People wait in line at Starbucks yet complain about a line in an indie shop as if that's never supposed to happen (ever been to Ritual in SF?). \r \r There is a ... view more

Actually, it IS good!

Warm ""coffee-flavoured"" milk wasn't the best start to our relationship, but Joe and I have really h it it off and now we're going strong. I've had several coffees from several different barristas there, and all of them have been great - strong, hot (but not boiling) and served quickly - just the way coffee should be. A little on the pricey side though.

Great coffee, staff attitude ... watch out

Moving to NYC from a country in love with its espresso coffee was going to be a mission. Joe's however promised to be the solution to the many terrible experiences of drip-coffee around New York.\r \r The coffee is first rate, good crema, milk not burnt, lovely mellow flavors, even a little 'coffee-art'. All in all very good coffee. Nice selection of cakes and cabinet snacks to finish things off.\r \r Unfortunately t... view more

Good coffee, horrific service

This place has very good coffee, bagels and cakes. Unfortunately the service is terrible especially on weekends. Longs lines are one thing and could be bearable if the staff were more hospitable, got the order right occasionally and didn't spend most of their time chatting with their buddies in front or behind of the counter. The staff aren't very professional e.g. they tend to serve their friends and let them cut in... view more

Amazing coffee, perfect cafe

You know it's hard to find a non-Starbucks cafe these days. Luckily, there's Joe's. I found it on Citysearch and couldn't be happier. Not only is the coffee amazing (perhaps second only to MUD, and that's hard to beat) but Joe's has that perfect mix of cafe ambiance: writers, readers, gossiping friends. Perhaps you can even enjoy it if you can get a seat (the only time I've been able to get a table w/o waiting is aro... view more

Amazing cappucino

The coffee is very good, and the pastries are much better than Starbucks (not hard to do), but the real star of this place is the cappucino. They get the milk just right, and it's delicious. Staff is usually friendly, and it has a nice ambience.

Best coffee in the West Village

Joe is the only place in the West Village where you can find a decently prepared espresso/cappuccino.
