Polo Truck at Rockefeller Plaza
“Great place to get coffee after ice skating at The Rink. The truck serves great lattes and cappuccinos. Also, the perfect place to take your selfie.”
“This place is the perfect combination of shopping and healthy eating. Chef Jenn at Barney’s is awesome and will always come up with interesting dishes.They have a great coffee cocktail made with La Colombe cold brew that will get you going for more shopping.”
“An amazing spot on Mercer Street. This is a little out of the way but definitely a great nook to explore. This place will make you feel you are somewhere in Paris. It has great coffee and pastries. I love to hang out there toward the end of the day when it is less crowded.”
“Don’t worry, no one can’t pronounce the name! If you like meringue and cream puffs this is a place for you. The original place is on 37 8th ave. For the holiday, they will have a pop-up café at the Ice Rink at Bryant Park. Great coffee and Brioche to refuel.”
“My favorite place to hang out, rain or shine. I could spend the whole day here. This place has a great café, a super cozy lounge (indoor and outdoor), a great eatery, and of course a great cocktail bar. This is a super chill place to visit or to book a stay.”
