Birch Coffee doesn’t just serve coffee, but they have an assortment of pastries. My whole New York experience was pretty magical. So my recounting of my trip is 100% positive, even when we were drenched and walking around Flatiron to buy umbrellas, rain jackets, and rain boots.The morning before my sister, my mom and I headed to Sweaty Betty, I dropped by Birch. It was a 5 minute walk from The Redbury. I hadn’t had breakfast yet, it was around 9am. I love coffee, if you haven’t realized that by now. But the coffee scene in New York is so distinct and different from Dallas, I fell in love.
Birch had a separate reading area. Book shelves filled with books, people enjoying a cup of coffee before heading out for their day. I ordered a mocha and a glazed donut. The brutal truth is that the donut was not the best. The donut was pretty dense and the glaze to dough ratio could’ve been better. The mocha was leaning more towards dark chocolate versus the typically sweet milk chocolate mocha. That was refreshing. The shop itself was crowded but I didn’t have to wait long to receive my order. Maybe five minutes? I have to give them points for that.
