Blank Slate Coffee Review
I could chat about my NY trip all day long. It was such a memorable experience. Here I am, a month later, still reminiscing. Someone want to take me back to NYC? I’m in love. Of course it wouldn’t be a trip without me visiting as many coffee shops as possible. I went to quite a few during the 5 days I was there. I didn’t have my handy dandy camera, so I couldn’t get the most gorgeous shots, but I used what I had. Most of the time I was picking up a cup of Joe before heading out to go explore the city. Very much on the go. I wouldn’t have had time to properly style and frame my lattes anyway.
Blank Slate was a maximum of a 5 minute walk from The Redbury hotel. The baristas wore striped aqua and white t-shirts with jeans. It was a tight space, with the best menu. I’m so serious. I had breakfast there, the lunch menu sounded delicious but the dessert menu was the most impressive. S’mores dip and cake batter dip were the two stand-out items. Are you kidding me? Best menu ever. If you’re near Midtown/Flatiron, visit Blank Slate. Guys, they sell Cookie DŌ. Blank Slate is the first well rounded coffee shop I have ever been to, just saying.
What do I mean by that? Have you been to those coffee shops that try to do everything? They’re a restaurant, a coffee shop, an art installation, etc. But they lack in more than one area? Not Blank Slate. Man, the selection of food they have is so #worthit. The coffee was good, the breakfast was insanely good, and the menu selection was well balanced. You could find something healthy and indulgent. I’ll be going back whenever I’m back in the city. The only thing that sucked is that they weren’t opened late, but still, that doesn’t take any points off. It’s a strong 4.5/5 because will I ever find a perfect coffee shop? We’ll see.
