I’m a huge fan of Toby’s Estate Coffee in Flatiron, so I was excited when I heard that they had opened up a West Village location. I finally got a chance to check it out a few weeks ago, and it certainly did not disappoint. The West Village outpost has a bit of different vibe from the Flatiron location – a little more downtown, a little more West Coast, but still with the same delicious drinks and friendly baristas that make visits to their Flatiron spot such a pleasure. It’s also nice and roomy with plenty of seating and beautiful light. Overall, a perfect place to duck into when you need to escape from the cold with a steaming cup of coffee or tea…and of course, a delicious pastry! Read on to see my pictures of this West Village gem:
Toby’s in the West Village actually has a Brew School, where you can learn about espresso, how to make latte art, different brew methods, and more, which I think sounds amazing.
This homemade blueberry “Pop-Tart” was incredibly delicious, like a little hand pie. I don’t even like Pop-Tarts (gross), but this was so, so good.
Hi Jackie What is your brew method at home ? I am always on the hunt of perfection.Currently I am doing the cold water method , however , I miss the smell of coffee in the morning. I have done Chemex and French Press methods also.
Toby's looks fabulous. Lucky you !
Hi Karen! I drink Grady's cold brew every morning. I've tried making my own with an at-home cold brewer but it did not turn out well, so I'm a Grady's devotee! I think cold brew tastes so much better that I just couldn't go back. I also have a high-quality drip coffeemaker for those times when I want hot coffee. I haven't tried chemex or french press but would love to learn more about them!
Awesome photos!! And I totally want to go to Brew School!!
Me too, we should do it!
