I initially went to Saturdays Surf NYC shop to grab a coffee since my hotel had recommended it. Once inside I was completely surprised with the concept of an espresso bar within a surf shop. Somehow, the coolest NY neighbourhood just got cooler in my eyes. Between Starbucks around the corner and a shop with pretty surfer boys behind the counters or hanging out in their cozy backyard, it became an easy decision on where to grab my java. I even did a bit of shopping and picked up a beautiful handmade bracelet for someone who loves the sport. The store is full of so many other goodies as you can see from the pictures below.
