Lê Phin

$$$$(929) 422-3972
Hours:FRIDAY09:00AM to 05:30PM

"Cute" is the first word that will come to mind as soon as you step inside Lê Phin in the East Village. The small space with white brick walls is filled with light wood furniture and fresh flowers, and when it's sunny out, this place gets a ton of natural light. Owner Kim Lê, who grew up in Vietnam, worked as a professional coffee quality grader before opening this cafe, which unsurprisingly features phin-brewed coffee. Get a hot or cold latte with house-made pandan syrup along with a croissant, blueberry muffin, or scone. Once you get your order from the friendly staff, you'll probably see at least one person pecking away on their laptop as they attempt to write the next great (or just OK) American novel.
