La Colombe, which means "dove" in french, is Soho's new hidden gem. Until now Gimme was the only option to get a good coffee. And although I love Gimme, there's no place to sit down and hang with friends. This was a much needed addition to the area, located perfectly between Soho and Nolita, this will no doubt be my regular stop. The staff was super friendly, I chatted with the manager for a while and I could see we were definitely on the same page with coffee and culture. I loved the whole experience and the coffee tasted great! The cups are cute and give off this whole french cozy feeling. I thought it was a nice touch to contrast the quite modern interior. Luckily, it has no sign outside so its easy to miss, making it a bit transparent to tourists... but for you local coffee connoisseurs, go find it and enjoy! See you there.
