I started working at the 601 building a few weeks ago at a fashion agency and the location is awful to say the least. Located as west as Manhattan will take you, just off the west side highway and almost 12 Avenue... yes believe it, there is a 12th Avenue! So obviously a major problem has been finding great food and great coffee in the area.
It seems like this has obviously come to people's attention and food trucks are popping up all over the street, including inside the building! They have brought of the Van Leeuwan trucks right inside the building up on the 12th Floor. I guess they brought it in through Martha Stewart's private car elevator, haha.. not sure. Either way great coffee is being brewed up on the 12th floor and I couldn't be happier! I'm usually there once to twice a day, enjoying their always perfect cappuccino ;) But this particular day, after hours of pulling fashion images, I needed a major pick me up. The perfect thing, an affogato was in order! It's so good and immediately brought me back to life!
