A visit to Stumptown Coffee Roasters coffee shop was a great find all thanks to FourSquare. Using the Browse Nearby feature and selecting coffee, I found a few places to go to but somehow Stumptown Coffee stood out.
When I found out the coffee shop is in Ace Hotel New York, I made my decision.
The Ace Hotel was started in Portland, Oregan and now has hotels in major US cities, London and Panama.
The lobby is dark and lively. It was a Sunday afternoon and most of the seats were taken. Many were on their laptops.
Since Ace Hotel started in Portland, it seems fitting that there’d be a Stumptown coffee shop, which is also from Portland. You can enter the shop through the lobby or a separate entrance from the street.
Order a coffee (or an iced chai tea!) and stand by the window (there aren’t any seats), watching pedestrians and yellow taxis go by.
Along with Stumptown Coffee in Ace Hotel New York is the Breslin, a Michelin starred restaurant.
Even if you’re not planning on staying at Ace Hotel New York, stop by for coffee at Stumptown Coffee Roasters.
