Neighborhood Spotlight: Think Coffee on Mercer Street

Think Coffee Mercer Street

Think Coffee on Mercer Street is one of my favorite coffee shops in the city. In addition to being fair trade, their blends are organic & shade grown (bird friendly; conserves biodiversity) offering the perfect triumvirate in conscious coffee ideals!

There are four Think Coffee locations in NYC, all downtown. The Mercer Street location (off West 3rd) is the closest to Washington Square. It’s large with comfortable couches and tables as well as a bar. There’s artwork on the shop walls and it also functions as a mini-gallery and event space, with art receptions, scrabble, and coffee tastings, periodically. From time to time, at night, you can catch music and writers reading their work there. It’s “always happy hour” at Think Coffee with $4 draft beers and $6 wine. (Note: The Mercer Street location is very much an NYU hangout but hey! there’s free wifi and an easy going vibe.)

I previously wrote about Think’s Bleecker and Bowery location here.

  1. Think Coffee is one of my favorite places in the city! I just moved to New York in January and my dad found Think Coffee when we were wandering around NYU just after the move. It’s a great atmosphere and has the best chai lattes I’ve had so far in the city! Whenever I’m there I always send my dad, who lives upstate, a picture and he makes a point to stop in now whenever he comes to visit me.

  2. Hi Molly,

    That is great! Think Coffee is definitely a find. I used to go there all the time but sometimes it was a *little* crowded so I have not been in awhile. Next time, I will definitely try the chai latte! That is very sweet that you send your dad pictures when you go there.

    Thanks for sharing!
