A few weeks ago a new coffee shop quietly opened on the Upper West Side, making it that much harder to decide where to score that morning (or night) cup o' joe. Irving Farm has a location down on Irving Place, but now they are brewing in a second outpost up on 79th Street. The joint is fairly large for a coffee spot, with 74 seats where you can sip their varied selection of single origin labels and blends.
The new locale stands apart from other neighborhood coffee slingers with their large menu selection - there are a variety of cheeses, meats, sandwiches and salads along with a well curated selection of wine and beer if coffee isn't quite enough to wet your whistle. The decor features re-purposed wood that comes from Upstate New York, which happens to be where Irving Farm's roasting plant is located. If you need a caffeine fix, the shop is open at 224 West 79th Street.
