Eater recently published a list of “28 Exceptional Coffee Shops in NYC,” and one spot on the Upper East Side made the list.
Variety Coffee Roasters — which has a location at 1269 Lexington Avenue at the corner of 85th Street — was noted for its “nutty, chocolatey roasts” (the same coffee is served at all of its locations, but Eater listed the UES shop).
The Upper East Side location is Variety’s newest; the company was launched in Brooklyn in 2008 and now has six storefronts in total.
Since opening its UES outpost in 2018, the coffee maker has earned a score of 4.5 out of 5 stars on both Google and Yelp.
Most reviews have been positive since Variety opened. The handful of one-star givers were mostly focused on the staff members being rude.
