Last Monday, September 7, 2009, we learned that long-anticipated Stumptown Coffee Roasters was opening in the Ace Hotel so we headed over to check it out.
Not only is it perfect place to pickup your morning cup of perfectly brewed, reasonably priced, direct trade coffee on the go, but the lobby is a perfect place to sit and enjoy your coffee solo, with a friend, or a business associate.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters, named Food & Wine Magazine’s Best Boutique Roaster, is an internationally recognized roastery founded in Portland, OR, with several cafés on the West Coast serving some of the best fresh coffee and espresso in the world. Their café at Ace Hotel NYC is their first on the East Coast. Obsessed with quality and fair trade, they insist on roasting their hand-selected coffee onsite. Stumptown believes in the social, environmental, and economic benefits of sustainable business practices, supporting coffee farms that are committed to the wellbeing of their workers, land, and water.
Head across the hotel lobby to the lobby’s Breslin Bar if you’re in the mood for an after-work cocktail, glass of wine, or a refreshing soda.
They have an assortment of specialty drinks, but the most important is “The Flatiron!” The Flatiron contains rhum cement, ginger beer, lemon whiskey bitters and basil. Why so important? $1 for every Flatiron sold is donated to the Madison Square Park Conservatory!
We are very much looking forward to the opening of the Breslin Bar and Dining Room at the Ace Hotel, scheduled for October 20, 2009. For a great article on the plans visit New York Magazine’s GrubStreet article.
