Ralph’s Coffee is tucked away in a bright corner atop the Polo Ralph Lauren store on Fifth Avenue in midtown New York.

It’s a charming spot… one of those quaint coffee shops that tempts you into staying for a long while.

The space is adorably inspiring, clean and airy with vintage accents; marble-top tables, giant windows overlooking busy Manhattan streets, and white-washed walls and fixtures.

The wonderful smell of coffee brewing pulls you in, adding to the cosy welcoming ambiance.
The beans brewed at the café are an organically grown, custom blend from coffee roasters La Colombe and designed by Ralph Lauren.

I ordered a latte with hemp milk, which was impressive, I quite enjoyed it – the milk had a clean fresh taste which made the coffee to shine; it was delicious!

We came for breakfast and tried to stay for as long as we could. We found ourselves perfect seats by the large windows, nibbled on old-fashioned peanut butter sandwiches with our coffee while people watching and lingering.

The atmosphere here was convivial, the staff were helpful and pleasant, and ready with suggestions and recommendations.

I imagine you’d come here from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, soak in the serene old-fashioned cafe vibes and enjoy a picturesque break with some good coffee.

    This place is such a gem, and I would love to go there after all the shopping, of course. Well, I can’t afford to shop on fifth (hahaha), but at least having coffee at that place would be so wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing, Elsa 🙂

      It’s a little nice gem away from the 5th Ave crowds, even when we’re not shopping… I can’t afford 5th Ave either 🙂
