The Gregorian Age
This creates the occasional challenge when traveling with my wife because she is a coffee fiend. She loves visiting different coffee shops and comparing the different blends of beans and the way it’s poured and she actually has experience working in a coffee shop. While she’s checking out the various brews at the counter, I stand there like a clueless idiot and play on my phone or pretend to know what’s happening. But sometimes, I’m smart enough to remember that I can order something other than coffee.
When we visited Gregory’s Coffee in New York City, I passed on having coffee but I did order some hot chocolate. I’m usually not impressed with hot chocolate because I guess I’m looking for the wrong thing - a cup of hot chocolate should taste like a delicious candy bar. Is this too much to ask?!
Well, it’s not too much at Gregory’s. My cup of hot chocolate was excellent. The chocolate was rich and creamy and didn’t taste watered down at all. And I don’t know for sure, but I think they topped it with fresh whipped cream.
Gregory’s Coffee ended up being the perfect spot to stop in and warm up on a cold day in Manhattan. We tried to brave the cold and tour the city but couldn’t resist the quaint atmosphere in this little coffee shop and spent some time enjoying delicious drinks and talking about our day. We went from being tourists to feeling like local hipsters.
And for this non-coffee drinker, I was able to fit right in with my tasty hot chocolate.
As a side note, Gregory’s Coffee has one of the coolest websites I’ve ever seen for a coffee shop. Check out their site and pay them a visit if you’re ever in Manhattan.
