I went for the Emma Chamberlain pop up event, and the limited edition coffee selections were soooo good. I tried the strawberry and matcha drink and my friend got the picky about my chocolate drink, and both were superb. The main menu Blank Street has is just mid, I think you can find better tasting coffee at other cafes. But since Blank Street has a lot of collabs, I’d recommend checking them out then!
Staff were slow, would’ve been ok if the coffees ordered were prepared well. Sadly tasted watery.
I frequent the location on Lafayette in Soho. The coffee and pastries are great, and staff is incredibly nice!
Good for what it is -- basic coffee -- but beware of businesses like Blank Street that are funded by private equity. Instead of creating a local business that is owned by people that live locally, Blank Street is just another big-money backed coffee shop that extracts profits from neighborhoods and sends it off to investors that don't live in the community. NYC has enough PE backed businesses, and I won't support another market vulture that is attempting to aggregate the coffee business, extract wealth and profits from our communities, and not pay a wage that allows workers to live in the area they work. So, one star for bad business ethics.
