Irving Farm Opens on the UWS
The downtown café brings its artisan coffee and famous cheddar-chive biscuits uptown.
August 15, 2012
Upper West Side coffee drinkers will be delighted to notice that Gramercy’s Irving Farm Coffee & Tea Bar has sprung up on 79th Street, between Amsterdam and Broadway. Designed by LevenBetts, the 74-seat space is replete with wood from the café's eponymous upstate farm—where they roast their coffee. The menu is full of thoughtfully sourced, craft-roasted single origin and blended coffee and espresso, as well as a rotation of craft beers and wine. Wines like the Loosen Bros. Dr. L Riesling are available by the glass and bottle. Plus, there’s a full menu of delicious sandwiches, salads, pastries, and cheese and charcuterie, available à la carte or by the board. If ordering charcuterie, make sure to pair it with a few of the spot’s infamous cheddar-chive biscuits. 224 W. 79th St., 212-874-7979
