On a Thursday morning each week I meet up with a client at their headquarters close to the newly christened area of Upper West Side in the CBD. Its a weird little part of town, not the most exciting part of the city by any stretch of the imagination but there are a few places that do get me somewhat excited.
Once such place is Patricia Coffee Roasters. Tucked away just off Little Bourke Street. Patricia is standing room only unfortunately, however the great coffee makes up for that. Black, white or filter coffee is on offer with a selection of beans from various suppliers and the current love of doughnuts is met with the small selection of doughnuts from Doughboys Doughnuts (as well as other cookies and pastries).
I dont frequent Patricia's every week but there is a real sense that the people working there know their regular clientele well and are happy to engage in conversations about everything from coffee to the front page of the daily newspaper. Theres a great atmosphere each and every time I visit the place and the love of great coffee and of the various baked good on offer is infectious. Its everything you want in your daily coffee run and more.
