New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Though chain coffee and tea emporiums today dominate much of the City's caffeine culture, Two for the Pot, a cozy boutique on the Brooklyn Heights-Cobble Hill border, continues to provide a refreshing dose of mom-and-pop service, convenience and selection after nearly four decades in business. The diminutive shop packs a diverse inventory of dozens of coffees and loose-leaf teas (many of which, including a Moroccan mint and two different Earl Greys, are roasted in-house), as well as candies, exotic spices, and an impressive panoply of brewing accessories. Much of the customer base is drawn from a neighborhood cast of long-time devotees, but the warmly attentive owner will treat you like a regular even on your first visit, helping you make your selection.
