One early spring day in 2012, we opened our second New York shop on the concourse level of Rockefeller Center. As the largest private construction project of the twentieth century, Rockefeller Center is comprised of eight million square feet of office space. We occupy a cringingly modest .0000875 percent of the total complex.
Nestled around the corner from the famed ice skating rink and down the steps from 1 Rockefeller Plaza, our coffee bar is a sleek and efficient respite from the clamor of Midtown.
We serve espresso, blends, and single origin coffees along with two styles of iced coffee. We keep our community of tourists and high-rise inhabitants happy with parfaits and pastries baked in our Brooklyn kitchen and with our golden, made-to-order liege wafels.
Our Rockefeller Center café can be a little tricky to find:
Directions from BDFM subways
Exiting from the subway, follow signs that read “24-hour booth and 49th street.” After heading through the turnstile, stay right through the revolving doors. At Paper Source, take the right tunnel. At the end of the hall, stay to the right, where you will see a large seating area with chairs and tables. We are located to the upper left corner of the seating area. (Look for the blue bottle!)
Directions from 49th Street
Enter Rockefeller Plaza from the revolving doors labeled “14 West 49th Street” located between Free People and Morell’s. Take a right down the stairs. You will see us as you descend!
Directions from 48th street:
Enter Rockefeller Plaza from the revolving doors labeled “15 West 48th Street” located between Citibank and Dean & DeLuca. Walk past the information desk (or feel free to stop and ask questions) and take the stairwell to the left leading to the concourse level.
