Kiwi-owned coffee shop with a conscience
Tipple of choice: Leave your latte behind - it’s time to try a ‘flat white’. Originating from Australia and New Zealand, this caffeinated cuppa combines velvety milk over a single or double ristretto espresso.
If you’re a firm believer that good things come in small packages, then this tiny, three table café on the edge of Little Italy won’t disappoint. The cool white space gives a warm welcome thanks to a collection of local artworks and Brit sounds on the stereo, whilst baked treats from Brooklyn-based Ovenly provide sweet satisfaction.
Coffee is roasted and supplied by local company Counter Culture, whose focus on fair trade suppliers make each perfectly prepared cup an ethically sound choice too. But Happy Bones’ moral compass isn’t just fixed on the brew, with a percentage of the café’s profits going to Free Arts NYC, an organisation providing artistic education to the city’s underprivileged children.
