In 2001 we opened New York City's first quality-driven specialty coffee shop. From the start our goal was to keep things simple, serving great coffee that anyone could enjoy. Evidenced in a streamlined menu free of unnecessary terminology, Ninth Street is focused on remaining genuine and consistent. In addition to five retail locations, Ninth Street Espresso operates its own roasting facility, open to the public at Manhattan’s Chelsea Market—another example of Ninth Street breaking the norm. Ninth Street is still as independent and as NYC as it gets.
