Back in March, Winfield Street Coffee started serving commuters from it’s first Upper East Side shop, located on the platform inside the 86th Street-Second Avenue subway station. Immediately a hit, Winfield has expanded with a second underground coffee shop, this time located in the 96th Street-Second Avenue station.
Connecticut-based Winfield Street Coffee opened its new location on the lower level of the station Monday morning, once again turning an old school stainless steel-clad newsstand into something Upper East Side residents can brag about having in the neighborhood.
While customers lined up for hot cups of joe when Winfield opened its first NYC coffee shop on that chilly morning last March, Monday was definitely more of an iced coffee kind of day. Juice, soda or bottled water are also available.
In addition, there’s also a selection of bagels, croissants and pastries for those who need a quick bite to eat on their way to work.
Founded in Norwalk in 2015, Winfield Street Coffee has grown quickly with a number of shops opening in the northern suburbs of New York City— Croton, Stamford, Westport— as well as in Naples, Florida.
A third coffee shop, located inside the 72nd Street-Second Avenue subway station, is in the works as well. It is expected to open in December.
Regular hours are 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Friday and 7:00 am until 5:00 pm on Saturdays. Winfield Street Coffee is closed on Sundays.
