Welcome to City Brewed. We’re all about celebrating the life that happens over coffee: morning rituals, fresh-brewed inspiration, and taking a peek inside cafes near and far.

Joe the Art of Coffee; Upper East Side

When Kristen and I realized we were stuck in a neighborhood where Starbucks was the most "independent" of all coffee shops, we set out on a mission: find a cute coffee house made for Sunday afternoon lattes and Pinterest talks.

Not so hard, right? Wrong. There was some serious research involved here. Many Google searches and ten blocks later, we found ourselves at Joes, an amazing coffee shop chain with a perfect location on the UES. Oh and The Coffee Book? It will be the newest addition to my coffee table.
