The first time “Happy Bones” found me, it was while I was visiting a vintage clothing store on Bond Street on a Sunday afternoon. The scent of coffee coming from the back of the store attracted me to this unusual location for a coffee shop where I ended up spending a few hours at the communal table. I left the store with a good flavor of coffee in my mouth, without even knowing the name of the coffee shop
A few months later I went back to the same vintage clothing store. This time I walked directly to the room in the back, making my grand entrance into an hair stylist shop. This is New York, I thought: stores pop up and disappear quite rapidly.
Luckily for me, “Happy Bones” did not disappear. It just moved. And it found me again, this time on Broome Street. At first it seemed a new place but the quality of the Counter Culture coffee, the small glass for the espresso and the signature spoons made the connection with that Sunday afternoon on Bond Street.
This espresso is really good and since the location is now permanent, there are no excuses for not trying this coffee.
