Cafes in Europe have been important for hundreds of years as gathering places that stimulate social and cultural life. As in European cafes, drinking coffee in Manhattan Espresso Café is not an end in itself so much as it is the stimulus for business and social activities. People meet to discuss business, politics or for a simple respite from one’s busy day. Coffee is not only for pleasing the palate, but also for stimulating a sense of community and social interaction.

Manhattan Espresso Café was inspired by the grand cafes of Europe albeit using a more contemporary model applicable to the modern American lifestyle. Whether it be the morning coffee to start the day, a quick demitasse of espresso after lunch or a cappuccino prepared in a porcelain cup, Manhattan Espresso Cafe is at the center of a culture and social ritual that New Yorkers have grown accustomed to.
