Felix Roasting Co. on Park Avenue South is unlike any coffee shop you’ve ever visited. The design-forward “experiential” coffee shop conceptualized by hotelier, Matt Moinian, and coffee entrepreneur, Al Ansari, offers New Yorkers the best in innovative espresso drinks, superb quality, and engaging culture. Their menu includes interactive items so instead of just grabbing a coffee you’re having a full-on coffee experience. Starting this summer, Felix is adding grab-and-go dishes from SoHo cafe west~bourne so guests can pair chia pudding or togarashi chex mix with their tonics and coffees. Felix is also now selling their house-roasted whole beans to take home.
The most exciting new development is The Felix Cellar, a beautiful showcase and event space recently unveiled to host workshops, tastings, classes, and more. Complimenting the first floor’s architectural grandeur, the cellar features cavernous design elements as a nod to the great wine cellars of Italy or Napa like vaulted ceilings, antique mirrors, and handmade copper gilded bricks. Be on the lookout for latte art competitions, tastings, cuppings, intensive classes, and workshops or rent out the space for a gathering of up to 50 people.
One of our favorite, indulgent experiences at Felix Roasting Co. happens when you order the Honeycomb Latte with Lavender and Rosemary. The honeycomb is a house made brittle toffee shell that you actually have to smash through to reach the latte underneath, which is made with cacao-nib infused milk, fresh lavender blossoms, and rosemary. Felix offers house-made nut milk and fresh oat milk as a substitution in any of their beverages, stop by to try them all!
