Brooklyn’s Toby’s Estate Coffee has opened up a new location in the Flatiron at 160 5th Avenue (between 20th and 21st Street). The roasters specialize in espresso sourced (often directly) from farmers and coops around the world. In addition to their coffee menu they serve sandwiches and baked goods. They even named one of their espresso beans for the neighborhood, with the Flatiron Espresso blend sourced from Guatemala and Brazil.
The famous Strand bookstore has opened as part of the new space, so you can browse and buy great books while there. Interestingly, the whole concept was pulled together as part of the newly re-opened Club Monaco flagship store on the corner, in a retail concept bringing together great coffee, one of the best local bookstores, and the clothing line.
Toby’s is open Monday to Friday from 7am-9pm, Saturday 9am-9pm, and Sunday 10am-7pm.
