Jack’s Stir Brew — 74.3 decibels

Jack’s Stir Brew on W. 10th Street was the first location of this New York City mini-chain.  It’s still popular, and as a result, it can be difficult to find a seat in this small place. But we did!

And we’re glad we did.  The place was pretty calm.  In fact, the decibel reading was higher than anticipated.  We suspect the meter picked up the conversation at the next table, not that the couple was loud (they weren’t).  Whatever the reason, it was a relaxing 74.3 decibels. This location of Jack’s is a very chill space, which is how a coffee shop should be.

Jack’s Stir Brew offers very good coffee and a small selection of sweet treats. It’s usually crowded, but unlikely to get impossibly loud as there are just a few seats and background music is not obtrusive.  Recommended.
