Underline Coffee is located by the 20th Street entrance to the High Line in West Chelsea. The attractive space was busy during our early afternoon visit. While the crowd was mostly quiet, once again we were assaulted by music that was too loud. There were the usual coffee-making sounds, but they weren’t that bad. No, it was just the music. Had the volume been lowered one or two notches, the space could have been comfortable.
Still, there aren’t many other options in the immediate location, and the coffee was good, so you could do worse. With luck, perhaps whoever is working that day may show some restraint. The noise level wasn’t awful, but that shouldn’t be the measure. Underline Coffee is tolerable, but it could be far more.
