The Lexington Avenue location of Joe Coffee was crowded when we arrived. A long table with stools placed around took up most of the space; a ledge ran along a wall providing some additional seating. The space was tight as a line of people waiting to order snaked around the seating area, making for a less than pleasant experience.
This location of Joe is a very live space. It was tolerable but not comfortable. One annoying customer who droned on to anyone and everyone was distracting, and in a small space there is no escape. Unnecessarily loud music did not help.
If you really need coffee and you’re standing on Lexington Avenue between 74th and 75th Street outside of Joe, sure, consider it. But if you want a calm, comfortable spot to enjoy that coffee, we suggest keep on walking.
Monday through Saturday: 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Sunday: 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
