Border Patrol: Konditori Swedish Espresso Bar

KondotoriSometimes you gotta be where you don’t want to be and you need an oasis (of espresso) to quell your fears and anxiety. I work in Midtown and the only comfort I have from the bustle of suits is a swedish espresso bar called Fika, tucked on 58th St, between 5th & 6th. When you walk in, all the insanity stays outside. Plus, their chocolate balls are to die for.

UntitledI feel the same “get me the hell out of here!” when I walk to the L train at Bedford & North 7th. There are too many, too skinny people buzzing around and my jeans feel tight but not small enough at the same time. Have no fear; Kinditori is here! And, it’s a Swedish espresso bar, too.

The subterranean nook’s low ceilings is a cave of espresso heaven. The barista is always nice and the espressos are short and tasty. Their croissants are delicious to boot. Next time you are about to have a panic attack on Bedford, slip into Konditori, and leave it all behind.

167 No. 7th St

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
