GROUND CENTRAL

Processed with VSCOcam with b2 preset

I visited Ground Central last year to review the midtown coffee house for Joonbug.com (read the review here) and instantly fell in love with the space. I chatted with the founder, French native Etienne Wiik about his vision for the shop and he explained that Ground Central was birthed on the premise of being a coffee shop that embodies the true spirit of New York City.

The interior creatively channels the perspective of a fresh New Yorker to the locals — the murals on the wall pay homages to Andy Warhol’s work and the gritty ramp in the middle of the shop offers a slice into the city’s edgier side. It’s a charming coffee house that encapsulates the vibrant New York spirit.

The coffee, needless to say, is top notch. So if you’re ever in the area, don’t be shy. Come for the coffee, stay for the charm.
