Art Café of Nyack, Nyack

What Makes It “Strong”: The Art Cafe of Nyack gets its organic coffee beans exclusively from Counter Culture Coffee, a North Carolina distributor that sells beans directly from farmers and cooperatives all around the world. Counter Culture focuses on quality, sustainability, and education.

The café says that because it believes that a cup of coffee is “an intimate experience,” it brews each one individually. Manager Richelle Ortiz said two of the top customer favs are its espresso, which is made with “Big Trouble,” a blend of beans from Peru and Papua New Guinea, and “46,” a brew concocted of dark roasted beans from Guatemala and Ethiopia. Having such a direct connection with sources helps buyers and growers alike, explained Ortiz, because both have more control over best practices which results in better harvests and an improved product.

On the food side, expect a quirky and diverse vegetarian/vegan menu with a Mediterranean bent.
