Ralph’s Coffee: A Hidden Coffeeshop Gem In Central Midtown

I was checking out post holiday sales on flannel at Ralph Lauren Polo this week when I stumbled upon the most unexpected little coffee shop tucked away on their second floor, Ralph’s Coffee.  Cute, right?!

Coffee shops (other than Starbucks and super duper expensive hotel cafes) are hard to come by in the central midtown area, so this was a real treat to find.  I grabbed an oatmeal raisin cookie ($3) and a cup of joe ($3), and secured a spot by the window, watching snow flurries and 5th avenue hustle and bustle.  Besides being spacious, Ralph’s also offers free wi-fi and plenty of plugs to charge up your devices.

The inspiration for the cafe, from the inventor of preppy himself, goes as such: “The smell of freshly brewed coffee evokes so many memories for me, mostly of times spent with friends and family, the people I love.  I wanted to develop these coffee blends in that spirit and create a place where people could come together and take a break from their busy days.”  Touche, Mr. Lauren.

Besides, I think we can all agree that coffee trumps flannel any day…at least for the wallet;-)
