New York: Coffee Guide iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

I’m thoroughly convinced that the reason why New York City is known as “The City that Never Sleeps” is because there are way too many coffee shops. A person can easily be overwhelmed, which is why sometimes a helpful app is just as important as your morning mocha.

New York: Coffee Guide, developed by (In)Touch Network, Ltd, is a brand-new way to track down the perfect cup of joe in the Big Apple. This isn’t just a simplified collective of addresses and hours; it’s a detailed and definitive guide to independent coffee houses, shops, and cafes.

Concept and Functionality:

Though I don’t live in New York City, I frequently visit for shopping and events. One of my traditions is tracking down an interesting coffee place because that’s where you really feel the local atmosphere. Plus it’s fun to chat with others over an amazing cup of coffee.

New York: Coffee Guide is so much more than a simple list of coffee shops near your current location. It’s a beautifully-designed resource which is incredibly helpful for anyone in search of a new place to go.

There are quite a few ways to use the app. First, you can search for shops near your current location and display them either on a map or in a list. You can quickly and easily see each shop’s rating, and NY:CG only shows cafes which are currently open, saving you the trouble of sifting through each shop’s page to check their hours.

New York: Coffee Guide includes incredibility detailed pages for each venue, showing everything from photos taken within the shop to an “Expert Roundup”. You’ll definitely feel like you’ve been in the shop before if you research it in the guide.

NY:CG also shows ratings for a cafe’s dessert quality, food quality, and atmosphere. This not only means you’re getting a great cuppa coffee, but also an excellent homemade muffin and a friendly place to wind down for a bit.

My absolute favorite feature NY:CG offers is a database which is constantly updating. You don’t have to wait for an app update for new information; the app notifies you if there’s new information available and all you have to do is sync the app with the updated database.

You’ll never have to worry about forgetting a wonderful cafe again thanks to the ability to save a venue to a “Favorites” list.

Multiple search capabilities ensure you’ll always be able to find a great cafe no matter where you are. You can even search by nearest attractions, closes subway station, and New York borough.

Have something to say about a certain cafe? NY:CG allows users to submit their own reviews and ratings to the app, which helps other users as well.

Lastly, there’s a list of the top 25 coffee houses which is expertly selected. This list changes regularly in response to current reviews and ratings.


Whether you’re looking for a quick cup or the next great coffee shop to check out, you NEED to download New York: Coffee Guide. Many apps that cost as much as a latte don’t offer half the features of NY:CG. This is a must-have for anyone in NYC.

New York: Coffee Guide is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
