  • Coffee scale and coffee beans in containers inside McNulty's

Though Caffè Reggio may be the oldest continually operating cafe, there were many places where you could grab a cup of joe or coffee supplies before the 1920s. McNulty’s Tea and Coffee Co. has been a staple of Greenwich Village since 1895. Not only do they serve a diverse variety of coffees, but they also have an extensive tea selection as well. Inside the shop, even the scales used to weigh the tea leaves and coffee beans are antique. McNulty’s is said to have been founded by two Irish brothers, just up the block from its current location.
