Top 10 New York City Coffee Shops for Decaf Coffee

It goes without saying that New York City has an expansive, flourishing coffee scene. But amidst its maelstrom of great coffee spots, how many of them offer fantastic decaf? As with many cities, New York is plagued with serious coffee spots that simply refuse to serve decaf. Fortunately, there’s plenty of shops that do. Here’s a few of the best spots to grab a cup of decaf throughout NYC.
