What do you do when you're in an unknown part of town and desperately need some quality caffeine to perk yourself up? You won't be stuck with a questionable cup of joe from a random bodega, thanks to this practical map of coffee places by Manhattan subway stops. It comes from the app creators at Butterfruit Labs, and they've spotlighted mostly indie java joints we love from Alphabet City's Ninth Street Espresso to Irving Farm Coffee Roasters on the Upper West Side.
Though the map's recommendations don't all match our own preferences—Dunkin' Donuts at 110th Street and Central Park North was the best option? Really?—it's a tool that'll come in handy in a pinch. (Consult our list of the best new coffeeshops in town for the cream of the crop.) Just one request—can someone please create the same app for pizza, ice cream and wings?
