If all those morning coffees are burning a venti-sized hole in your pocket, then take today off of worrying about it and enjoy a freebie. Today is National Coffee Day, for those of you who didn’t know, and our friends over at Grub Street have rounded up all the spots in New York City where you can score a free or cheap cup o’ joe today. At some spots, like Krispy Kreme, donuts are included!
The list of participating shops includes Dunkin Donuts (66 cents/cup), Krispy Kreme (free + donut), Peet’s Coffee (free drink with any food item) and more.
Admittedly, free or cheap coffee means you might have to settle for crappy chain coffee instead of your usual third-wave espresso, as there aren’t so many indie coffee shops taking part in the holiday. But Toby’s Estate (125 N. 6th St.) is offering 20% off their Black and White pre-bottled cold brew, so hey, that’s something. And who wants to sit in one of those wifi-limited coffee shop libraries today, anyway! Grab yourself a shitty free coffee on the go, and save the extra few bucks for something better tomorrow.
