Type in McNulty’s into Google and again and again, entry after entry, you’ll find articles waxing hyperbolically about the feeling of stepping back in time as you enter the tea and coffee shrine that is this Greenwich Village staple. And you know what? They are all right. Since 1895, the atmosphere of McNulty’s has barely changed with sacks of coffee and tea from around the world littering the cluttered floor, causing a waft of aroma so intoxicating, that it seems to lure people in off the street.
Like the few rare shops in New York that have survived the annals of time, McNulty’s holds true to the traditions of the past; the loose tea and coffee beans are served straight out of the 19th century bins they have always been stored in by a staff that aren’t merely there to ring up an order but who are utter experts in the consumption of a great cuppa. The shop is not only the oldest coffee purveyor in New York, but it is one of the oldest in the country.
