Ralph’s Coffee Now Open Uptown
Yesterday, I had a chance to visit the just opened Ralph’s Coffee in the Ralph Lauren Women’s and Home mansion at 888 Madison Avenue. It’s such a treat to have this chic coffee shop uptown where you can not only get a coffee or tea but some sweets and gifts. They can also make you a chai tea latte even though it’s not on the menu. While the store opens at 10:00am, the coffee shop will be open at 8:00am so you can get your caffeine fix on the way to work. Ralph Lauren (the man, the myth, the legend) himself stopped by for a coffee right before I arrived so never know who you might see. If you don’t live near 72nd Street, fear not, Ralph’s Coffee trucks will be strategically parked around the city including right next to the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. The coffee cafe is scheduled to remain open at least six months but may stay open longer if all goes well. Fingers crossed!
