This morning when I woke up, I was in the mood for a leisurely workout and wanted a break from my normal gym routine. With that in mind, I decided to walk The High Line from start to finish. For those of you who haven’t been, The High Line is an above street-level park and walkway in New York City that was built on old railroad tracks. The High Line truly has something for everyone, from beautiful views of the water, benches to sit and read, beautiful tree-shaded pathways, and you guessed it: a coffee stand, which is run by Blue Bottle Coffee!
Being that I was working up a sweat, I decided to get an iced coffee with almond milk, which they offer in only one size (I would say it’s a medium). I was so happy to see that almond milk is offered as a non-dairy option, despite the fact that it costs extra. On that note, the almond milk doesn’t water down the coffee, which still had a very strong taste after the milk was added. The barista asked me if I wanted any sweetener added, but I decided to go without in hopes that I could add my own at the bar. Unfortunately for me, they only had white sugar on the bar, so I decided to pass and have an unsweetened coffee (hey it’s healthier anyway). Also to note, Blue Bottle sells baked goods as well and there is a seating area with plenty of tables and chairs. At $5.36, I’m not sure that I loved my coffee enough to get it again, but I would definitely try their other options on my next visit to The High Line!
