COFFEED Opens Its Kiosk on the 40th Street Allee

After our last three stops on the tour of the new Bryant Park food kiosk operators, Le Pain Quotidien, Breads Bakery, and Wafels & Dinges, we arrive at the recently opened COFFEED kiosk.

Located on the 40th Street Allee, right by Le Carrousel and Bryant Park Games, the COFFEED kiosk has a variety of salads, sandwiches, juices, and pastries. It's a great place to stop by for a quick snack or for a full, nutritious meal.

For our lunch, we tried a salad called the Brooklyn, "The Green" juice, and a classic New York City black and white cookie.

My meal from left to right: black and white cookie, The Green juice, and The Brooklyn salad.

The salad came ready to eat, with a variety of fresh toppings already mixed in. The Brooklyn had juicy tomatoes, crunchy radish, and creamy mozzarella, all drizzled with a balsamic dressing. The portion was very large, more than those tiny, overpriced Midtown salads we are used to.

The Green juice was also refreshing on a warm day in the park. With kale, parsley, pear, cucumber, and celery, it was perfectly sweet and tangy. It is a great post-Bryant Park Yoga treat.

The menu offers a comprehensive collection of snack- and entree-sized items.

Last but definitely not least, the black and white cookie was sublime. Having tasted many a classic New York City black and white in my day, COFFEED's cookie definitely stood up to the test.

All in all, it seems to us that the COFFEED kiosk is the place to go in the park for health-conscious food that doesn't taste like it's health-conscious. With all the fitness classes going on in the park each day, we can't think of a better operator for the kiosk!

An added bonus of treating yourself to a meal at COFFEED is that the organization donates between 3-10% of revenue to local charitable partners. Now that is something that you can feel good about inside and out.
