Two Hands is one of only a handful (no pun intended) of Australian café’s in NYC. Coffee culture in Australia is actually a pretty serious thing (who knew?).
In Manhattan alone there’s over 200 Starbucks locations on an island that’s only 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles wide. From this, we can assume this is because New Yorkers think Starbucks has good coffee. However, in Australia, there are only 24 Starbucks locations in the entire country after closing 61 of them from a lack of business.
All of this comes down to the fact that Australia has extremely high standards in their quality of coffee, so adding an Australian café, sitting between Little Italy and Chinatown, only makes sense to true coffee lovers of NYC.
The coffee alone is worth stopping by for, but the delicious and health conscious light bites are an added bonus. Two Hands has a number of healthy breakfast/lunch options like granola bowls, salads, smoothies, acai bowls, avocado toast, and more.
So bypass the Starbucks chains and head over to Two Hands for more than an average cup of joe.
