Following the opening of new cafes in Boston, Chicago, Virginia and Los Angeles, For Five has expanded to bring New York’s financial district into its marketplace.

For Five Coffee has opened its biggest-footprint cafe to date in the heart of New York’s Financial District on Thursday, June 6th. Serving as the company’s flagship location in the financial district, the cafe is expected to have high volume as it caters to one of the city’s busiest neighborhoods. The curated grab-and- go menu is designed to match that high traffic with little to no wait times and is run by German Villatoro, the executive chef at Convene.

“For Five brings a superior specialty coffee and food experience, and we are excited for the launch of our Financial District Flagship store,” says Tom Tsiplakos, the co-founder of For Five Coffee.

Along with the expanded selection of ready-made food options, the cafe features the staple coffee program that For Five is famous for including specialty drinks like The Five, The Louie, and the Freddo Espresso. Unique For Five apparel — tote bags, caps, shirts, and hoodies — can also be purchased in the cafe as well as our famous cold brew and stuffed cookies. The new cafe is one of over fifteen For Five cafes across the country.

The state-of-the-art cafe features a uniquely modern design inspired by the architecture of the city itself with a modern and minimalist feel. It’s the ideal space to refuel with a quick bite to eat and a coffee or to set up shop and get some work done. The cafe adds a vibrancy to the neighborhood that will be sure to attract crowds.

The 1 Liberty cafe is in partnership with Convene and follows the opening of cafes in LA, New York, and Chicago.
