The line for coffee is always long at Oren's but their roasts come from all over the world, and some are caffeine-heavy enough to give even the most devoted coffee fanatic a twitch. Order the Beowulf Blend for espresso, or pick your own beans from a wall of dispensaries. Pastries are driven in from Balthazar and the number of loose leaf tea options rival that of brewed beans. Ogling the shelves filled with coffee tchotchkes -- mugs emblazoned with Freudian slips or Einstein cartoons -- will make the wait for coffee much, much easier. --Jessica Goodman
