    Best coffee I have ever had in the US. Definitely worth the 12 block hike! So good I only got 100m down the road before heading back for another. A must stop destination for Australian coffee drinkers in New York.

    Great little coffee shop, good coffee selection and a wonderful menu of eating options. The staff was very welcoming even though it’s in a very busy location and customers come in and out by the minute. You can still grab a table if you wait about 5-10 minutes.

    Best brunch in midtown east! No doubt about it. Great coffee too, and if you love your pour over, they got it down to a science. Only drawback is that the place is a bit tight, so not exactly ideal for groups

    Excellent breakfast and the coffee was really great. You can't always find a flat white in the states, especially a good one, so this was a treat! I had the avo smash benedict and it was delicious.

    My favourite little coffee shop in NYC and here’s a secret for those Avocado lovers: Little Collins serve the BEST Avocado on Toast in the city! And trust me I’ve tried quite a few! It’s called The Smash and I add a poached egg too! My second favourite dish is The Uncle Fred which is banana bread and berries... perfect if you want a sweet breakfast. @Lilfitmiss

    I’m going to be honest. I usually don’t feel good at all those hipster coffee places. After all, what happened to the good old fashioned American diner, right ? I don’t get the concept of having to listen to some minimal House Music tracks in an unfurnished place where the waiters look like they are still in the process of downing from their weekend techno rave drug high and are trying to remember what happened in the past 48 hours while serving you a coffee like substance that tastes like a lot of different things except for coffee. Let’s better not talk about the “food”, I don’t want to get into too much detail about the (typically three)pastries that are usually still available and look like they really were tasty back when Bill Clinton was president. Little Collins NYC is therefore a nice surprise. Here is why: 1.It is a small location that was furnished in a really nice way, making it possible for people to actually sit down and enjoy their beverages or food. 2.The place is CLEAN (which is sadly not a given). 3.Their coffee was really amazing, my wife tried a Latte that was unbelievably good. 4. The staff was super friendly and welcoming, even when it was a really busy time of the day for them. 5. They played Soul Music. :-) 6. We did not try the food as we were just stopping by but what I saw looked really fresh and appetizing. I will happily come back!!!

    Wow, this place is great The sandwiches are amazing! Highly recommend. Definitely better to take out than eat in. It's a bit small. Don't worry too much about the constant line, it moves very quickly and there are plenty of friendly staff on hand.

    Great food, bright space, delicious coffee. This place is a madhouse though and finding seating is almost impossible. I also don't think they use their space quite as efficiently as they could.

    Great coffee and small menu of good quality breakfasts. Enjoyed the smashed avocado on toast with chili flakes. Named after Little Collins Street in Melbourne, Australia complete with an authentic street sign delivered by Robert Doyle. Not many seats and usually busy.

    If you love coffee this is the place for you. There is another place this good in the United States and it used to be on the left hand side of the White House. Now it is on the right hand side, and I have it on good authority that when the move happened it was a big deal. Swings. Little Collins may be a little better... Oh and the food at Little Collins is exquisite. One can get Vegemite in lots of places in the US but the chorizo eggs are to die for.
