I’ve had a coffee shop on my YELP bookmarks for forever and this weekend I finally wandered by it. Laughing Man Coffee is located at 184 Duane Street in Tribeca in downtown Manhattan and I called it “Wolverine’s Coffee Shop” because it’s a little known fact that Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, owns the spot.
There’s a fake green lawn outside the cafe with lots of seating and inside the shop is super tiny. The walls are lined with bags of gourmet coffee and yogurts and juices and the simple menu is posted on the wall.
Fear not, if you’re avoiding dairy, they have lots of alternative options. I ordered an oat milk matcha latte and it was delicious. It was also $5.38. Ugh.
Drinking here supports Jackman’s “Laughing Man Foundation,” which is a non-profit that supports coffee farmers around the world. If you’re looking to catch a glimpse of Hugh Jackman, and to be caffeinated, drop by this sunny little shop in the triangle below Canal Street.
