The Garment District isn’t exactly known for a stellar specialty coffee scene, so the fact that there are two excellent ones a mere block from each other is pretty great. Culture Espresso is the original, but it’s snug, which means you might have to wait for a seat. The newer and significantly bigger Culture 36 is ideal for getting stuff done, if you don’t mind the semi-loud music. Both locations brew Heart Coffee Roasters coffee and serve their famous house-baked chocolate chip cookies (they sell out fast so come on the earlier side).
