“The smell of freshly brewed coffee evokes so many memories for me,” says Ralph Lauren, “mostly of time spent with friends and family, the people I love. I wanted to develop these coffee blends in that spirit, and create a place where people could come together and take a break from their busy days.” 

And there’ll be plenty of people flocking to Ralph Lauren’s new coffee shop on the second floor of his Polo Ralph Lauren flagship store on Fifth Avenue. New York has got a brand new coffee shop to rival all others as the new venture will offer the fashion designers very own blend of coffee, teas, fresh juices, pastries, sandwiches and some of the designers favourite sweet treats.

Complete with branded mugs, takeaway cups and coffee packaging, the space within the historic building is decked out in a shabby chic style with white wash boards, vaulted ceilings and mosaic-tiled floors providing the perfect backdrop to relax with a cup of joe.
