Slave to the Grind
58 Pondfield Rd. Bronxville, NY 914-961-7777
A local institution, especially among Sarah Lawrence College students, this coffee shop is manned by chatty, affable baristas who show a vested interest in their loyal customers. With rows upon rows of loose beans for sale by the shovel, you can also order your coffee or espresso drink from behind the counter, where desserts (including the tempting gluten-free chocolate cake) and other small bites await your consideration. -Chris SericoHours: Mon-Wed: 6 a.m.-10 p.m.; Th-Fri: 6 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sat: 7 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sun: 7 a.m.-10 p.m.
