Joe the Art of Coffee
This place serves the best cortado I've had in NY. It's so good that, before I realized this was a chain with seven locations around the city, I used to bike all the way from Williamsburg to 85th and Columbus just to get a cup. 

This is cortado: 

Other good places for this delicious, Spanish espresso drink: 
Everyman Espresso - E 13TH between 3rd & 4th ave. 
El Beit in Williamsburg - N8th & Bedford.

If you're around Union Square and Flatiron, there are 2 decent places I've found for coffee: 

'My Way Cup' on the East corner of 23rd St and Park Ave South (just past the subway entrance) - Cool little place run by good dudes. They saved me from Starbucks every day before work. 

There's also a place opposite Madison Square Park on 23rd St and 5th Ave called 'Eataly' (it's a massive space of all types of foods where you can eat. You can get a good coffee in there in the LaVazza section on the 5th Ave side of the building.
