As a frequent visitor of this little city right outside of New York’s capital of Albany, I have had the privilege of spending quite some time in the area and finding some of my favorite local stops! With my sister living right in the area – we love to stop to get some third wave coffee or window shop in our free time. These are a few of my favorite stops:
- Superior Merchandise Company
This multi-roaster gem is half design shop and half coffee shop with an incredible staff and an on-point brand. They feature coffee from different roasters all over the country as well as specialize in tasty lattes and unique toast options. I had the privilege of demoing some of Glen Edith Coffee’s single origin samples at Superior this afternoon and was able to talk coffee – which is my favorite thing to do!
- Forage & Sundry
This beautifully lit shop offers a variety of house plants, simplistic decor and some excellent cooking / gardening tools. They also offer classes for planting and Floral design, so what’s not to love?
- Little Pecks / Pecks Arcade
Serving Tandem Coffee Roasters out of Portland, Maine – this unique space is inviting with its lush greenery and excellent spot for brunch & dinner & drinks. Check out that shiny pink La Marzocco.
Other notable spots:
- Sunhee’s Farm & Kitchen
- Market Block Books
- Dinosaur BBQ (not unique to Troy, just a favorite spot of mine!)
- Bluebird Home Decor
- Troy Public Market
