Voyager Espresso Cafe Review - Interior photo - New York, Financial District

 

Hidden in a nondescript tunnel attached to the Fulton St. subway station, Voyager is a refreshing change from the sort of samey visual aesthetic a lot of specialty cafes have embraced. With a name and logo referencing the Voyager space probe (which just celebrated its 40th anniversary), the vibe is decidedly otherworldly. A circular bar dominates the space, surrounded by metallic paint, dark marble, and metal grating. Despite the harsh materials and lighting, the space feels cozy — helped along by welcoming baristas.

I visited a few times during jury duty (a brisk walk will get you to the financial district and back with barely enough time for lunch and a coffee). It’s a challenge finding the right subway entrance, and you’re bound to get lost a couple times, but Voyager is worth the effort! From espresso to filter coffee to espresso tonic, everything was well prepared — and came presented in an ‘gram-worthy, fun deconstructed format.

When I stopped by they were serving coffee from Denver’s Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters, but it looks like they’ve switched to a Danish roaster called La Cabra. Despite the minimalist looking menu (above), Voyager serves most standards, plus things like espresso tonic and something called the “Barista’s Breakfast” that includes a single shot espresso, cappuccino, and a filter coffee – which sounds about perfect to me. There are also a few light food options: porridge, chia pudding, toasts, and a vegan BLT.

If you do plan a visit, note that they’re only open Monday-Friday, and close at 5PM.
