Where to get free coffee in NYC on National Coffee Day 2017

Every day is coffee day for many of us, but this Friday, Sept. 29, is the official National Coffee Day.

Hey, whatever reason businesses want to use to get us more caffeinated for less money, we’ll take it. 

Free cups and deals abound. Here’s what the chains are doing:

Gregorys Coffee: Free 12-oz. pumpkin spice lattes, hot or iced
Dunkin’ Donuts: Buy a medium, large or extra large cup of its signature hot coffee and get a free medium hot coffee
Krispy Kreme: From Friday through Sunday, Oct. 2, score any size free hot coffee or a small iced coffee
Tim Hortons: Through Oct. 8, get a free original, dark roast, decaf or iced coffee in any size by ordering through the coffee chain’s app
7-Eleven: Sign up for a 7Rewards membership and get a free hot beverage of any size from Sept. 29-Oct. 1
McDonald’s: Score a small McCafe beverage for $2 on Sept. 29

For those looking to support your neighborhood cafés, here are the indies handing out freebies and offering some great deals on java around New York City:

Round K Cafe

The Lower East Side’s Korean coffeehouse Round K Cafe churns out some of the city’s most unique coffee drinks, including a latte as black as your soul. For fall they’re introducing the Coffee-Men, which packs a cornucopia of seasonal flavors — chestnut, almond, sweet potato and cinnamon, with a kick of bacon — into one rich beverage. Be one of the first 17 customers (for 2017) on National Coffee Day, and you can get one for free. 99 Allen St., roundk.com

Grand Central Terminal

On Friday from 7 a.m.-2 p.m., Vanderbilt Hall will transform into the Grand Central Café, a “European-style café plaza” with latte art demonstrations, performances by Music Under New York artists and, most importantly, $1 cups of coffee from the station’s vendors including Café Grumpy, Financier Patisserie, Brownsville Roasters at the Great Northern Food Hall, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, Joe Coffee, Oren’s Daily Roast, Shake Shack, and Zaro’s Family Bakery. Or try a 4-ounce sample of them all for $5, with proceeds from all sales going to Coffee Kids, a nonprofit that works to empower growers’ families. 89 E. 42nd St., grandcentralterminal.com

Tiny’s & The Bar Upstairs

The Tribeca neighborhood restaurant, Tiny’s & The Bar Upstairs, will hook you up with free java in their oh-so-chic millennial pink cups. Just walk by their outdoor patio between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. for a caffeine fix — and maybe one of chef Eduardo Martinez’s double chocolate espresso cookies? 135 West Broadway, tinysnyc.com

Birch Coffee

Putting trust in the uncaffeinated is rarely smart, but that’s what Birch Coffee is doing. On Sept. 29, pay what you please for any coffee beverage — which may change once you realize how much goes on behind the scenes of quality java, from how it’s grown to sourcing and getting to your cup. Nine locations in Manhattan and Queens, birchcoffee.com


Roll up to the Time Hotel’s Goldfinch coffee bar between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. for a free cup of Stumptown drip coffee or a shot of cold brew. 224 W. 49th St., thetimehotels.com

Num Pang Kitchen

Your favorite Southeast Asian-inspired sandwich shop Num Pang Kitchen has a new app; download and show it at any of its five Manhattan locations for a free Cambodian Iced Coffee. numpangkitchen.com

Black Fox Coffee

You may not get the same cup of joe twice at this Aussie café in the Financial District because their beans are constantly changing. For National Coffee Day, Black Fox Coffee is serving flat whites (an Australian-style latte) for $2 all day, with a side of espresso brownie. Plus, learn the art of pour-over coffee at a free workshop at 4:30 p.m. 70 Pine St., blackfoxcoffee.com

Le Petit Parisien

Make it a French morning at Le Petit Parisien, where the purchase of any pastry or sandwich gets you a free coffee all day long (so if you wanted to stop by twice, they’d be happy to hook you up). Their brews are made with Malongo beans from France. From 7:30 a.m. at 249 E. 53rd St., Midtown East, or 8:30 a.m. at 32 E. Seventh St., East Village


Stop by Pourt in the East Village anytime between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. for a free small cup of Intelligentsia coffee. Whether you stick around for their pastries or to do a little co-working is up to you. 35 Cooper Square

Trademark Taste + Grind

It’s not quiiite fall yet, so if Friday is another balmy day, go for a Cold Brew Soft Serve with mocha crumble from Trademark Taste + Grind. It’s made in house and free all day starting at 7 a.m., or just $2 for the rest of the weekend. 38 W 36th St., ingoodcompany.com/trademark
