Rize Coffee - NYC

Location: 122 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10168, USA
Yankee Stadium! 

On our way to Grand Central Station to catch the Yankees Game, we decided to grab coffee and breakfast at Rize Coffee.

I got this huge chocolate croissant for $4. 
My wallet went "ouch"...and I was totally disappointed because this wasn't an amazing croissant or anything - it was relatively simple: flaky and not too buttery. 
I also got a Rize Classic Juice $6 made with apple, pear and carrot. They used the real fruit and blended it all together. I thought the raw carrot flavour was kinda overpowering and the drink had the sandy texture of the pears and carrot. Very simple - and pricey. 

Overall: Rize Coffee had good reviews on Yelp, but I wasn't impressed: (1) the girl behind the counter forgot my order and (2) the mediocre chocolate croissant and juice were overpriced.
