n. The possibility of everything.


Located in the vibrant NoMad neighborhood of New York City, Blank Slate is a bustling café, coffee bar and marketplace.


We take pride in offering quality dining with neighborhood charm. Our menu presents an abundant assortment of gourmet breakfast options and flavor-packed sandwiches, salads and small plates to enjoy in house or take away. Our beverage selection proudly offers the finest in artisan coffees and teas and a vast list of craft beer and wine. The Blank Slate Market displays a curated collection of artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, freshly baked pastries, desserts and handcrafted culinary products from around the world. We also provide a variety of catering services, ranging from daily office orders to private offsite events.

A "blank slate" offers an opportunity for creativity, ideation and growth. No boundaries. No holds barred. A limitless palette. The possibility of everything.

We bring this concept to life with a menu that pushes boundaries and reinvents the classics to deliver distinctive cuisine bursting with fresh flavor. Industrial and modern influences perfectly collide in this open dining space exuding energy, warmth and innovation in every corner.  The brainchild of husband and wife team Zach Israel and Ashley Jaffe, Blank Slate celebrates culinary excellence, gracious service and inspired creativity. 

Start fresh with an early cup of coffee or close out your day with a glass of beer or wine. Order at the counter, settle in and we will bring you your meal. Think of us as an extension of your own home and office, where you can come and go with ease, hold court or simply sit back and take in the sights. You’ll be among friends at Blank Slate.
