Our Story

 Hungry Ghost Coffee was founded in 2012 by Murat Uyaroglu, an immigrant from Turkey. We opened our first location in Prospect Heights on the corner of Flatbush and 6th avenues, home to a former health food store whose owners closed up shop to focus on selling kale chips.  We quickly expanded to Fulton Street in Fort Greene, renovating an old tire shop on a bright and busy corner.  Our goal from day one has been to create a warm, welcoming gathering spot for the community while serving the highest quality coffee and food items.  To that end, we have been proud to partner with Stumptown Coffee since we first opened our doors.  We now have 13 locations throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan and are happy to say this includes serving students within the NYU Tisch campus as well as visitors to the High Line.   Additionally, we partner with many local businesses, such as Ovenly and BKLYN Larder.  As the number of Hungry Ghost Coffee outlets continues to expand, our entire team remains committed to ensuring the highest levels of service and quality throughout the operation. Hungry Ghost Coffee customers and staffers form a family and community that is joyful, focused and proud.
