We uncover the best of NYC's sipping spots: from coffee shops to cozy book stores. 

 
To a certain extent a great cup of coffee is what’s in the coffee. It’s the story behind it, the flavors, nuances, but I think upon moving to New York where there’s just a great café on every block, for me it has shifted. It’s less about the cup of coffee—because there are so many great cups—and more about the place.

New York City is filled with unexplored gems: industrial-styled coffee shops, "stay awhile" cozy nooks and hybrid boutiques perfect for sipping and shopping. The coffee came first, but it's the unique decor and family-like feels that make us want to stay awhile.
