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.
