I have been buying my coffee at The Sensuous Bean for about 30 years. Wonderful selection, fresh and properly roasted. Do not be mislead by the category, this is in NO WAY a restaurant! You can get coffee and cookies to go, but NOT a restaurant.

We've been visiting the Sensuous Bean for some time now, great selection of coffees and teas. Seating limited as a really small store but well worth a visit for a take out. Part of our sentimental tour around Manhattan. Nearest subway 72nd Street C line

THIS PLACE IS AT 66 WEST 70 St NOT 72nd St. They feature loose teas that are the full-leaf--not chopped up leaves, so the flavor is deep and rich. Drop in and have a cup made for you and then got to CENTRAL PARK 1 block away and enjoy! The organic coffees are hand-picked, fair trade. And their own blend... More

If you want great coffee, then you need to go to the Sensuous Bean. It's a great place... It's New York's coffee place. Go in and get a cup.

While sitting in Central Park, my husband was clamoring for coffee, and a young woman overheard his pleas. She highly recommended Sensuous Bean. So we hightailed it over to the shop. Though recommended by a self-proclaimed "coffee snob" the shop is incredibly low key and welcoming. With it being the only location in the city, I have a warm place... More

I stopped here for a coffee after lunch while walking to a friend's apartment. Pretty nice little place with three or four bar stools to sit on and also a small bench outside. Not a bad little place !!!

I was astounded at the selection of coffees available. I tasted the banana nut pancake coffee- very good. My only suggestion would be to offer cream, not just milk. While I was in there a guy came in with his 2 dogs asking for advice about his coffee grinder. The owner welcomed him and was very helpful and friendly. Coffee... More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
