Village Voice's Description

Since its founding by a trio of aspiring coffee roasters in Seattle in 1971, Starbucks has grown to become the largest coffeehouse in the world, with upwards of 20,000 locations in New York and around the world. Named for the chief mate on the whaling ship from Moby Dick, the company didn't begin chasing the Great White Whale of world java domination until the 1990s, by which time it was opening a new store every day. A turbulent economy has since forced it to retrench, but the chain remains a powerhouse both commercially and politically, thanks to its op-ed-penning chairman, Howard Schultz. A purveyor of whole foods, Starbucks typically farms out its secret recipes to a single, Starbucks-owned bakery in each city, and now sells a good deal of its coffee beans at grocery stores. Find any and all local locations on Voice Places.

    Hope you aren't in a rush.

    Love this Starbucks because it is large and spacious. Although don't use the bathrooms. Unless you really have to.

  • Marc S. on 07/05/10

    Larger than several of the closest Starbucks neighbors, so even when crowded there's a reasonably speedy turnover of seats. I'm here for the Iced Coffee, year round.

  • John on 07/22/12

    Internet connection here is bad.

    I've seen fashion models add fractions hammered faster than service at this Starbucks. I hope their margins are huge cause their manager is an asshole for understaffing this busy location.
