Description

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.

    the secret starbucks. Its the least packed in the area due to scaffolding. No wait time in the morning

    Hands down, the very best starbucks in NYC. Especially if you're a regular. They see my face & my drink is ready before I even get on the line! Amazing, super friendly staff. Quick even when crowded!

    My fave Starbucks ever. Best little hidden location. Little crowding and does not have the signature burnt taste to the coffee I get at other Starbucks.

    If you're from a school nearby you get a student discount :)

    Not that any starbucks bathrooms are really that clean, but since these fit the norm try going across the street to the Time Warner Center. The bathrooms on the second floor are incredibly clean.
