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.

    Smells like old stale bay water when the kids from school are there!

    The guy making my drink was so into his phone conversation that he managed to give me the worlds worst coffee while the store mgr. was standing There. This place has become such a joke.

    If you want coffee before the train, leave yourself at least 10 minutes. The line moves too slowly to ensure that you'll make your train.

  • Scott N. on 02/18/13

    No one at this location ever says thank you.
