Here on a weekday? I bet you $5 there's a dude at the center table - laptop perched up on a little stand - playing computer games. Pay up, sucka!
Great for people watching
Try the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and spot it on Foodspotting!

Summer pro tip: half lemonade + half green tea. Unsweetened is key - just the right amount of sweet comes from the lemonade. Look at how refreshing this looks!
The line can be super super long but really moves faster than you'd ever think.
Hollywood Trivia: This is the location where they filmed Sarah Jessica Parker conducting interviews to find an assistant (Jennifer Hudson) in the 1st Sex & The City movie.
Listen to NYU film students talk about how famous they're going to be.
The bathroom line is long, but it's mostly nerdy guys with gadgets, so it goes fast.
They make you repeat your order to two different people.
Order from me. That is all ~
Get a window seat and enjoy the people watching on this active intersection.
Grab a mini liquor bottle from the liquor store a block down to spike your latte.
though its often crowded, its a great to sit and chat it up friends.
My favorite Starbucks. There in twenty for a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
order a quad espresso over ice in a grande cup, topped off with soy (about half the cost of an iced grande soy latte - reverse engineering Starbucks grammar FTW).
consistently good in terms of taste, but watch out! nontraditional orders are a hit or miss - some of your modifiers will occasionally get lost in translation.
Why is it that only one of the two bathrooms is EVER open?
Honestly? You sometimes you can't beat a bold coffee. Solid cuppa, no frills.
Caramel malchiato (or however you spell it) is the way to go if you don't like coffee but still need a pick me up
This is actually a nice Starbucks with very good service and staff. However, I usually opt for the Mud Truck instead bc they have better coffee. I only come here when I need coffee + nosh.
Open 'till 1am on a school night
Essential NYU: Grab a seat by the window and people watch.
Get one pump in the white mocha instead of the ungodly amount they usually put in it. Just the right amount of subtle sweetness.
Customizing your coffee is my favourite thing about Starbucks. I love the Skinny Vanilla Latte & their new Cinnamon Dolce Latte Skinny. Their pumpkin and lemon loaf are also super delish!
So slow! Barista moves at a snails pace. Terrible.
Be careful: There's a mugger who has been spraying mace & stealing Apple equipment at this venue at night. An incident has been reported at least once/week.
The new girl who works here sucks.
If you're here after 4:30 ask for Tess hay
If you're here in the morning ask for Melanie. ;)
Favorite Starbucks in NYC! Great for people watching while studying. It gets crowded during the weekends so you may be standing around for a bit.
Peppermint mocha!! Yum!
Try an unsweetened passion tea lemonade with a splash of the raspberry syrup (pro tip from the barrista)
Most friendly in city. Love Irene in the mornings.
Only a few electrical outlets in the center on the beam by communal table.
How many dumps are taken here a day?
The food is cheaper than the drinks! Try a bacon, egg and cheese english muffin for only $2.50
A good place to hang
The ultimate people watching spot if you can snag a seat by the window with your favorite coffee order.
Always busy, very touristy. Nice staff and very efficient - still, plan on waiting a bit for your beverage.
Those SNL "Verisimo" commercials are eerily accurate....
As a BIG Sex and the City fan visiting this place was a real treat :o)
If you enjoy people watching this is one of the best places to do it.
Multigrain bagels are a cut above others in Starbucks' "New York style" bagel selection. Equally as funny to eat in New York.
I dont like Starbucks its overpriced and not worth it they keep getting my order wrong SOY MILK!!! No wonder it never survived in Australia
Let's be frank. I drink a lot of water. I don't feel weird about public restrooms. But NEVER. Will I EVER. Use this bathroom. You're better off pretending to try a Crunch membership down the block...
Hope you are not busy! Very slow here even when its not busy
