    Great view of Chinatown from the top floor, great place to focus and get work done.

    Really cool upstairs seating here with large open windows. Provides a good view of Chinatown!

    Go upstairs! One of the only places I've found in DC with ample seating and wifi.

    This is WORST Starbucks I've ever been to. Upstairs seating is nice, good for people watching. But staff is rude and slow because they're too busy arguing in front of customers to place your order.

    Remember to always buy something first before using the restroom or you'll get yelled at! ;)

    Don't rely on the Wi-Fi. It is hit or miss here. Also, the staff is more worried about having a good time than making customers happy.

    Love the upstairs seating here, but it closes two hours before the downstairs does. Hardly any seating or outlets down there.

    One of my last few visits at Starbucks. They do not allow cigsrs or pipes outside anymore. Caribou here I come. Using up credits on my card, then moving where my money and business is appreciated.

    Contrary to most tips here, I got the right drink & pastry served very fast. I think the key is to not get anything too complicated.

    Aside from never being prepared for the morning rush, mid-day service isn't the best either. Seriously miss the 14th & NY Ave Bux :(

    Baristas are friendly and there's plenty of seating up stairs, but the wifi is awful. If you need to get work done online,

    The line in the morning can be intimidating- but this place runs pretty quickly.

    I like the public art outside. Look through the keyholes to the quotes inside the tube.

    Worst Starbucks. People don't understand you order. In fact, they just don't understand you in general (asked for a very berry refresher almost get an expresso if don't paying attention...)

    I've never gotten good service here. Always slow. And their employees wear too much make-up.

    Why do they always close off the upstairs at night? It's too crowded downstairs.

    For being in a high volume area, they have some pretty swift service.

    There are far better Starbucks in the area. Staff can be snarly due to crowds. Drinks are often made incorrectly.

    Out of ingredients again and they don't tell you till you ask why your drink tastes funny! Don't come here, there are plenty of other Starbucks 1 block away!
