    Can't stand eating at a scene like this but some people don't care. So it's up to you honestly

    It's Starbucks in the middle of a ghetto I mean c'mon. It's uncomfortably close to a vast amount of beggars and crack heads. I recommend the one on 7th Ave. It's a lot better but crowded inside.

    Not the only one, in Harlem

    Every time i go to this Starbucks on 125th, there are always druggies hanging out there, taking up space from paying customers...😑

    God I wish all the Starbucks played the music this Harlem location does ;)

    Took forever and the bottom of the cup was covered in honey which of course ended up all over my hands. And to top it off they over filled the cup and coffee poured out everywhere.

    This is the slowest Starbucks ever. Filled with a staff that hates their jobs

    Possibly the slowest Starbucks on earth. Literally hate coming here but have no choice,because it's close.

    No plugs to sit and charge anything...

    No restroom. No AC outlets. 5.... Yes, 5 seats.

    These are some of the nicest baristas in the city if you respond to them like you would like to have someone respond to you. They even remember my drink.

    Be prepared to wait. This is one of the slowest starbucks I've been to in manhattan

    The lines are always long and slow

    Very slow service not worth your time unless you have lots of time to kill

    Understaffed. And the staff that *is* there isn't ... always there. Talk about the B-Team. Definitely sub-par.

    My favorite Crew in the city!! Darwin is the coolest!!

    They need to work on moving these lines a little quicker. Always a long line! And baristas aren't with it either.

    This may be one of the best spots for people watching in all of NYC. 125th and Lenox.

    There are literally 3 stools at this location. If you want to sit down, it won't be here.

    Plan a little extra time for a visit; not the best staffed SBs.

    Like most other chain places on 125th, you'll find guys at the door who want to open it for you, in exchange for some cash when you leave. I mean, really? I can open my own door and save myself $1, th

    Try the classic crumb cake. Ask for a piece from the center of the pan because the edge pieces tend to be harder.
