    Use Dining Dollars instead of cash or Campus Cash

    Wait forever for a drink to be made only to find out they completely forgot and you're going to be fifteen minutes late for class.

    Make no mistake: this Starbucks will stop at nothing to provide you with an awful experience.

    Longest line in the world filled with college students. Basically it's the daytime version of Williamsburg or the LES - just substitute alcohol for caffeine.

    The lines are long but they move really quick. Plus the baristas are really nice - be nice to them and theyll be nice to you. Sometimes they'll let you cut the line or even get free drinks.

    Where everybody knows your name

    If you're wondering where to spend your useless Dining Dollars, this is the place to go to!

    Robin Kim · April 6, 2011
  • Patti K.

    It's run by NYU so no Starbucks card purchases or free wifi (you have to be an NYU student.) get to know the baristas, though, and you can get lots of free coffee ;)

    Patti Kilroy · October 26, 2010

    Enjoy waiting behind undergrads as they sample their drinks at the sugar/milk station in order to get the perfect blend of strawberry frappucino and splenda.

    Brian Gioia · February 6, 2012
  • Patrick C.

    It's much faster to walk down to the Starbucks on Laguardia & Houston than wait in line here. It's worth the walk!

    Patrick Chen · February 5, 2011
  • Ameet P.

    The barstools are absurdly tall here.

    Ameet Padte · September 21, 2013
  • Karen B.

    Saves my life one venti sweetened black tea lemonade at a time!

    Karen Bacellar · February 14, 2012
  • NYU Dining A.

    Come and mix up your new frappuccino try one of the 30 new combinations today, perfect for these hot days! Use your Dining Dollars here!

    NYU Dining ARAMARK · June 29, 2011
  • Caroline O.

    They do Frappaccino Happy Hour here! But if you aren't an NYU student, would be better going to the B'way one to avoid the line anyway.

    Caroline Osse · May 1, 2012
  • Whit R.

    If Davis isn't present, then you may actually get some work done.

    Whit Rothe · April 17, 2012
  • Nicholas B.

    Consistently the longest lines of any Starbucks..and that's saying something

    Nicholas Breslove · September 21, 2011
  • AnotherMexicanFromTexas

    Remember people: One drink:one hour; have some coffee etiquette !

    AnotherMexicanFromTexas · December 5, 2010
  • Adrienne M.

    Note that this Sbux is NOT a regular franchise. It is owned by NYU. Thus, your rewards extras won't be valid here, and there will be no consistency re: BYO mug, promotions, etc. NOT A REAL STARBUCKS.

    Adrienne M · November 21, 2010
  • Brandon C.

    Unless you want to wait a long time during school days, come super early or give yourself plenty of time before classes in line.

    Brandon Cochran · August 31, 2011

    Impatient cashier is impatient

    Hung Truong · June 30, 2011
  • Emma B.

    The worst Starbucks ever. Do not step in there unless you're on an NYU meal plan, or you need caffeine before an all nighter in bobst.

    Emma B · May 12, 2011
  • Jinna W.

    Gingerbread lattes are back!

    Jinna W · November 10, 2010
  • Yu Hang L.

    They don't have the payment solution to process your smartphone's Starbucks application so paying for your purchase will take a longer duration. The staff manually type in your card number.

    Yu Hang Lin · March 8, 2013
  • HashtagNYU

    Use campus cash or dining dollars here. And don't worry, the line moves quickly.

    HashtagNYU · October 19, 2012
  • NYU Dining A.

    Try the new Blonde Roast! It is sure to satisfy your afternoon caffeine fix!

    NYU Dining ARAMARK · February 20, 2012
  • Jenn P.

    NYU students everywhere! good luck finding a seat.

    Jenn Park · November 9, 2011
  • sava s.

    though the line gets long, it moves pretty quick. sometimes the baristas can be brusque, but you can kill them with kindness :) sandwiches are meh.

    sava singh · September 8, 2010
  • Stacy C.

    Lines are too long and move slowly...

    Stacy C · March 10, 2010
  • Matt P.

    This is one of the worst Starbucks franchises I've ever been to. Noisy place, slow service and long lines make it totally not worth it. Try Think Coffee around the corner for a better cup.

    Matt Pecori · January 31, 2010
  • Nick R.

    If you're nice to them, they're nice to you. A smile can go a long way, sometimes even to a free upsize!

    Nick Rivera · August 16, 2013
  • Arjun K.

    This is the Slowest Starbucks on Earth!

    Arjun K · April 30, 2013
  • Jessica H.

    Come right before classes let out! NO LINE!

    Americans consume an average 9 lbs of coffee each year. The average person in Finland consumes 27 lbs.

    Bloomberg TV HD · November 23, 2012
  • Kerry M.

    Longass lines so get here at least 10 minutes before class. It is NOT your last minute grab and go coffee place, but it IS the only useful place for dining dollars.

    Kerry McEnerney · September 20, 2012
  • Chris G.

    Wifi is only for NYU students.

    Chris Gampat · April 8, 2012
  • Maria F.

    If Melissa is making the drinks, ask for the Melissa Chai. So good!!!

    Maria F · April 5, 2012

    Expensive coffee with long long make this place the state of the art coffee shop. (1 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    New Skinny beverages are tasty and low calorie, try one today

    NYU Dining ARAMARK · February 20, 2012
  • Lucilla C.

    All Xmas latte flavors (caramel brûlée, gingerbread, pumpkin spice) are sooooo good!!!

    Lucilla Comis · December 13, 2011
  • Samantha O.

    Don't go here unless you have to. Super crowded due to nyu. Great coffee drinks and nice service though!

    Samantha Onorato · September 19, 2011
  • Morgan N.

    Not really that great if you don't have an NYU meal plan to spend, but it's so close to campus it's hard to turn down for convince sake.

    Morgan Nelson · September 6, 2011

    Study session !!!

    Peter Stoffan · August 18, 2011

    Closed on Saturdays and Sundays in the summer.

    Melissa is the best employee! She knows my drink order and knew my name the second time I came in!

    Ashley Setzer · June 15, 2011
  • Wes H.

    probably the rudest workers you'll encounter. The prices seem to vary by day

    Wes Holland · January 23, 2011
  • Jeffrey B.

    Go to a different Starbucks...this one is always super busy. Or go to Think or Third Rail Coffee.

    Jeffrey Behm · December 1, 2010
  • Clyde Erwin B.

    There is no FREE wi-fi here. What's up with that?

    Clyde Erwin Barretto · September 14, 2010
  • Iker A.

    Tip for the Starbucks corporation: hire more people, get more tables and bring another coffee machine for this location. It's getting ridiculous...

    Iker AH · September 13, 2010
  • CitySlips

    Visit the NYU campus Starbucks--alumnae and CitySlips' co-founders Katie Shea and Susie Levitt's old stomping ground. Try the new caramel coffee lite frap! deLISH
