    Friendly and kind Starbucks service, but grab your morning coffee and head east on 96th. Sit in the park between Lex and 3rd Ave. Watch the trains, watch people, relax a bit with some great coffee.

    This place can get a little crazy in the morning. Double check your drink order before scurrying out the door so you don't end up with my tea and I have your Americano.

    Might be a good place to meet a husband if you come on a Sunday morning. So far, a little girl and infant kept staring and coming over to say hi while their divorced dads drank coffee.

    I love the staff here and the atmosphere SO un-Starbuckian -- the place used to be a fab old apothecary which sadly closed but this is a nice place to get coffee.

    I think we know... It's not about the coffee. It's all about the wifi. Just keep your head down and your headphones on and you can surf to your heart's content without a purchase.

    Love the Pikes Place Roast, smoooth. The little brown sugar tarts are like mini pop tarts but just a two bite size ..perfect for the waistline.

    This SBUX is terrible. First i ordered a mocha cookie crumble frap. They are out of one ingredient. So I move to the next item. The caramel. They are out as well. Finally I moved to 3rd item on menu.

    Hazelnut ice coffee, light on the ice (so as not to dilute the flavor as it melts).

    Awesome staff...become a regular and they make a point of having your order ready...priceless, when it's that really needed first cup of the day.

    Don't expect your coffee in a New York minute. Make sure you have about 20 to kill. A tortoise moves faster than these baristas.

    Buy an over-priced mediocre tasting coffee product. You may have seen other such products at similar wallet-raping locations.

    It just took me TWENTY MINUTES to get an iced coffee. They used to have nice employees. Now they are lazy and not too bright!! I was fed up and asked for money back.
