    This is a nice location because it's right near a subway station. Whenever I have classes at the campus school (94th & park), I come here before class and treat myself.

    Love the layout! All Starbucks have either stay & sit or quick & go vibes. This is definitely stay, sit & chill.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Sassy black barista with the red glasses is a douche. He's one of the reasons I try to avoid this location.

    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.

    This Starbucks is less annoying than most of them. Nice young staff, bigger space with windows. Used to be a fab old fashioned pharmacy.

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

    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.

    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.
