NYC Starbucks: 52nd & 8th

1 Jan


The first thing that attracts me is the charming exterior on the north-west corner of 52nd and 8th. Even though I assuredly passed by 4-5 other Starbucks locations on my stroll up 8th ave, this one seems to shout: “Pick me, pick me!” So I do.

This Theatre District Starbucks is surprisingly spacious and offers both large table seating and intimate tables lining a cushioned bench. You may need to wait-it-out a bit for a seat though. Placed right on the boarder of the Hell’s Kitchen scene and Broadway shows galore, it definitely pulls a lot of foot-traffic. 

The Good:

The Location… Whether your going for a show or a night out, this Starbucks is convenient for both.

The Eclectic Decor… w/dark espresso wood, old faded mirrors, and mismatched chairs.

The Bad:

The Crowd… A little too touristy for a sit-down.

Restroom… Just one for both Men & Women (typical NYC Starbucks).

Barista Friendliness:

A good blend of speediness and friendliness.


Drink of Choice: 

Iced Coffee on a cold day.


Overall Starbucks Rating:
