So far TriBeCa has been one of the most impressive neighborhoods I’ve visited — at least as far as Starbucks is concerned. Don’t get me wrong. The neighborhood is beautiful. I love the low buildings here that are contrasted by the towering skyscrapers of the nearby Financial District. And there seems to be an endless possibility of cafes, restaurants and trendy bars to jump in and out of. I’m making a note to come back here on a day when I have time to visit more than just Starbucks.
But, then again, the Starbucks is worth the visit. This location on Chambers and West Broadway is large, sunny and conveniently located over the red line. Luckily most of the business men and women are tucked away in their offices right now and the Starbucks is only lightly occupied. It’s most distinguishing feature is this small square seating room in the corner. It has faded mirrors on the walls, an old L-shaped bench occupying half of it, and large paneled windows that fill it with light.
Although there’s currently construction outside on the street, it doesn’t affect the ambiance of this delightful Starbucks.
The Location… Right on top of the 1/2/3 and in the beautiful neighborhood of TriBeCa.
The Size… A large main area and an additional (and adorable) seating area tucked into the corner.
The Crowd… Only light traffic, which is pretty good for being above a train.
Seating… There’s a good amount of seats but no comfy seats and few with back support.
The Restroom… Just the one.
Drink of Choice:
Grande Iced Coffee
