I wish I could say more positive things about the Starbucks on 57th & Lexington. My mother always said if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all.
So I guess I will start with the positive. This Starbucks is in a great location. Lexington avenue in this odd mixture of Midtown and the Upper East Side is filled with retail possibilities, good restaurants, and public transportation.
And that’s all the good I have.
Honestly, this is just one of those Get In, Get Out locations. It’s triangular in shape and reminds me of my first NYC apartment that was nothing but this odd hybrid between a kitchen, living room and bedroom doors. There are only 7 stools up against one windowed wall. There’s no bathroom and nothing notable about the decor.
Sometimes a Starbucks is just a Starbucks.
The Location… In the thick of a shopping area and close to the N/Q/R and 4/5/6.
The Seating… 7 high bar stools facing one window and that’s it.
The Size… Tiny, tiny, tiny.
Drink of Choice:
Grande Iced Coffee… I know, I’ve been boring lately.
Overall Starbucks Rating:
Lines so long you’d think you were at Disney Land.
