NYC Starbucks: 34th & Broadway (Macy’s 3rd Floor)

1 Dec

34th and Broadway Starbucks Macy's 3rd Floor

After visiting the Starbucks on the 6th and 5th floors of Macy’s, I’ve now made my way down to the 3rd floor Starbucks. This location differentiates itself from the others because it actually has seating. It’s not simply a Starbucks counter like the others. It is set up in the corner of the floor and is completely distinct from the surrounding Macy’s merchandise. It even has different floor tiling and a half wall dividing it from the 3rd floor women’s department.

There are a handful of tables-for-two, a sofa with power outlets, distinctive Starbucks decor and it even gets natural sunlight from the windows behind the barista bar. Unfortunately, it’s closer to the ground floor so it is also more traveled than the Macy’s Starbucks on the higher levels.

The Good:

The Location… On the 3rd floor of the world’s largest department store and close to the 1/2/3, N/Q/R and B/D/F/M trains.

The Convenience… Very convenient for the woman looking for a new look or the man being dragged along with her.

The Seating… Surprisingly a good amount of seating. There are several tables-for-two and even a short sofa with power outlets.

The Bad:

The Crowd… It’s only 11am and already this Macy’s Starbucks is highly populated. Tis the season.

The Restroom… Oh Macy’s has them. You just have to hunt for them.

Barista Friendliness:


Drink of Choice: 

Tall Pike.


Overall Starbucks Rating:

The Starbucks serving the 3rd floor of Macy’s Herald Square.
