After visiting Macy’s 6th floor Starbucks, I simply had to take one escalator down to the 5th floor woman’s department to find the next one. And I have to admit, these two Starbucks are strikingly similar. They are the same exact size. Neither offers seating. And they are both located up against a wall that separates one department from another. The only perceivable difference is that this 5th floor Starbucks is surrounded by woman’s clothing and not bedding.
I simply ordered my double shot of espresso, took in the scene and continued on my way. There are grander Starbucks inside this Macy’s to visit. I know that for a fact.
The Location… Inside the world’s largest department store and close to the 1/2/3, N/Q/R and B/D/F/M trains. What more could you want?
The Convenience… Very convenient for the woman looking for a new look or the man being dragged along with her.
The Size… Very small. Not a coffee stand, but not a full-sized Starbucks either.
The Seating… None.
The Restroom… Oh Macy’s has them. You just have to hunt for them.
Drink of Choice:
A double shot of espresso… I have a feeling I’m going to be highly caffeinated this morning.
Overall Starbucks Rating:
The Starbucks serving the 5th floor of Macy’s Herald Square.
