The first brick-and-mortar Starbucks store is opening in Long Island City, coming to the Court Square district.
The store will open at 26-14 Jackson Avenue later this year, Starbucks confirmed, in the same building where Chipotle is located. The news was first reported by the Court Square blog.
“We’re proud to be joining the Long Island City neighborhood later this year and look forward to acting as a gathering place for residents and visitors of the community,” a Starbucks spokeswoman said.
Gross. If we are going to chain-ify the area, at least pick the ones with good coffee!!!
Enjoy your burnt coffee, caloric coffee milkshakes and gimmicky unicorn artificial crap.
I’ll be at Communitea.
Their standard brew is kind of nasty. Surprised it’s so popular. I tend to avoid SBs but when I do I ask for a single brew blond. You have to wait but it’s drinkable.
Ooh good to know. When I’m in a pinch and have to go, that’s what I’ll do! Thanks!
Your quite welcome.
I couldn’t agree more. Starbucks is pure over roasted garbage. If you ever get a latte or cappuicino they just dump the steamed milk and foam right into the cup. There’s no pour.
It’s crap. The nitro cold brew is interesting, but that’s about it
Starbucks is a necessary evil these days and so is Whole Foods. Come on Whole Foods! Hurry up!
Birch on 23rd is
I’m just sayin…

Multiple Dunkin Donuts, Sweetleafs, Coffeed, Toby’s Estate, and you need a Starbucks? I mean, it will eventually happen but probably up at Court Square first I’d guess.”
Wow amazing call predicting Starbucks would open near dense population. How do you do it?
Especially considering they’ve had a makeshift Starbucks in the Citi Corp building for years
Here goes the neighbourhood. If only the MTA service was increasing at the same rate rents are increasing
can’t get a decent bodega coffee in this pseudo-hippie town…LIC is Greenpoints ugly twin sister.
10 years ago, Greenpoint was Williamsburg’s ugly twin sister.
…and, they are not hippies. Hippies are from the 60’s. You are referring to hipsters. Totally different.
Toby’s Estate > Starbucks.
Excellent! Let’s get those franchises in. Once they arrive, LIC will FINALLY start putting up better dining options than those “fresh salad and sandwich” shops and eliminate those brunch places that opens at 1 pm one day and than 10 am the other.
