Where I Get Coffee While Shopping On 34th Street

Brrr! Those Herald Square bellringers could use some coffee.

I could do a post on Where I Eat While Shopping On 34th Street but we're all fashion people so we're not allowed to eat. Or, at the very least, we certainly don't post about it. Instead today is inspired by this tweet from a few weeks ago, and my craving for a really big mocha right now.

misschelseamae: HOW IS THERE NOT A SBUX IN HERALD SQUARE? #mochaordeath

I'm really old so it took me a few minutes to translate SBUX. But Miss Chelsea Mae asks a very loud and good question. At first glance there are no SBUX to be found at Herald Square, but really there are four. Where? Inside Macy's Herald Square! You'll find Starbucks on floors 1.5, 3, 5, and 6. The Starbucks on the fifth and sixth floor do not have seating, though. The one on 1.5 is always packed, but sometimes it's worth scrounging for a seat because it overlooks the first floor, which makes for good people watching. My Macy's SBUX of choice is on the 3rd floor, as it's not as crowded and there's usually no line to order.

Herald Square 'wichcraft kiosk, find it on the northern tip along 35th Street. Follow 'wichcraft on Twitter.

Greeley Square has a 'wichcraft kiosk, too, down south along 32nd.

However, I get most of my java in Herald Square at 'wichcraft. I'm totally addicted to their coffee. It's so good that I rarely order lattes or mochas, but those, too, are delicious. And they have a happy hour every day from 3-6pm, when us coffee lovers get half-off. Also, 'wichcraft has new sandwiches. I'm so excited! My old standby is the peanut butter cookie sandwich, and I'm so not joking.

Updated to add: Jen's comment reminded me that I forgot to add a link to our many Starbuck's located throughout the 34th Street district.Click here for listing

There are also Starbucks at 34th & 5th (entrance on 34th St., inside the ESB), 33rd & 5th, 35th & 5th, and 36th & Madison.

And those are only the ones that I know of...

I don't think that area is hurting for any more Starbucks!

Jen - thanks for the reminder, I forgot to put a link to our directory that shows the trillion starbucks in the area, am updating now.

funny though, when people don't see one right at Herald Square there is panic!
