Genius idea, the place will be packed between dads getting their early morning coffee, Bais Rivka girls looking for a nice place to study (and get coffee!), and yuppies…And don’t forget those nine year olds looking for wifi…

I used to drink coffee there with soy milk till some one told me that only drinks soy milk informed me that most soy mills are dairy. I didn’t believe him i started to ask to see the bottle everytime and found out that somtimes Starbucks don’t always use a pareve soy milk. so even if they have a seprate machine for soy latte the machine might still be dairy which most places don’t have .

ha!

Do we need another hangout? B”H it is not in the heart of crown heights but will still be a place of pritzus. Questionable kashrut etc. you vey. Would Williamsburg allow this? How far have we fallen that we are excited about this!

The genious idea is of COLlive to post this, generating tons of comments, and views expecting comments. This is pretty much as out of crown heights as the other ones are and doesn’t really have a bearing affect in our community.
Everyone relax.

WHICH IS THE BEST OF THE BAD LOT?

WHICH IS THE BEST OF THE BAD LOT?

Curious to know what people think about this one: Lot 1: Presently, CH has a problem with crime and other activities, not in anyone’s best interest. But, for some reason, BH, there is virtually none or very miniscule assimilation (like, who would…?). Lot 2: WIth many more professionals(what do we call them -“happy yuppy yippies?”) flocking here, crime will go down, the area will get expensive, but will be glittering! There was a Yeshiva in a very warm, beachy part of the country, where some smart alecky bachurim could not resist saying,”Oh, the kippa, .. so sweet.” In Williamsburgh (now… Read more »

EVERYONE under the age of 50 will be ‘hanging’ there…

re soy milk..the whole idea of soy is that it is NOT dairy..it it has an ouD it is because it’s made on milchig equpment…

Starbucks uses the same hot dish washer to wash oven grills & grates which are dripping in bacon and cheese to wash all of the mixing utensils (at the same time) — major problem. besides black coffee be warned!!

i think the real problem is now there is a bigger nisayon for kashrus. i don’t think hanging out with friends is really bad it could be used for the good or used for bad- but the biggest problem is this question about kashrus- why dont we have good coffee shops @ that side of ch? we could really all d it we will all strive to be the best we could be hatzlacha!

I guess the only benefit will be that it’s a close location to go on mivtzoyim.

Stop the DRAMA!
Guest
Stop the DRAMA!

Omg can everyone calm down?
What “pritzus”?
It’s a coffee shop. Not a club.
Honestly, you’re kidding yourselves if you think coffee will make “hanging out” more prevalent.
The people who would be hanging out are gonna hangout even without Starbucks…

This is located in Crown Heights.

Some of these comments reek of paranoia.

Who needs it?
Guest
Who needs it?

I find it amusing that some of the very same people who complain about the cost of kosher meat, tuition, summer expenses, legitimate bombardments from tzedakah organizations etc. have no qualms about running for an obscenely expensive cup of Starbucks coffee. How much is a status symbol worth, and who really needs it anyway? P.S. I doubt that Starbucks was suddenly starstruck with our community; more likely they figured the Yuppies that are making their way into Bed- Stuy as well as those already residing in Park slope would be good fodder for this kind of inanity.
