Worth Ave. Starbucks now opens at 7 a.m.
Early-risers officially have a spot to get their caffeine fix on the island.
Starbucks, in The Esplanade at 100 Worth Ave., recently made the switch to a 7 a.m. opening time from 8 a.m. after getting Town Council approval in June.
The popular chain coffee shop initially asked for 6 a.m., but the council settled on 7 after considering the neighbors at the Winthrop House. The idea behind 7 a.m. is that it would allow parents to pick up the coffee before dropping children off at school.
The store’s hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
