For the 1st time, I went to “Ateaz” & I like it. It is a refreshing alternative to the Corporative World of Starbucks & one may drink a cup of Tea with a Real & not Paper Cup. It is that little touch of home that is attractive.
In August, a Film Festival will take place there.
By comparison to Starbucks, it is Local Oriented. Ateaz was founded in 2010 here in NYC. It has a bit of a Bohemian Feel to it.
One modern concession is that Wi Fi is available. This store is actually in Kew Gardens. Starbucks Kew Gardens is actually in Forest Hills, sort of like the NY Jets & NY Giants, who are actually across the Hudson River in New Jersey.
It is a local crowd, and that is fine with me.
