Bayside residents can now get their coffee fix at a newly opened Starbucks coffee shop.
The Seattle-based chain opened on Friday, Dec. 14 in the Bay Terrace shopping center at 23-98 Bell Blvd., according to a spokesperson for the Cord Meyer Development Company.
Back in August, Cord Meyer told QNS that a Starbucks would be coming to the open-air mall by 2019. News that the shop had opened today was seen on the Bay Terrace Community Alliance Facebook page, which was confirmed by Cord Meyer as well as the shopping center’s safety office.
Prior to the new Starbucks’ opening, the two nearest locations were 215-29 Northern Blvd. in Bayside and 221-04 Horace Harding Expy. in Oakland Gardens.
The coffee shop is located between the shopping center’s First National Bank of Long Island and a Lane Bryant clothing store. Store hours are from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
