Well, it looks like former President Barack Obama is done kitesurfing with Richard Branson in the Caribbean and is back in the States. And New Yorkers were super-hyped to see him today.

The ex-POTUS was spotted on 5th Avenue today grabbing a coffee at Starbucks. After getting his cup of java, Obama casually walked out — surrounded by Secret Service agents, of course — and headed to his vehicle. Meanwhile, dozens, if not hundreds, of gawkers went wild, cheering their throats hoarse as the 44th President of the United States waved at them.

It was not immediately clear why Obama made the stop at 5th Avenue, outside of needing a caffeine fix. But by the reactions from the Manhattanites who gathered, they were just happy to catch a glimpse of the former Commander-in-Chief.
