A bunch of corporate flakes – The staff here are flakes, and the manager is a Nazi. Literally. Instead of listening to your problem, she likes to intimidate you and show you who's the boss. The staff joke snidely about their customers behind their backs after they pay, they don't respect requests to turn down the obnoxious, screeching, shrill loud music they play over powerful loudspeakers, and they inconvenience customers by starting to clean up an hour before the store is closes. It's more important to the staff to clean and be able to quit early than let you enjoy the last hour there in peace. They expect you to fawn over them, be obsequious to them, and cater to their egos, instead of trying to serve you and make you happy. Almost all of them have chips on their shoulders. These are all major losers, they hate the fact that they have loser jobs, and it shows. Starbucks HQ has been informed of all this and does nothing about it. Typical corporate behavior. As long as tourists and occasional visitors make them loads of money, they don't care about regulars. Other locations have been better for me, but this one is the pits when it comes to consideration of the customer. Too bad because it's a convenient location.
Seattle-based coffee chain lures caffeine addicts with upscale roasts, caramel frappuccinos, shaken iced teas and an extra shot of trendiness. – In Short
For many, getting their daily jolt of java has become a daily morning ritual, and the cardboard cup with its infamous green label is the close companion of every coffee aficionado. Busy baristas work seamlessly behind the bar, juggling orders for their strongly-brewed drips and signature hot and cool beverages. While providing a wide selection of coffee specialties, pastries and various coffee related goods, patrons are invited to settle down in comfy armchairs and enjoy their favorite brews amid the chatter of the laidback yet caffeinated crowd.
