As vacationers this Starbucks was an easy to find location. Service was good. Coffee good. Our favorite Starbucks in South Lake Tahoe.

Although there were four employees behind the counter, the line for service was stagnant. I have never been to a Starbucks that was this disorganized. A disgrace to the brand!

This is a good Starbucks. Friendly Partners work here and they work to get you in and out in a very courteous fashion.

Enjoyed the evening coffee after a tired some trip. This is located at center of the place where many hotels are just a 5 mint walk away.

I've traveled extensively the Asian area, visiting many Starbucks along my way. I always like coming back home, to this Starbucks that I've been going to since they've opened.

As expected always good to the last drop. Friendly, efficient service. Clean, tidy environment. Right along the main drag in South Tahoe, easy access.

Bought a coffee and drank it on the patio. There was a guitarist playing outside that was great and I wanted to tip him. I went back inside Starbucks to ask for change with my cup in hand. They refused to break my $10. The manager was a jerk about it.

Nothing special here, just a typical Starbucks. Service really goes down on weekends when they get busy. As many times as I've visited this location, I can't say that I've ever seen adequate staff to cover the business. Once in a while during the week being the exception. Not as neat and clean as the usual locations. Atmosphere is dark... More

I love coming in here when its not busy and I don't have to wait in line for an hour. However, even when I do, staff always know my drink and food. I have three drinks I rotate around and they always remember them. Super nice people, even when its busy and super crazy in there. Now if the Starbucks... More
