Classic Starbucks: consistent coffee, friendly staff, if you're a regular they know your order and have it ready! Only request: bring back the soft chairs!

I go to Starbucks for convenience and not quality. The coffee tastes like it has been burned and the iced tea has no flavor but the internet is very fast

If you stop in early morning or late afternoon the people at this Starbucks are very good. They answer all your questions and make sure what you have ordered is right. Whether is a simple "Tall Coffee" or a "Grande Latte" they make sure everything is ok.

Standard overpriced Starbucks establishment with yuppie clientele wanting 10 twisted things done to a coffee and making my wait for a plain black coffee extend out to 14 minutes even with no line. The cashier acted like he was offended that I wanted a large black coffee. Midmorning stop here with very few places to park.

So I've been here three times since moving into the area, I usually give an establishment three strikes before the route and this one really really really struck out.

I loved their Vanilla Bean. It's got such an awesome taste. I really enjoyed their professional, quick and easy service. Every time I went they would be so kind to my kids.

I have been stopping by this Starbucks a number of times because the staff is so nice very outgoing and always willing to answer any question. They are one of the best staff I have encountered doing business at Starbucks.

This is a nice, good-size Starbucks. So many of them around here are small, but this one has room to sit around and enjoy your coffee. Service was prompt and friendly, too. Also a big plus!

What can you write about Starbuck which is not known yet? I don't want talk about the tons of different type of coffee available, neither of the possibility to personalize your own coffee, neither about the great guys who work there and who are always ready to give their smile and their availability to the customers. I don't want to... More

Starbucks can be hit or miss with our favorite "mixed" drinks. Too many or not enough pumps of this or that, and the drink is no longer your favorite. This Starbucks got our drinks right both times. Wonderful!
