This is a well loved Starbucks location! There is usually a line but it goes pretty fast! It is clean and they have great grab and go snacks ready to go! I had a drink made wrong and came back next day-- they made it over with no questions.

Great service, friendly people. Coffee inconsistent. Sometimes good, sometimes ok. Always busy though. Seems like they can always use more help at this location. Always a line or a back up in the drive thru.

The staff at this location really make exceptionally tasty drinks. I visit many different Starbucks locations and honestly some do not measure up as far as the flavor/taste... More

Starbuck recently changed their menu - the selection looks tasty - the tomato and cheese pastry I had was very delicious. Trish calls us by name when we are there - and she tasks the time to ask how we are doing, etc. She's a delight! Starbucks coffee is always delicious. I am sorry that they may discontinued the special... More

WHAT is the attraction to Starbucks? Ickkkk! If my car was leaking oil, and I put a white styrofoam cup under the engine and let the black oil fill the cup, than added cream, stirred... whah-LAH... it's Starbucks coffee. Most coffees have a richter scale of about 4 or 5. Starbuck's richter scale is about a thousand. I gag. If... More
