I've been to all of the Starbucks in the Nashville area, and there is a reason I and so many others go out of their way to get to this one. Even though the parking situation is horrendous, the staff at this Starbucks really sets it apart. Always so friendly and helpful. Knowledgeable too. This store has been around as long as any Starbucks in the area, so there is a large, very committed corps of 'regulars' who keep the atmosphere warm and inviting. Cordell has been there forever, and he and the rest of the baristas always make me feel great before, during and after I get my drink, which is always just right (or they'll gladly make it over for me). Beware of the rush hours here...it can get quite busy.
