The first store that opened I was there. I had tried Starbucks coffee before it became well known and had thought great. Too bad I didn't think about buying and expanding. So my hats off to the owner, what a fabulous idea. Starbucks to me the only franchise that Always serves a consistent and satisfying cup of coffee regardless of what location you go to. Staff and service does varies from place to place but it's friendly everywhere. Atmosphere is great for anyone to just sit down and read that's why it's opened up in almost every Barnes & Noble. Starbucks provide with wide variety of drink for every mood. I like strong coffee but never have got the burnt feeling or coffee grounds at the bottom of the cup. I know that it will never disappoint you.
Pros: consistent, variety, atmosphere
