If you've been in one Starbucks, you've pretty much been in them all. Good coffee, but overprice and a bit pretentious. Same for the baked goods. However, they do have lots of comfortable seating and tables, so you can order a coffee with a couple friends and have a quiet place to hang out, relax and enjoy one another's company. I definitely love their holiday specials--especially the pumpkin latte. Think of this as a special treat, not necessarily the coffee to go on the way to work each morning.
