S is for Starbucks

Starbucks Coffee shop on Cliff Road is our "neighborhood coffee spot." They serve various coffee drinks, scones, muffins, and other treats! What more could one want? You can even use their drive thru!

Started in 1971 in Seattle, Starbucks now has 17,000 locations of which 4,500 are located in 47 countries.

  1. cela me rappelle mon premier voyage à NYC, c'était encore une petite chaine de café, mais c'était le seul endroit où on pouvait boire du bon café...depuis il y en a dans tous les coins de NYC.
    it reminds me of my first trip in NYC, it was another chaine baby of coffee, but it was the only place where they could drink some good coffee since there is in all corners of NYC.

  2. We in the USA have become addicted to good coffee...at last! Starbuck's stores all seem to look alike, don't they? By design but the shops can get pretty boring!

  3. I really don't think the coffee at Starbucks is that great. But I guess in comparison to the local doughnut shop or the gas station it's not too bad.

  6. Starbucks Coffee Shops gibt es auch in der Schweiz. Ich finde aber, die Preise sind viel zu hoch! Auf jeden Fall hier in der benachbarten Schweiz.

  7. Hate Starbucks coffee. But that's neither here nor there.

    The company is having lots of problems and closing numerous stores. They closed several here in Ocala!

    So, they came up with a new gimmick...they're opening "coffee houses" with different names (you won't find the name "Starbucks," anywhere) in an attempt to be trendy. The first one opened recently in Seattle...

    Silly, and I predict it will all end as another disaster engineered by corporate toadies who are totally out of touch with reality.

  8. No Starbucks here in Italy, but we like to go there when we're abroad.

  9. We do not have "Starbucks" in Norway, but I have been to a few when I have been abroad. They are all the same (of course). Most times I have had nice coffee and something nice to eat. I have never seen/heard about "drive thru" places like this.
    Is that common??

  10. I was about to say we don't have Starbucks here, but as we have so many different ones, I decided to google it, and yes, it opened last year in Lisbon.

  11. Hei Leif. This is Gunns husband (just borrowed Gunns account to write this).
    A drive through Starbucks... wow...my idea of heaven,
    I really like my coffee. There are a lot of good coffee houses here, but no Starbucks. I remember when we travelled to New York, the first thing after dumping our luggage at the hotel, was to go to the nearest Starbucks.
    Hmm... now I am envious... and a drive through one as well.... hmm.. Think of us the next time you take a coffee there.

    Hilsen fra Steve.

  12. Hey Safe Leif - Folgers is our favorite. Costs, oh, 5 cents a cup, too.

    No Allison, I'm grumpy all the time...that's why my grandkids call me "Grumpa"!

  14. I shudder to think of what Starbuck did in the coffee during those long, lonely voyages on the Pequod.

  15. Starbucks and Caribou are all over our metro. Caribou has a lot of foo-foo drinks; you know, drinks with minimal coffee if at all. While Starbucks is the strong coffee capital.

  16. Starbucks (with scones- surprisingly) have spread and some communities in Australia have made them very unwelcome and prefer the old home grown, warts and all, coffee shops. All the same, the art of coffee making has many variations and it becomes something of a lucky dip.
