Ah, the mothership. This is where the magic began, the first Starbucks store ever. Because of rules in this tourist center of town, the flagship store retains its original look and continues to be a hub. 


  • You're visiting one of only two stores in the world that have Pike Place Special Reserve available for purchase. This dark roast reserve coffee pairs well with Seattle rain and chocolate.
  • This is where it all began! Get a cup of coffee and wander around the market across the street.
  • They have a blend only available @ the Pike's Place location.
  • Admire the coffee bean pig above the doorway.
  • Add a "Cubano" shot to your drink! It's a handcrafted shot made with espresso and raw sugar. Only available at the Original Starbucks.
  • Take a coffee here in the first Starbucks of all.
  • Best coffee in town
  • The coffee tastes exactly the same as every other one...the line is just longer. Trust me on this one...
  • You're at the original Starbucks location!
  • Be kind to the baristas and TIP. They are the hardest working and busiest baristas in the WORLD. No joke.
  • This is the original Starbucks and remains like it was back in the day. The original logo is still in tact. Yes, it is a Starbucks but this is the original!
  • Born in 1971~just like me!
  • Be prepared for tourists photographing themselves inside; smile in case of wide camera angles.
  • Check-in to the ORIGINAL Starbucks Coffee Place!!
  • First Starbucks ever!!!!
  • Slowest baristas ever!! Ate they trying to keep tourists here longer so they buy more swag????
  • Starbucks remains at the top of the industry at being eco conscious, having suppliers protect water sources, uses recycled paper products and organic and shade-grown coffee.
  • A trip to Seattle is not complete without a stop at Starbucks store #1. This store definitely marches to it's own beat. Many things are unique to this store and it's definitely worth checking out.
  • You can log on to AT&T Wi-Fi at this Starbucks. Its free, and they also offer great local content on their Starbucks Digital Network
  • Busiest baristas, but also very friendly. Don't forget to TIP! :)
