Foursquare Tips

  • Grab a seat by the window for people watching or a corner seat for studying
  • If you're on the Green or Gold level with the rewards card and you're planning to read or get work done in the store, get no bigger than a tall brewed coffee or tea and enjoy the free refills.
  • Amazing customer service even when they are busy they are very nice!
  • There's always a huge line, one person working the register and another making drinks. My drinks always end up being half-assed and I have to wait forever.
  • No one told me to bring a blanket. Store windows are actually frosted bc the indoor ac is on full blast. Why!?
  • Baristas are too sassy for my liking
  • This is the slowest Starbucks in town, be prepared for the wait...
  • Bathroom is clean!! It's never hard to find a seat here!!
  • This is one of the slowest Starbucks in the city. The staff need retaining, the female barista needs to step it up. The line is always ridiculous in the morning. #epicfail
  • Love it. Plus the wifi is fast.
  • This Starbucks kind of sucks. The Baristas are really rude and the service is slow. One of them actually got mad at a customer because she made their drink wrong
  • This location was renovated and reopened Aug 15th, 2011. Not all that large as half the place seems reserved for morning lines, but clean nonetheless and free at&t Internet.
  • Ample seating at this Starbucks
  • Good coffee clean store
  • Capuccino with vanilla
  • Busy in the early mornings with hospital employees
  • Extremely slow staff. Took me 25 minutes or more to get my orders for two weeks straight. All I order was an iced americano
  • Skinny late
  • Hot chocolate never fails
