Exactly what you'd expect

As usual, but a lovely location and decent wifi throughout. Avoid office arrival times and lunch hours!

This is by far the best Starbucks I have ever been too. I've been using daily since July when our offices moved to Sheldon Sq. Not a day passes when the staff do not smile and greet you warmly and genuinely. Also very organized, when there are twenty odd people in the queue they keep so calm and orderly... super... More

I always had breakfast at Starbucks during my short visit in London. I love the warm atmosphere there is in every Starbucks coffee and I like either sweet food/beverage or salt dish. <3 Everyone must experience it at least once in a life's time.

An average Starbucks in a useful location....just outside the back entrance of Paddington and away from the crowds by the canals of Little Venice. A breakfast muffin was very tasty and a vegetable and mozzarella panini had plenty of filling. However the waitress who delivered them was rather surly. Coffee came in enormous mugs, but unfortunately wasn't hot enough so... More

Given how busy railway stations can be, this is upstairs so seems to avoid the larger crowds for coffee. It means you can take a seat and watch out over the station away from it all if you want to. Coffee is good and service was quick.

I ordered a caramel frapachino.. I asked for skinny milk (which was available unlike most of London where "semi skimmed" is only available) the man still asked if I wanted cream: which I didn't . He said no worries. My drink was made quickly and it was delicious

This is a small place just adjacent to the hotel exit to the Train Station. It was very hot that week and while we needed a cold dring they had no ice for any drink type to we had nothing there at that very very hot afternoon.

It was sweltering and I needed to cool down. Not just a cold drink but a pleasantly cold cafe. The way they grind up the ice without it breaking down is so much better than Costa where we had been earlier in the day.

The frappacchino tastes the same as the USA locations. The pastries were different as they had British pies such as meat pies.

I love the generosity of Starbucks in regard to allowing people to sit and use their computers there. The staff are great, the coffee is good and the food a pleasant accompanient. The comfortable seating is always a draw, the other seating is fine and there is seating outside. The only negative is that the tables could be cleared more... More
