Just another one

Nothing special about this one. It's just another Starbucks but I do hate this one because the internet connectivity is awful in this one. Please fix it!

A decent Strabucks in terms of location and seating capacity but beset with the woes of most Starbucks. You ain't getting a seat here unless it's the school holidays. Ok, I exagerrate. The recent renovation looks good and there is a large outside seating area that gets you a pretty good chance of being seated, but you'd still have to... More

I consider myself a loyal customer of Starbucks, and will always be. I love it that they have brought the coffee culture up to a new level. I only have one suggestion. To sharpen its service standards, knowing the customer's name is very important in today's service culture. Often, the service staff would ask for the customer's name to identify... More

Starbucks is everywhere and I used to like the coffee alot... but recently I find that the coffee seems to vary from place to place... The recent one I went to, the coffee lacks character and does not stand out as Starbucks coffee. In fact I am going back to the good old coffee shop coffee... Not sure why but... More

Its not the first time I’ve walked away from a Starbucks cafe on a weekend... Returned after an hour and it's the same customers occupying the tables. Some were just catching a few zzz...! Others had set up a study desk with a few colleagues! Why can’t Starbucks coax these customers out after an hour during peak hours?

... and that is all you need to know really. Watery expensive coffee, soggy reheated food and dozens of loitering students who remain long after their coffee is gone.

I start all my Starbucks reviews like this – the food and drink is all the same - that’s why I go there! As such, I will only mention the quality of the food and drink if it is unusually good or bad. Generally, my review will focus on the atmosphere, location, layout and staff quality. This little store is... More
