Great Location

The La Jolla Starbucks on Prospect Street is at a great location. Parking can be a but tricky, but cruise up and down the side streets. Most have a two hour time limit, and they do mark yours tires and enforce the time.

Why review a Starbucks, they say? Well, they are not all created equal. We have been in good and bad, dirty and clean, friendly and not, Starbucks' all over the world , and this one is a treat! We needed a coffee fix after a long walk on LaJolla's beautiful cliffs, and we were not disappointed. A very friendly Barista... More

What is there to say about Starbucks? - The only reason that I am doing this review is to say that - "it's a Starbucks" and so why even bother having them on Trip Advisor?

This one is a bit smaller but you can sit outside and people watch. You will also most likely see Ferraris, bentleys and more. They also have a bathroom!

What can I say...its a Starbucks! But they are dependable, service is generally pretty good, and the coffee is always good! It's nice to be able to get my usual latte with an extra shot when on the road!

It's always nice to have a Starbucks store close by. There is one a few doors from the LaJolla Inn. This store opens early and closes around 8 or 9.

Seating wasn't all that great and the staff was not the usual "Starbucks friendly", the tea we ordered was wrong (they forgot the sweetener), and it was so-so. Bathrooms were dirty too. Yuck.
