It's Just Coffee

It's just coffee. Always overpriced but I continue to return day in day out. Just grab a venti Pike and sit outside and people watch. When the weather is nice I can kill a good hour doing so.

You know that movie "There's Something About Mary"? Well that's how I feel about Starbucks. I shouldn't like it so much because generally I am turned off by chains.

I stopped by during my lunch hour to grab a nice cold cup of coffee. When we pulled into the parking lot, the signs said the parking was only available for the local shops.

The folks who work at Lincoln Ave. and Minnesota Ave. are the BEST! They pretty much KNOW me by my drink order: carmel macchiado! And, that is not such a bad thing. I keep coming back because they are friendly and get my beverage order correct EVERY time!
