“Coffee in a pleasant setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is coffee in a pleasant setting. I like a slice of the cinnamon coffee cake with my cappuccino. Croissants are heated in a convection oven, not in a microwave. This keeps them crisp and hot, and not steamed like the microwaves make things. Baked goodies come in fresh every morning. Unsold ones go to the local homeless shelter in the evening. The Lakeforest Starbuck is located in the exact middle of the ground level of the Mall. Lots of potted palm decorate its table area. Above the Starbuck stand there is a lofty three story high glass ceiling which lets in sunlight and sometimes a few of the neighborhood birds. Kids love to watch the miniature sized toy train carrying passengers around the second floor balcony. The managers keep this one running most effectively, and it is fun to be here.
