I love catching up on my work between meetings. They have an amazing apple pie/tart doughnut/danish which I have never had anywhere else!

Great place for a business meeting. Staff are very friendly and the coffee was very good. Seating arrangements are very comfortable, and perfectly arranged for having conversations without too much interruption from other customers.

If you know anything about coffee, you will steer clear of this place. Plus it's usually full of loud and rowdy teens. Not a place to relax and have a proper conversation.

Starbucks speaks by itself. Nice an creamy coffees, great cakes and snacks. Today I had my traditional matcha green tea with soya milk. I sat for 30 minutes, waiting for the bus. Lovely time

My mum and I went into this shop for a coffee, it cost about 18 Swiss Francs, even the guy behind the counter said it was expensive.

I never been in a Starbucks so I decide to have the experience with my family. Never again. 20€ for 2 awful cappuccino served in a paper cap. If this is the quality all over the world .... Come to a ordinary bar in Italy and learn the lesson ....

I love all starbucks, however I am not very happy with the one in Rive, staff at the counter are not friendly but showing a face of not care and tired, not even smile, I ordered the caramel frappaccino, I hardly found the coffee taste inside, it is almost like zero, the ice and milk take more of the taste,...

Friendly staff and good drinks, I will come back again. The view is nice, the place is cosy and warm but the place is quiet small.

Starbucks seems to divide opinion rather dramatically. In general I like them, especially the fact that you always know exactly what is on offer wherever you are in the world..... ... except here. They can't make the coffees properly, it's always looking untidy and uncleaned. They can get it right in Zurich, why not here?
