One of the best things about this Starbucks is its handy location. It is close to so many places you might need to shop at, and so easy to zip in and get your favorite beverage! They offer all your favorites!

Waited 25 minutes for my latte. Insane. Was told that management cut back on employees hours. Wy in the early morning? Makes no business sense.

Being a travel nurse I have been to so many Starbucks I couldn't even begin to count them anymore. This one is the best by far that I have ever been to! The drinks are served perfect every time and with a smile. To me that makes all the difference in the world!!:)

The tea and coffee are very good here. I would also recommend the hot chocolate. It is very clean and everything is made from high quality ingredients.

Starbucks is always the same. It's always good. The pastries aren't that great but just get the coffee or tea or something. It's really clean.

The title says it all. Starbucks Coffee is excellent, very flavorful, strong as one wants it, and many different styles offered; BUT the prices are ridiculously high!

The renovation looks fantastic. Always hot and fresh! It is much easier to drive around the building now.
