Both days they were out of bold and Pikes Peak blends. The girl taking orders was unapologetic and did not offer the free cup option. They were understaffed and the staff there was unfriendly. Another Starbucks franchise in downtown Rapid City could put this one...More

I found both baristas who served me to be very accommodating and welcoming. Very good and prompt service though I do show before the line form. Outdoor seating is a nice option. Plenty of indoor choices too; relatively large Starbucks.

This Starbucks is located adjacent to the Alex Johnson Hotel. It was clean and roomy. They provide the good experience you would expect from Starbucks. Great to pick up breakfast items if you have a 4AM shuttle!

By far the nicest Starbucks I have been to. Staff was very pleasant as well. It's downtown and is attached to a hotel, very big space for lots of ppl to sit down and enjoy their coffee. Also has a downstairs.

The people at Starbucks in the Alex Johnson are super-friendly and fast. They are not a typical "corporate" Starbucks, so their system doesn't support buying your coffee and reloading your Starbucks card in one transaction. They also seem to run out of breakfast food items...More
