The coffee was what we expected from Starbucks....but the place could have been a little cleaner...table looked like had not been wiped down in a good long while not to mention the overflowing trash can. So take your coffee to go and find a nice bench outside and people watch!

Our Hotel provided breakfast vouchers to this Starbucks - we went on the morning of Sep 12. We were told there was no[regular] coffee - the machines were inoperative. We could only get Cafe Americana. They were also almost out of non-meat breakfast sandwiches but we were able to each get one. The Cafe Americana was weak and luke warm,... More

Starbucks coffee sets a good standard and I like it because I know what to expect. This location, however, adjacent to, and accessible from the Alex Johnson Hotel, was one of the largest and nicest I have seen anywhere. It was a real pleasure to take a break here.

We stop there all the time in between trips. Very normal Starbucks, good drinks, good staff, good places to sit and enjoy!

Food and drink were great; only complaint was that they don't sell a coffee mug for South Dakota. Starbucks fault, not this store's...

This is your standard starbucks, however, the location and the friendliness of the employees make this place. No lines and not busy. Relaxing!

Early morning staff is very nice - lots of character and fun. Service is quick and items are hot. Slight mistake was made on a breakfast order - it was handled quickly and with a nice apology.

Just stopped in for a late afternoon snack around 4pm. The shop was almost empty. Staff were very friendly and attentive and swerved me immediately. They were very polite. Just ordered a coffee and a chocolate croissant, but very happy with the service. The store was also very clean

Occasionally, I visit Starbucks and have a bad experience where the rush of the ordering causes the orders become backed up or mixed up. This was a very, very busy Starbucks shop, but my order was timely and just as asked for. The staff was very nice even under the pressure of guests.
