The frappacchino tastes the same as the USA locations. The pastries were different as they had British pies such as meat pies.

“A regular haunt since I arrived in London and needed wifi!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

I love the generosity of Starbucks in regard to allowing people to sit and use their computers there. The staff are great, the coffee is good and the food a pleasant accompanient. The comfortable seating is always a draw, the other seating is fine and there is seating outside. The only negative is that the tables could be cleared more quickly. On the other hand, being served quickly and efficiently is more important.

“Unreasonable and uncooperative”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

We had coffee. A man and woman walk in. Ask for our help. We do that. The help is in form of a map which they as for directions to go to a particular place. They keep the map all across our table and when they leave, they take our iPhone without we realizing it. When we ask the staff to help, they refuse to show us the CCTV coverage of how exactly the thieves operated. Will never visit a starbucks again. Was very disappointed at the so called assistance provided.

“A bright and unusual free standing kiosk”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

I start all my Starbucks reviews like this – the food and drink is all the same - that’s why I go there! As such, I will only mention the quality of the food and drink if it is unusually good or bad. Generally, my review will focus on the atmosphere, location, layout and staff quality.
Unusually for a Starbucks, this store is a free standing kiosk at the unlauded location of the Paddington Waterside. The store is very open and bright, with full length glass windows allowing all the daylight into the store. Or, if you wish, there is plenty of outside seating. Staff were very efficient and friendly. But the definite highlight was the location – not far from the lovely waterway and in amongst a pretty trendy boardwalk. Cool place for a coffee.
