“Nothing star about it”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I don't like any Starbucks. The food is all so bland and prepackaged. It is just like airport food. The coffee is terrible and the tea is so hot, you only burn your tongue, hence cannot enjoy the tea bag they provide in the 2 litres of water. There is so much more to choose from nowadays.

“i like coffee shops like Starbucks”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I always have a pleasant experience at coffee shops like Starbucks. It is not just a hot drink and a meal you have here but a lifestyle experience. This is part of their brand image like McDonalds and it works.
You can get just a coffee anywhere.

“ITS JUST ABYSMAL”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Typical poorly made coffee that tastes like burnt wood chippings, prepared by people who just don't give a damn and served by indolent staff who just couldn't be bothered keeping the place clean.

Our standard late night coffee on the coast. Decent coffees and friendly staff make it an easy and nice experience.
