“For-all service.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Starbucks is Starbucks, right? The thing with Starbucks is that you know what to expect. Location does not impact taste of coffee. What I found endearing though was their personal touch. The baristas can speak in English, Tagalog, Ilonggo, Cebuano, Chinese, Korean and Russian. They are always all smiles and courteous. Makes your usual coffee experience more fun.

“Good coffee”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The shop had good coffee and a great location to enjoy from the roof. Would be a great place to have a drink and watch the sunset.

“Why???”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Boaracay is like every touristic island where money becomes a priority... Franchises start to be all over the island and are unfortunately favored by both local and international tourists.

If you want something authentic, pass Starbucks keep walking towards station 1, 5 minutes walk later you will see a billboard showing you the way to Real Coffee. Coffee is excellent and it is a hidden Boracay gem.

“Great Coffee Even on this Small Island”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Starbucks delivers great coffee, good service, and clean bathrooms (with soap in the dispenser).

Had my favorite latte and it was just like home. Sometimes, even on a beautiful tropical Island, you need a little taste of home.

“Good coffee, good service, good views”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Starbucks is basically just another coffee chain, but their rooftop view on Station 1 of White Beach in Boracay is excellent and their coffee and service is their usual decent standard. Not as good as Cafe del Sol, but recommended nonetheless.
