Didn't notice that the Starbucks coffee was that much more expensive, but the pastries were insanely expensive. Pretty much the resort prices that you would expect. Would definitely agree with others that the short walk up the road to Cafe 1134 is totally worth it.

Instead of paying $4 for a Starbucks latte you pay $7.
Just because its in the Hotel. Pass on it and get way better coffee and service down the street at Cafe 1134 on Orange. Or if you insist on drinking Charbucks walk a few blocks down lovely Orange street and get the regular prices.

Expensive, but worth a one time visit. If youre looking to just check out the Hotel del Coronado, then this is the place to relax for a bit while your there. The view is great, and make sure to get your parking ticket validated, if your not staying in the hotel.

The views of the sunset are wonderful. Our server outside was very attentive and the food was pretty good.

Nice servers, food tasted good. Average portions, waaay too expensive. The barstools are ergonomically disastrous for folks under 5'7"; my feet swung like a kindergartener in time out. Warning: The tequila is watered down so don't blow $32 for 4 shots!
