Always crowded but with very fast service. Many items for sale that can only be bought here (coffees, mugs, totes, etc.) Good times!

Date of visit: February 2017

As the title says - this was the first Starbucks coffee shop ever, so that's a good excuse to visit it. Other than that it is a normal Starbucks, just more crowded because of it's status and because it's just opposite Pike Place Market with all it's tourists.

This is the very first starbucks ever built. Thelady does not have her mermaid tail and she has breasts. It is iconic. A must see, so many things have changed since this place was opened. Do you ever see a Starbucks with spices? It used to say just that. Coffee, Tea, and spices. The line was so long, I peeked in, checked it out quickly, and could not get inside. However many pics taken to compare this one to the newer ones.

Fun to go and say you've been. Other than that, nothing special....unless you enjoy waiting in super long lines. Then have at it!

We stopped in late in the evening for a cup of coffee. You can see why the first Starbucks location would be popular. Great location beside the public market. Decent coffee.
