Before I quit drinking coffee (it was an addiction) I would frequent this spot only when with a group of people who wanted to go there because going there by myself would make me feel guilty I am spending so much money on a cup of coffee. Now that I am not a coffee drinker I don't waste my time there unless:    a) Someone gives me a Starbucks gift card   b) I have arranged to meet someone there because it is a convenient location      Now I tend to think …

Before moving to Los Angeles in 1991, I had never heard of the renowned Starbucks Coffee or anything so foolish as paying over three dollars for a cup of java.  As a Midwesterner, I enjoyed independent coffee houses and recall my grandmother serving up Folgers at home when it was just about two bucks for the entire container.  But I was living in the entertainment capital of the world of the world, loving every minute of my newfound lifestyle and Vanilla lattes.      …

Yeah, they're corporate, but I'm a sucker for their vanilla lattes ;)

If you have a Starbucks addiction, like me, or even if you only stop by a couple of times a month, make the investment in a Starbucks card. Register it online, for free, and after only 5 drinks, the rewards start to build up. Free soy milk, free flavor shots. Using my registered card makes the price of my drink (Tall, Cinnamon Dolche Latte) drop from $3.76 to $3! Plus, you get a postcard from a free drink of your choice after 15 visits and for your birthday!!

I love Starbucks, but I can't help but think of the calories whenever I drink a speciality drink from there!

At Starbucks the service is usually quick. My order during the winter is always a chai latte with skim milk.

I know they're corporate... but they're so tasty! :D I still try to go to mom 'n pop places though.

Sometimes its all you have, and I have to say, my skinny cinnamon latte today was not bad...not GOOD, but not too bad.

Starbucks Shaken Black Tea/Lemonade
I grew up in New York City and always used to love being able to leave the house and go to any deli and get great tasting Lemon Ice Tea.  I live in Philly now and as much as I love Philly, you can't get that king of ice tea anywhere!  They are all into the sweet tea thing.  So when my dad first told me about the Starbucks black tea/lemonade, I had to try it.    Before I started getting the Black tea/lemonade, I used to get the TAZO passion fruit tea.  I would …

Hmm, I'm thinking a Caramel Macchiato with heavy, heavy caramel sauce & lots of that whipped cream. Now that's sweet & dreamy!!

Best instant coffee. Doesn't taste instant, but you can still kinda tell. It is very smooth and has a pleasant taste.

Pricey, but consistent deliciousness wherever I go. When I'm in a foreign country for an extended stay, it makes me feel like I'm at home.

Starbucks Coffee- NOT recommended at this time. There's just something about salt in a drink that leaves a bad taste in my mouth!

I give your full permission to judge me, I am a Starbucks die hard fan! I think I've been to Dunkin Donuts once this year. Starbucks coffee is delicious. You always get the same thing and it's never too sweet. The have a sophisticated flare from the cups to the decor. I fell intellectual when I am sipping on my Caramel Macchiato flipping through the latest issue of Vanity Fair. What makes Starbucks unique is its attention to detail. The little sayings on the cup, personalizing the cup of coffee …

I think I am just not down with the fact that Sbucks isn't what it used to be.  I used to feel special when I walked in.  There was always a good chance that someone would give me good service and that the product was going to be at least above average.    This is no longer the case.  Starbucks is too close to McDonalds.  There is a drive thru and the workers aren't coffee savvy.  The personality has been lost.  The venti drip I am drinking is watered …

I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I do know that Starbucks coffee is totally overpriced.      My main reason to offer up a review is based on the fact that I worked for them many moons ago (not as a barista; I worked for one of their architects) and man, they were one of the most difficult clients to work for.  They were always trying to lowball us for our professional services, were extremely needy and impatient and always wanted things "done yesterday".    Now …

I use to be a huge fan of Starbucks, but I think that was when I worked at the mall and knew the people who worked at the famous coffee chain who could get me free coffee!!    The coffee here is too "milked down" if that makes sense.. I feel like I'm just drinking flavoured milk.  The one item I do prefer here is the Soya Lattes.     I do have to say I don't enjoy that they are EVERYWHERE (especially in large cities where there's 2 on a block) and so …

Pros: Delicious beverages, pastries, and sandwiches; attentive service; ambiance.     Cons: One dreadful incident involving service; decreaed friendliness over the months.     The Bottom Line: The bottom line is no longer straight and proper; it squiggles about the page after ingesting an unwanted dose of caffeine, but at least it enjoyed its peppermint mocha.     The Remedy for Flash Movies!         …

Pros: Good coffee, decent service     Cons: Lines are long sometimes, kind of pricey     I LOVE coffee. I'd probably pay a lot for BAD coffee if it was the only game in town. The first time I went to Starbucks was in New York City. I was not impressed. The coffee was fine, nothing fancy. I also got a crumb cake that was so hard when I bit into it I broke a crown. I took it back up to the counter to tell them that their pastry was dangerous and they were exceedingly …
