“still good, but losing some of it's charm”

Written on: 15/04/2013 by sprinkles606 (1 review written)

I have always liked starbucks but some things still niggle at me to this day. Good points: I have always found the customer service outstanding in every store from London to the midlands to the south west and round. The staff are warm and full of charm and enthusiasm. Always helpful and good banter all round. The coffee is not bad. The muffins are delicious. I am also slightly in love with the berry iced coffee, and the strawberry/chocolate cream drinks. They also offer unlimited free… Read Full Review

I don’t understand the hype and hoopla surrounding Starbucks. People are still going gaga over it. I think they are just okay. However, I appreciate their customer service. That was satisfactory!… Read Full Review

“Weak coffee, stale environment, waste of money”

Written on: 31/05/2011

Every time i try Starbucks i'm amazed at why so many people keep going there. With so many other good coffee shops available across London (chain cafes & independent) my last choice would be Starbucks. Their coffee is always so weak and overly milky (i'm a latte drinker); I never experience that rich taste and sharp smell that you should get from a good quality coffee. I also never seem to get the same caffeine buzz that I do from drinking other barista-made coffees. The environment of their… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2009 by sniper666 (10 reviews written)

So I am strolling along Princes St. with my fiance on a blissful Wintery evening in unarguably one of the most beautiful cities in Britain.
We decide that there would be nothing better to warm us up and enhance our relaxing evening then a beautiful hot drink made lovingly by the hands of one of Starbucks excellent baristas.

The outside appearance of the Edinburgh-Princes St. branch of Starbucks isn't particularly enticing, with it being based on the first floor and having only a small door… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/12/2009

I boycot Starbucks when shopping in Hitchin because it was (possibly still is) the coffee shop with the worst loos. Also, the tables and floor are usually littered and sticky.
<br/>
<br/>However, with a choice of 8 coffee shops and several restaurants in and around the market square, who needs Starbucks?

Written on: 31/07/2009 by Frosteee (69 reviews written)

I first became addicted to Starbucks on a cold wet drive to Whistler in Canada. I never drank tea or coffee until that point but a strong, hot, black mug of Cafe Estima really perked me up and I've relied on it to kick-start my mornings ever since.

My other Starbucks addiction used to be their lovely mozzarella and pesto panini. It was stuffed with gooey cheese, olives and sundried tomatoes. Then suddenly, about 7 months ago (I could probably name the exact date!) they changed the recipe… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2008 by gabbyco (1 review written)

I didn't enjoy my visit to Starbucks, and I had a stomach upset. I ended rowing with my companion, but we are now on speaking terms again, and he knows not to take me to Starbucks again.

I can honestly say the taste was vile, the cake was fattening, and not only that, it was double what I paid at Costa Coffee.

Maybe it should be renamed cafe obese, as I felt like it having visited there - we both went for a long walk afterwards because we felt so bloated - not again... Even if I am… Read Full Review

In fairness to Starbucks, the store in Canterbury that my complaint concerns is the latest one that opened in December in the former Sports Store location opposite Marks and Spencer and next to Warehouse

How is it Starbucks' fault if you eat too much cake and then feel sick? Confusing.

Written on: 12/02/2006 by UK12345 (26 reviews written)

I go to Starbucks often, but my favorite was one in Downtown Liverpool. It had a large restraunt area with sofa's and big chairs. You could get a drink and get free refills on it. I have never seen that at a Starbucks before, I couldn't imagine they would do that. The staff who were pretty young were very respectful of me and I enjoyed that… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2006 by eb (10 reviews written)

I have been to Starbucks all over the world, I love their coffee. I find their sandwiches very expensive, but once again they taste fantastic. I do find that if you pay by card they have to be one of the only shops with the slowest card machines in the world, and I wish that they brought into operation the Starbucks top-up cards like they do in America/Canada. They could do with investing in some new furniture in some of the busy Starbucks on the outskirts of London or buy quality furniture… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/01/2006 by Terri Wineman (1 review written)

I was visiting the Hyatt Grand Champions Spa and Resort this past week, I was very disappointed with the Starbucks located in the Resort. Other than coffee, they did not make any drinks. I love the Mocha Frappichino. I can't beleive that in such a elite location, that they did not make any drinks, only bottled drinks and a cup of coffee. What a disappointment… Read Full Review
