Pleasantly enlarged coffee shop. Has all the usual Starbuck's items on the menu. Next door to the popular Seaside Market, with whom they share a large outdoor patio for take-out dining.

Standard issue Starbucks. Staff were very friendly and the coffee was good. A plethora of outdoor seating was available.

Nice location... For such a nice location and wonderful atmosphere you would think the staff would be a more up beat and not grumpy!!!!! Always love their croissants. Guess I will go up the street to Zumbar for friendly people!

This Starbucks has the Clover system, which means you can get a better cup of coffee. The seating area is often full with locals browsing online or working together on projects.

Coffee and food are predictably good. Parking is horrible. The location means that traffic is backed up making it difficult to get in and out of the parking lot and also to park.

In Temecula, the manager forgot to give me my cup discount. For this she offered me a coupon for a free coffee. Impressive.

This is a great little starbucks right next to Seaside Market. It's a nice place to stop before or after walking down to the beach, and good for a sit down and chat while the kids run around in a little patio area.

Cardiff Starbucks is a little taste of heaven. Get your favorite drink (Peppermint Mocha Frappaccino for yours truly), take a book, some great music and enjoy the sunshine and big blue sky as you look out to the cliffs and the ocean. Can't say I've ever had a bad experience at this place.
