It's a Starbucks but it's really a cut above the rest. The place is spacious - has many different areas well suited for different activities.

This was a nice brand new Starbucks location. We had coffee and snacks on our SF to LA trip using scenic Highway 1. We loved this trip and this location was a nice break on our tour. Carmel by the Sea is a heaven on earth anyway.

Every time I visit his Starbucks, it's super busy! Most times I've waited 10-15 minutes to get my food and drink order started. The place is buzzing with activity and the noise level is high. Expect the bathrooms to be busy.

It had a large seating area, and while the Barista bar and area was fairly normal size to what I am used to in... More

This particular Starbucks is well laid out with a great deal of viable seating. The staff is very personable and thoughtful with each of the several visits I've been there ( I'm a local ). Whenever I want a Starbucks, this is the one I visit.
