The coffee is very good, but this Starbucks has great difficulty handling even modest crowds in a timely fashion.

Loved this neat place, quiet ambiance and nice nooks to chat or read. Not a lot of choices to eat but overall a cool hang out place though more space required!

Starbucks is clean, friendly and always has my favorite Tazo Ice tea in stock. I really like their specialty products as well.
