Typical smaller Starbucks less a drive-thru; you must go inside but that is not a bad thing. It is clean and has the typical sitting area with wi-fi.

This is the only Starbucks anywhere near northbound I-81 from Abingdon VA. It's maybe 5 minutes from 81 in a cute little town with lots of services - gas, shopping and restaurants. And a welcome respite from the traffic. It's in what looks like an old bank building and could use a little sprucing up. Still, good coffee, clean bathroom... More

The only reliable place to eat in Salem when traveling North and SOuth. Love that we can always depend on Starbucks wherever we go.

Needs a drive thru. Visited twice and both times the order was incorrect. A little disappointed. When you are craving coffee and drive away and realize you have hot chocolate. It was good, but not what I ordered.

Starbucks as usual. Service is on par with other Starbucks. Had not ordered Tea there for a while and was surprised they would ruin English Breakfast tea with heavy flavours not the locations fault tho...

Espresso Macchiato, wet and always perfect! Nice quiet setting to sit and enjoy the great cafe!! It's convenient to I-81 and easy to get in and out of the parking lot. My friend and I had a couple of their delicious offerings this morning!

Recommended. Starbucks is an expensive proposition. One reason fans visit is because they expect a uniform experience worldwide. That's what Starbucks delivers, to it's credit, and this place, we're happy to report, continues the standard. We stopped by for brunch and we're fortunate to take advantage of the post Christmas season sales. It's worth a visit.

Told to get business cards to write my complaint, there were none. Three people working, two customers, and a never ending wait. Rude explanation that the elder lady was off the clock. Then, a lie by her colleague. That seems to be the trend these days. Pressured yuppie workers lie. When they are caught, they are not affected. Hillary Rodham... More

I don't usually think of leaving reviews for coffee shops and small, quick visits however this visit was remarkable and I wanted them to know it! My friend and I were travelling back home from the Color Run this year. I didn't really want anymore coffee for the day and the lady who took my order was very patient and... More
