Unless you live in Brookline and are familiar with Brookline Village, chances are that you might miss Starbucks. It has all the variety and comfort that Starbucks is known for; layered with a small-town feel that is often missing from "big store" brands. Saturday morning means a long walk around Brookline's reservoir followed be an exercise-driven reward at our local... More

Good coffee place in Brookline in Coolidge Corner. Somewhat small place as it gets quite occupied during weekends. They have got outdoor seating as well.

Starbucks is Starbucks. What distinguishes different properties usually is service, and I found (on 2 visits) that there's just no enthusiasm or energy with the morning crew that I encountered here. Not surprised that on both occasions, there were very few patrons.

It's a normal Starbucks, very small spot and might not be recognizable from a distance. But from my own experience the barista makes my coffee to perfection, it never had a burned bean taste like some other locations.

I ordered a cup of tea and the air conditioning was set so low, I had to get out of there as it was uncomfortably cold. The washroom was not clean which was reported by another family member as well. The staff were not friendly. The outdoor seating is one table and two chairs. Overall, a disappointment.

This is a typical Starbucks and offers several flavors of coffee, hot/iced tea, and hot chocolate. There is seating indoors and outdoors. They offer coffee cake, brownies, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, cookies, rice krispie treats, and baguettes. It is accessible from the Green Line.

Every bit as tasty as the other Starbucks. The staff is particularly friendly. And there's good people watching here as it's right on Harvard Street in Brookline.

The coffee is always consistent. However, the food products have changed many times over the years and the price keeps escalating wich has caused me to stop eating here.
