Everything you normally find in a Starbucks is available here, including the paraphernalia such as mugs and such. Being right downtown, seating is often a problem in such places and although this has a good amount, sometimes it's just too full to find a place for you and your friend. I've found they move the tables around a bit from... More

Went in for coffee and a sandwich. The staff did not seem very organized. They had run out of True North blend and asked me if I wanted to wait for a fresh brew, to which I agreed. What I got was a pour over which is not as nice and not what I wanted. The restaurant was not especially... More

We had breakfast here twice. It was at the corner of Government and Yates. it was convenient to our hotel downtown. We had lattes, black coffe, egg sandwiches, croissant and great cinnamon rolls. The store is very clean. The staff is friendly and well trained. We had breakfast here two days.

The ladies behind the counter are great, they work as a team and you get your order quick. Top notch quality at this location.

Pumpkin spice latte is my favourite during this season! It is always delicious. Wifi is very fast as well. As for collectibles its unfortunate they don't carry little espresso cups (3oz). However can be found online. ❤️ Starbucks!

While it is a great spot on Centennial square and Chinatown, it is just another Starbucks, with middling coffee and mediocre food. It will scratch the itch of familiarity if that is what you're looking for, but don't expect anything special from here.

I was going to Starbucks for a quick little breakfast ( a scone and tea) with my grandmother and sister. When I ordered I asked about ingredients because of my anaphylactic peanut allergy and they weren't serious at all. They kept saying "I think" or "I'm not quite sure but...". We were very unimpressed. I will not be returning to... More

There's usually a fairly reliable level of good service at any Starbucks - we had a bad experience. When my granddaughter, who has allergies asked about the ingredients for a baked good she was given a guess by the barista - not good enough! There are charts available but no help was offered. As a result we had drinks only.

Hot day thought I would go into this Starbucks and order a cold drink. I order a venti unsweetened black tea lemonade. A real nice pleasant male took my order. He was also helping out the female barista. First she puts syrup in my cup the male catches her and he throws out the contents she asks him why he... More
