i have two concerns - one quality of latte is not as good as it used to be and it is for every starbucks. specific to this place, the workers showed laid back attitude with serving queue growing and they were going at their own pace.

Nearly always crowded with tourists, this is at the bottom of my list for coffee in downtown Santa Cruz. And I'm a Gold Card member!

this starbucks was by far the slowest service i've ever encountered with the coffee chain. they are located in a safeway and in the morning they have all the safeway staff lining up buying coffee and also paying for stuff they bought in safeway.

Starbucks rocks wether for hot or cold drinks depending on the weather or mood. Staff is friendly & professional and the lines weren't bad especially with it being a weekend

The Starbucks we visited was part of the Safeway Supermarket opposite our hotel in Mission Street. The coffee was good as it always is from past experiences.

Thank Mick S
