This is the first Starbucks store and many who are fans geek out here just for a chance to take a picture. The line is really long but they are used to it and have a pretty good system for moving you through. That said,...More

Generally always busy as people want to visit the first. However, it is a Starbucks, just like all the Starbucks, and there are plenty in the city. So, if you just want the coffee, avoid the line and choose another.

Very small shop. With a very long line. We did buy a few cups that we never seen in other shops. Not really a big deal.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but my friends are, so this was a must visit for them. The lines are very long during the day when the tourist are around, but they move quick.

We had to stop by and see the shop. It is the original Starbucks, located in the Pike Market area. The line is long, out the door and down the street. I didn't wait in line to buy anything. In the end, it is still...More

As a coffee aficionado, I would be remiss in not stopping at the very first location of this brand. The barista was friendly, the coffee (Pike Place) was strong, and considering the line and number of "selfie" delays, it was worth the few minutes I...More
