“Great Coffee on Piccadilly”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Quick service, good Starbucks quality. Right across street from major double decker bus tour pickups and drop offs. Just two blocks from Hard Rock Cafe and 20 minute walk to the Queens Buckingham Palace. Starbucks coffee and the queen! what can be better??

“Busy Starbucks...homeless steal the milk!”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

This is a busy Starbucks as its right on Piccadilly, I visited early on a Saturday morning where there was a queue but it moved quickly. I bought one of the plastic reusable cups - but the coffee stains the inside of the cup! My second visit was around 7pm on a Sunday evening where I bought a hot chocolate (in my reusable cup!) enjoying the view over Piccadilly and Green Park and while I was sitting there a homeless person ran in and filled up a flask with milk on the condiments table! The staff did see this but ignored it.

“The carrotcake improved”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

To write a review for a particular Starbucks is a bit like describing a snowflake at the North Pole, "most of these hangouts are very much alike".

With the double espresso and the caffe latte we ordered a Carrot-cake to boost energy levels after flying in from Norway. It had been on display for too long and was close to bone dry. A new cake was partitioned up, and our visit was just Starbucks perfect.

“Yummy festive coffee”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

It can get a bit crowded, but you can get free Wifi and the self service is fast. Check the special coffee's they are offering since they may not be there the next month. I tried a pumpkin coffee last time and this time I tried Egg nogg! YUMMY
