“Nothing special”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

I regularly drink a coffee from Starbucks but the one near the station in Geneva is probably the worst one I have ever visited. The staff are somewhat arrogant and unfriendly. I had an argument t with one of staff and had to call Starbucks head quarters about the incident.

I find they the coffee despite what they say is never consistent. It is always dependent on who prepared the coffee. What I don't like is being asked if I want something with it. The coffee already is expensive and anything else is pure robbery.

I used to eat New York cheesecake many years ago. Starbucks suddenly reduced the size of the pieces and that annoyed me immensely. It was for me a way of putting up the prices. A few weeks later they then put up the price.

Not by far very good value but from time to time, it is all right.

“Much like a Starbucks anywhere”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

If you're really in need of an American-style coffee bar, certainly do come here. If you just want a regular coffee or espresso (or the "renversée" unique to Geneva) any local café will do you as well if not better.

“Why would you go here?”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Why would you go to Starbucks when there are so many other places around with better coffee and specialty drinks? Seriously, even if you "miss a taste of home", you can get a non-fat soy latte at Boreal or Gilles Desplanches or maybe even Martel! Seriously, don't do it!

“Overprised and not up to standards”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Ordered 2 double espressos. 1 arrived double and the other was much shorter. When asked why, I was told that the machine wasn't properly regulated. What? Then get it mended for the price of a Starbucks, its the least they can do.
