Ok. So normally in would never review a coffee shop, especially one of the mega brands like Costa or Starbucks. After all, everything is Generic. Same food, same coffee etc.
But the difference here is the location. This Starbucks is located on Shamian Island. I have been a few times over the years.
Shamian Island is a nice little retreat from the hustle and bustle of GZ. Though you need to go through all the hustle and bustle to get there. Lol. Read the TA review of Shamain.
This Starbucks is in the main street and if you get your coffee (Americano with milk, tastes like every other American I have ever had), and sit out on the veranda early morning, then you get a taste of old world china. And for that alone, this makes this Starbucks the best Starbucks in GZ.
Make sure the weather is in a warm period so you can sit out on the veranda and not this mental cold we have been having recently otherwise you will have to sit inside and then you could be in New York, London, Paris of Chingford.
Mornings and evenings are best.
