“Just another Starbucks...”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We visit this Starbucks multiple times during our yearly trip to Captiva. Staff is always friendly and quality is good. Just wish they would change out their merchandise. I always buy a "Florida" coffee mug that Starbucks sells but this year the cups were all exactly the same. I understand now from reading other reviews that this isn't like every other Starbucks or is run under a different umbrella. I still think its important to keep your merchandise current.

“Another Starbucks minus the gift card usage”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

As others have pointed, out this Starbucks doesn't accept gift cards which left a bad taste in the mouth of our group. As long as you know that going in you can expect a normal Starbucks experience.

“"OUCH"”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Very similar to Starbucks everywhere except…………….pricing !! Grab your wallet…close your eyes…..and……..think New York City pricing. Unfortunately, it is the only game in town.

“THREE THINGS”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

It had to be something special for me to even consider writing a review for a Starbucks. For the most part when you’ve seen one you’ve seen ‘em all. Lucky for us our daily visits to the Starbucks on Captiva were made memorable by Shandella the morning manager. She served up our favorites fast and hot remembering our faces and preferences after the very first visit. She was like a machine remaining calm through the never ending stream of obnoxious, demanding, caffeine deprived, just passing through customers that have no patience or mercy for relaxed island attitude coffee shop employees.

I frequent this particular Starbucks a week or two each year but last week we were treated with service that we would normally only expect to find in a NY/NJ area store. Baristas that know your face at 7am in the morning and have your regular poured and ready to travel before you reach the counter. No words spoken – just a phone app swipe and you’re on your way.

Then there was a delicious new bold roast from Ethiopia that I haven’t had before. Let’s see that’s two and the location makes three. Walking a block down a palm tree lined lane for a fresh, hot, flavorful cup of coffee in an island paradise with exceptional service - - - what more could you ask for?

So kudos to Shandella, a bold-bold brew, and a location in paradise! Together they made up for not being able to use my phone app for my purchases.

“Starbucks+beach=love!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

We are loyal Starbucks customers, and happy to have one in a short drive from our cottage. Staff was excellent and drinks were delicious as always. Having my very berry hibiscus on the beach.... priceless!
