“Not a friendly place”
Review of Starbucks

Starbucks
Ranked #1 of 2 Coffee & Tea in Poipu
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 March 2013

The lady who helped us was not pleasant at all. When she gave my drinks, I did say " You are not friendly, are you ?" No comments and when I went back to get another coffee cake, she did not say anything about my previous comment and why I had made that statement or what she had done wrong.

If any of my employees behaved that way, they would not last too long. Sad Starbucks in Paradise !!

Stopped here everyday for coffee and each day the service was less than what you come to expect from Starbucks. The staff is slow and a smile is a really rare event. They may say the words but is was not a welcoming experience. The coffee is the only reason you stop here.

Visited this location almost daily while staying at Kiahuna Plantation! They are open early and each day I was met with a smile, some great customer service and some small talk! Nice folks and atmosphere that kept me coming back for my coffee fix!

The condo we were staying at in Poipu had no coffee, so off we went to the Starbucks in the Poipu Shopping Village. Like all Starbucks, it was clean, bright, with great coffee. They had snacks, sweets, and the usual variety of robust coffees.

The only problem, as with ALL Starbucks, are the customers who order their double latte, mocha, cappuccino, soy, chai, triple pump, with steamed milk, but the order has to be such and such, and other assorted BS when I am trying to get a single black coffee. I'm half kidding, but it seems impossible to just walk into a Starbucks and quickly get a black coffee.

This Starbucks is like all the others: great coffee in Kauai, but you have to tolerate the folks who describe a 30-second order of how they want their coffee drink.
