This is always a crowded place unless you are there in the last 10 minutes of their day. They get a lot of foot traffic! There is plenty of wi-fi in the place if you want it, but most people end up sitting outside or walking away with their selections. I'm a hot chocolate maven, and they make it very... More

This Starbucks seems clean and busy with limited seating. A good choice for internet since I was able to upload video very quickly when I needed to. Otherwise, just another Starbucks.

The Starbucks on the Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade is the busiest Starbucks I have ever seen. In spite of that you never have to wait long to place your order. Amazingly the staff never loses their friendly upbeat charm. Even at the end of their shift, after getting pounded for 6-7 hours they are still friendly and upbeat. Amazing.... More

The coffee is good and the staff is kind. All the patrons get along and help each other. Not a big indoors but a nice size patio. Close to the beach. Plenty of plugs. Clean.

All in all and average Starbucks. If you're looking at reviews for Starbucks I assume that you like their coffee and are looking for information regarding service and atmosphere. We all love Starbucks product, and most of the time I get great service. At this location its pretty good. I've never had a mistake in my order. I normally am... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
