I'm not usually a Starbucks customer, but as this was connected to my hotel, I gave it a try for breakfast. The bacon and Gouda sandwich was excellent! Though I saw the woman behind the counter pop it in some kind of microwave-looking oven, it tasted fresh. It definitely did not have that "heated-up" taste or feel to it. I... More

By far the nicest Starbucks I have been to. Staff was very pleasant as well. It's downtown and is attached to a hotel, very big space for lots of ppl to sit down and enjoy their coffee. Also has a downstairs.

This Starbucks is located in hotel. Great place to meet and visit. Nice fireplace that is warm. Popular with locals.

The people at Starbucks in the Alex Johnson are super-friendly and fast. They are not a typical "corporate" Starbucks, so their system doesn't support buying your coffee and reloading your Starbucks card in one transaction. They also seem to run out of breakfast food items more than I've experienced elsewhere, but they do serve a big chunk of downtown in... More

Rather than waste gasoline and cause even more of a traffic jam, we parked and went inside to order our coffee to go. Obviously the place caters to the drive through since our order was not filled for about 10 minutes, as we watched the drive through drinks get handed out. To top off the poor service, the drinks were... More

The coffee was what we expected from Starbucks....but the place could have been a little cleaner...table looked like had not been wiped down in a good long while not to mention the overflowing trash can. So take your coffee to go and find a nice bench outside and people watch!

If you're staying at the AJ hotel and you get breakfast coupons, this is the place you'll be using them. It's a very large Starbucks restaurant, but if there's a convention at the hotel, be prepared for a wait. Food is typical Starbucks (just okay, but very expensive), with coffee being their focus ... I was a bit disappointed that... More

Our Hotel provided breakfast vouchers to this Starbucks - we went on the morning of Sep 12. We were told there was no[regular] coffee - the machines were inoperative. We could only get Cafe Americana. They were also almost out of non-meat breakfast sandwiches but we were able to each get one. The Cafe Americana was weak and luke warm,... More

Starbucks coffee sets a good standard and I like it because I know what to expect. This location, however, adjacent to, and accessible from the Alex Johnson Hotel, was one of the largest and nicest I have seen anywhere. It was a real pleasure to take a break here.
