Pretty typical Starbucks but probably more busy than most, to be expected I suppose because of the closeness to Harvard (just a block away).

Between November and the spring, I visit this Starbucks once a week early in the morning. There seems to be a big turnover in staff. The service is usually good in spite of the turnover, but some of it is inconsistent. There is one new...More
