“Do you really need a review of a Starbucks?”
Review of Starbucks

Starbucks
Ranked #29 of 86 Coffee & Tea in San Jose
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 December 2016

I mean, come on, they're all the same inside, aren't they? At least to my eyes. Maybe if you're a Starbucks regular, you'll notice the difference. Like, "oh, they used a different shade of green on the shelves" or something.

But basically this location delivers a solid Starbucks experience, and there are always lots of people here. They picked what used to be the best corner in Willow Glen, which means almost no parking and lots of people in the morning before school/work, and also not much seating. But it also means a great perch to hand out in, if you do score a seat.

It's even better if (unlike me) you can drink their coffee in the afternoon, when there's plenty of seats, and the people-watching is still good.

Have stopped there for coffee multiple times over the past several months. This location also has pastries and sandwiches, but haven't tried them so can't comment. As for the coffee .... well, it is a Starbucks, need I say anything else?

Easy to find right on the corner. It's Starbucks you know what to expect.
Parking is not so great. And traffic is terrible during commute hours since they did a road diet down to one lane In each direction.
