I'll be honest in that Starbucks is just OK for me. I can take it or leave it. However, my friend is obsessed with Starbucks, so one of our first stops was the original location at Pike Place Market.
This place was so packed, the line wrapped outside. We waited for a good while before getting inside.
Inside, there no seats, just a long counter that was never empty enough to really take in the atmosphere of the place.
At the counter, I ordered a Pike Place Roast and loaded it up on sugar and cream. And, of course, managed to spill half of it on myself.
So, I definitely respect the Starbucks hustle. It's made a huge name for itself.
And, I can get down with a good cup of coffee. And, I think this is fine.
But, in reality, it's more to say you've been to the first Starbucks.
And, now I can say I have.
