The store on Pike Street was good 40 years ago. It's been downhill since then. Their coffee tastes burned now, I won't drink it.

The one in Panorama City, Los Angeles, across from the Home Depot & In N Out.

Blue collar Starbucks serving people paid by the hour so they get you served fast. Plus the LAPD motorcycle division is across the parking lot so no panhandlers.

Right here, right now
I go to the Starbucks where all the Jeep Gladiator guys hang out. We share speed bump stories over whatever Metrosexual lattes we can get our hands on.

A soccer mom popped in once and bragged that she once drove her Wrangler off of a curb. We were like, "no effing way!"

I truly hope for her sake that she had all of the proper aftermarket shopping cart protectors installed on the thing!There is Nothing as low class as a scuff on the Rubicon decal.

The only time that I've gone to Starbucks is when my teacher wife got gift cards from her students for Christmas and I used them to buy stuff at an airport while we were killing time before our flight.

True story.

I was sent to do a job in San Paulo Brazil for several months, in a sketchy part of town As an outsider who did not speak Portuguese, the office tradition was to escort all guests about 3 blocks to the Starbucks for a daily 10am coffee.

So every day one of the office ladies would take turns and walk with me to translate and to ensure I wasn't hassled by anyone. The place was known for petty crimes at that time unless you were with a local person.
On Day Number 4 or 5 the Starbucks staff started to write "Senior Gato" on my coffee cup and it stuck.

Turns out, Sr. Gato is a nick name for a playboy with many girlfriends. They thought since I was turning up with a different gal everyday for coffee, I was getting busy with them.

Flattering, since I was twice their age.

Don't remember where this was, I was just riding down the street and it turned in on it's own!?
