Any lad (or girl) about town will need the perfect place to take a breather in between major shopping, browsing galleries and attending the theatre. Any lad (or girl) about town will need the perfect place to meet up with friends, have a drink and a bite to eat. Any lad (or girl) about town will know that the perfect place for this is a classically contemporary furnished Starbucks. Let’s face it, there are a million coffee shops out there and out of all them, Starbucks is the number one place to be.
The tagline “your perfect coffee made just the way you like it” is 100% true, you can create vertually any beverage you want when ordering.
Now, for the first time “Starbucks-er” it might appear scary... Everything appears to be in a different language - it still baffles me that the smallest cup for a cold beverage is a “tall” and the biggest is “venti” (but I suppose the world carries on, doesn’t it?). But trust me, there is something in Starbucks for everyone. For the coffee lover they have super strong espressos, for the chocolate lover why not try a chocolate Crème Frappuccino®? Or if you want the best of both world take pleasure in ordering a white chocolate mocha? It may look daunting at first but in the end you're bound to find your perfect drink and then venture into the other "fields of coffee". You'll soon be an expert at speaking the language, these days I find it's pretty much self explanatory
Starbucks is my favourite place to meet up with friends, study, create, design, write, relax and eat. In most stores you can relax on double arm chairs whilst being given the perfect atmosphere to study, create and relax. (Hey, I got A*'s in Physics after spending weekend after weekend studying in Starbucks with friends... And believe me, Physics was hard!)
The barista's (people who make your drinks) are always friendly and are trained in the language of "Starbucks". Ask them for an "extra hot grande vanilla latte with room for cream and a sprinkling of chocolate to go" and they'll have it whipped up for you (freshly) within minutes. Plus, with the new Starbucks VIA™ you can take your perfect coffee home to make instantly with hot water. Still not satisfied? You can buy Starbucks mugs for use at home, there's nothing stopping you from creating your own coffee from the comfort of your own kitchen.
Now, as it's approaching Summer, an extra hot cinnamon latte might not suit your mood; thankfully Starbucks have catered for this by creating a whole range of Summer coolers. Swap your extra hot drink for an "iced caffe latte" instead and relax in the outdoor seating area many stores offer. Or have it take out (a Starbucks take out cup is the perfect accessory for any style icon!) and explore the city.
And let's not forget the range of snacks and meals there is to offer. Choose from muffins, cakes and doughnuts or fruit salads, pasta salads and porridge... Or even paninis and toasties.
Not wanting to have a buldge appearing over the top of your new trousers? Ask for the skinny option available in most drinks and some food. Using skimmed milk and sugar free syrups, it's the perfect treat for anyone wanting to stay in shape.
And let's not forget the relaxing, vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere... It's the perfect place to feel the excitement (or the escape to the peaceful corner of the room) of the city.
With wonderful art decor and stylish furniture, it's definately the place to be this Summer after a long day of shopping or to simply to read a book.
