Pleasantly enlarged coffee shop. Has all the usual Starbuck's items on the menu. Next door to the popular Seaside Market, with whom they share a large outdoor patio for take-out dining.

Standard issue Starbucks. Staff were very friendly and the coffee was good. A plethora of outdoor seating was available.

Nice location... For such a nice location and wonderful atmosphere you would think the staff would be a more up beat and not grumpy!!!!! Always love their croissants. Guess I will go up the street to Zumbar for friendly people!
