I was impressed the coffee was good and the service was really quick considering the length of the lines.

Starbucks at Northstar was pretty crowded since it's one of the only coffee shops in the area. The drinks were also more expensive than usual. Despite the long lines and the wait in the shop, there was free wifi (always a plus!), and the staff was still able to be super patient and nice to customers. The service was quick,... More

Starbucks was the only 'restaurant' open and available for breakfast in the morning in the village where I was staying. Everything else was closed. All hail Queen Starbucks!

Always can count on a good cup of white mocha from Starbucks when I travel. I can never trust paying $6 at other places and getting disappointed. Thanks you for being consistent Starboard Baristas!

Not my favorite for coffee, but conveniently located and all the usual over priced drinks and baked goods are here. Nice for a quick breakfast in the morning.

Getting a quick coffee at Starbucks in Truckee. Note this Starbucks is located NEXT to Safeway in Truckee. There is a Starbucks in Safeway. The quality was standard fare for Starbucks and I had ordered a birthday drink so they wished me 'Happy Birthday' on the container. Nice people and quick service.

I love Starbucks, but in ski season, this place is just terribly frustrating. You will wait a long time, your drinks will take a long time, they will likely be out of some pastries unless you are really early, and they will likely mess up your food order, so check it. Just need more staff?

The Waffle Cone Frappuccino was great. Tried all the refreshers with coconut milk and they were so good. The only bad thing is that you can't use your App discounts and the WiFi password is very long.

Best employees around, each one works together and remembers your drink after just a few visits. The new point system is better than the old one

Cosy spot with plenty of seats, decent wifi and a very quick service on the coffees. They don't want to delay you getting into the slopes so here they are well staffed & efficient for a change!

Thank Robsski
