Located in a area between a couple eatery's creating tight parking and congestion. Takes longer to park than to order and get served. Often very crowded with UF students spread out across tables w/laptops & bookbags in tow. Difficult to get seating and enjoy your drink/food. If you have to stop here for your caffeine fix, drive-thru is best alternative.

Never again. Waited over 20 minutes for two drinks. Never got them, got my yeti mugs back and left - didn't get a refund. Who knows how long that would've taken. I love me some Starbucks, just not this one. Be advised.

I visit this Starbucks at least 3x/week because it is the easiest for me to visit on my way to work. Very poor and slow service each time. Last time I will be visiting because I just spent 29mins in here getting ONE cup of iced caramel machiatto. I overheard the pple beside me saying they had been waiting 26mins.... More

We are big Starbucks fans. So, a bit disappointed this time. We stopped in for a quick coffee. We needed gas so, it was a good place to stop, have a drink and stretch before heading back out. First, let me say the coffee was as usual, very good. The problem we had was with the facility. The floors were... More

Going in for two cookies, tea, and a large coffee. Waited forever just for the tea, even though that was the first thing I ordered. I was asked to move from the self serve station for an employee to empty out the trash.

Only draw backs , it's run by a bunch of alligators, who can't really do a whole lot because of those weird little limbs. Their tails are pretty effective. The coffee was hot, I pooped like 30 minutes later, mission accomplished.

too long to wait for a morning coffee. need to get their act together so that customers don't have to wait 20+ minutes inside in line or in the drive thru. can't believe they can't process people faster

My daughter loves Starbucks so I thought I would take her there for breakfast. When we walked in everything was fine. Then I noticed a fruit fly in the glass refrigerator case where food is held. Yuck. We ordered breakfast sandwiches and coffee/hot chocolate. When we made our way down the line to get our food/drinks there were flies everywhere.... More
