We stopped in here a couple of times on our weekend trip. The first time, the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The second time, they were out of whip cream, but still friendly.

I stopped by this Starbucks on a workday around 2 PM. There was traffic all around the store and most of the parking was used. The few parking slots available was more for compact cars - not a Yukon. I had to drive around twice to make sure I hadn't missed a suitable parking slot. Well, I had to park... More

Always stop in here to get a fresh hot brewed coffee with fresh half-and-half cream. The breakfast sandwiches are very tasty and served hot and fresh. I was surprised how they prepare and serve the hot breakfast items.

In a land where coffee most commonly is brewed from something that stays "fresh" for hours, and milk is a creamer in powder form - Starbucks is coffee heaven! Love the assortment, the design, and the croissants taste almost like made in France! Super friendly staff too!

I frequently make the trip Dallas to Oklahoma City and back. I have stopped almost everywhere along the I35 corridor between the cities. Consistently the Starbucks in Gainesville has been the nicest place to take a break. Courteous staff, patient, clean bathrooms and of course, great coffee have made me a regular customer there.

After a Mother's day fraught with disappointment and stress, I wanted to get my wife a treat for her special day. I was shocked by the service I received at the Gainesville location. My wife had asked me to order her a Vente Frappuccino for Mother's Day, and when I arrived at the store to order I was told they... More

Although this is a typical Starbuck's, the drive thru is outstanding in that it is faster than the walk in. The staff were very friendly and the coffee really good.

This is one of the mid points in our frequent drive to the Dallas area. We normally do not review Starbucks because we visit so many different ones. But this one in Gainesville is just a bit nicer than most. The staff here is very friendly and efficient. The restaurant is always clean and just has a good feel. The... More

Great service. Always great coffee and tea! The almond croissant is always my favorite. Chi tea is a must.

Typical Starbucks with fast service and a drive thru. Close to the Interstate. Friendly service. Coffee and food was right on par.
