                Trondheim is lagging behind...

                Can't wait to find a Starbucks coming to town here.... I bet it is just a question of time. I'd do it myself if I had a little more time - and gutts.

                    Well, if you live in Trondheim, you still have to go to Oslo....

                      The Cube, Leith Street, Edinburgh

                      It was Mayday morning, and long before daylight dawned I had already decided that the foggy low cloud that completely enveloped the town mountain had won.

                      Seeing the sunrise just wasn’t going to happen.

                      As for the newer tradition of taking a year-on photo to end my Skyscape 366, well, I doubt if I would even have matched the moody foggy scene of one year ago. Plan B was to head for Leith, and so that was how I came to be wandering along a street which I rarely have reason to take, and even my frequented bus routes miss in a complicated diversion –and that even without the extra complexity of the tram roadworks.

                      So imagine my surprise to discover a Starbucks to photograph!

                      It could easily have been there for ages without my knowing, but in subsequent googling I came across a mention in some business news from October 2011 regarding acquisition of the lease of premises in the new office block known as The Cube, in Leith Street. Leith Street isn’t actually in Leith; it is just off the eastern end of Princes Street in Edinburgh’s city centre. I read that Starbucks would pay £42820 a year rent for the site. Ummm, sounds like they’re going to have to shift a LOT of coffee! But I know nothing of economics, and the article ends in an upbeat tone with business speak about “a reflection of positive sentiment in Edinburgh’s city centre office market."

                      (No, I didn’t actually go inside, but I did end up in the Starbucks at Ocean Terminal in Leith itself, with a Mocha …and whipped cream, naturally!!!!)

                        Coffee apart, I was rather pleased with my photograph in the previous post – especially the reflections of the pedestrian footbridge.

                        For many years the site of the office block and the adjacent entertainment and leisure complex was one of the city’s infamous “holes in the ground” – existing streetscape demolished, and the site then left to dereliction, in this case for over 20 years, whilst a succession of development and planning proposals rumbled on and on. The bridge in its original design, sticking out of the side of the looming bulk of the 1960’s/70's St.James shopping centre, was by many dubbed “the bridge to nowhere”.

                        Now it is the plans to totally redevelop the shopping centre that drag on and on…and in the seemingly never-ending and hugely reduced transport project we will not see trams heading down to Leith.

                          Or a Monday morning perhaps...

                          I read in the news recently that Starbucks are struggling all over Europe. Might be the reason why they do not come as far north as to Norway.... strange, because I read somewhere else that Norwegians is the highest consumers of coffee per person per year.

                                Haha..., I really like Ralfs picture above :-)

                                Tried Starbucks in London (black coffee or what you call american, and latte).
                                My opinion after that is: it's just a name!
                                I've tasted better coffee other places.

                                Before I just had an unqualified opinion because I had never tasted it, now I have tasted two different types and made up my opinion.

                                The latte was latte like everywhere else, and the black ordinary coffee tasted like Nescafe.
