  • Starbucks Coffee Around in the United States and around the World

    Starbucks Coffee Around in the United States and around the World.
    One of the world's biggest success stories when it comes to selling coffee is the famous Starbucks-brand.

    I read a book about them a while ago as well and it impressed me how they got started and how they became such a big International brand.

    I would like to see this thread growing by contributions with pictures of each store. My ultimate goal is to have pictures of all stores, exterior and interior collected here (pretty big goal thinking of the number of stores in the world)!

    If you have any other items to add to the story, please take a moment and share that as well whether it's good or bad.

    Starbuck outlet #100 in Singapore has been in operation for over a year I believe:

    Situated in the Waterboat House, next to Merlion Park.

    Not many Starbucks with their own water features I think:

    Starbucks 10-12 Westmoreland Street, Dublin

    Bewley's Cafe on Westmoreland Street, which dates from 1896, closed in 2004 (together with the Grafton Street cafe which has since re-opened though in modified form). These cafes were something of a Dublin institution.

    After lying empty for some five years, part of the Westmoreland premises is now a Starbucks, and a branch of TGI Friday is located at the rear of the building with an entrance on an adjacent street, though they are actually connected inside.








    (There is also another Starbucks across the road in Westmoreland Street within modernised former offices premises which I didn't get to photograph.}

    Starbucks Waverley Steps – Princes Mall, Edinburgh

    Another Starbucks in Edinburgh which I hadn't noticed before!
    That is probably because it is located in the far reaches of a shopping mall that I rarely visit - Princes Mall, formerly called Waverley Shopping Centre and before that Waverley Market.
    Located next to Waverly Station at the east end of Princes Street, the mall is built below street level so as to comply with the Act of Parliament that prevents any building on the south side of Princes Street obscuring the views.

    A 1983 photo of Sigve's recently posted here includes the site of the shopping mall before construction, and it clearly shows the slope, actually steps, leading down from Princes Street to the railway station immediately alongside the lower floors of the imposing Balmoral Hotel (then the North British Hotel).

    In a recent refurbishment of the station, the Waverley Steps have been covered with a glazed roof and escalators have been installed. Half way down is an entrance to the shopping mall. It is at this entrance where the Starbucks is located.



    Looking up at the Balmoral Hotel through the new roof.




    I took this while riding down on the uppermost escalator. The bicycles on the top right are parked on the flat roof of the mall, a pedestrian plaza. The entrance to the mall is between the escalators where you see the Starbucks sign, though the café itself is actually on your right as you enter the mall.

    Rather more "Olde Worlde" architectural surroundings.

    Guoman Tower Hotel, St Katharine’s Way, London



    Rather a nice photo at Tower Bridge which could even have gone in the "through the arch" thread, although it was taken rapidly, one-handedly and in un-considered fashion while on the move. Think "Oh look! there's a Starbucks!"
