My co-workers prefer the coffee in this place. We really don’t like the coffee in the office. That is why, if ever the opportunity shows itself, we buy coffee from this place.
Seattle-based coffee chain lures caffeine addicts with upscale roasts, caramel frappuccinos, shaken iced teas and an extra shot of trendiness..
For many, getting their daily jolt of java has become a daily morning ritual, and the cardboard cup with its infamous green label is the close companion of every coffee aficionado. Busy baristas work seamlessly behind the bar, juggling orders for their strongly-brewed drips and signature hot and cool beverages. While providing a wide selection of coffee specialties, pastries and various coffee related goods, patrons are invited to settle down in comfy armchairs and enjoy their favorite brews amid the chatter of the laidback yet caffeinated crowd.
Best Barista, First Class Service, Wonderful Staff, Delicious Espresso, Poor Health Rating, Bad Management.
If you're looking to sit down and relax in a quiet coffee shop to avoid the hustle and bustle of a busy city like Nashville then the West End Starbucks is probably not the place for you. Situated next to Rumba on West End Ave within walking distance to Centennial Park and the Parthenon, this Starbucks is buzzing with Vanderbilt students, busy professionals, bible studies and business people.
At first I was not impressed with a DISGUSTING "78" Health Inspection rating, but I continued on to the counter where a wonderful barista, Lana, assisted me with my order. She was delightful to a tee and gave me some of the most welcoming customer service that most people have long forgotten. Just after placing my order I felt like I knew her and she genuinely cared about my day and my coffee experience. The Triple Grande Nonfat Extra Caramel Caramel Macchiatto was more delicious than any I've tasted before.
If you love people watching, have a taste for great coffee and want a refreshing place to meet or catch up the paper, this Starbucks has the location, the courteous staff and wonderful view you'll be looking for. Thanks to Lana for such a delightful experience, I was truly pleased.
