Review
Vast, empty, and cavernous outlet in the Miraloma district that looks like they haven't fully moved in yet. No outdoor seating, but a good number of small tables indoors with retail racks and a fireplace. Espresso is served with a thin, pale crema and a thin, flavorless body. They rarely serve espresso outside of paper, but they do have a few saucerless cups. Its coffee is weak even by drip coffee standards, and it's among the worst of any Starbucks I've tasted. Very non-standard quality for the chain.
