THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Starbucks Restaurant Review

: The sleek, casual d├ęcor at these espresso bars seems straight out of Pottery Barn. The inexpensive menu reads like a hit parade of home-style favorites: lasagne, chicken pot pie, pizza, meatloaf. But dinners like those excite us least. We prefer a breakfast of hearty frittatas or huckleberry pancakes. At lunch, sandwiches made with thick focaccia bread are less alluring than pizette, the individual pizzas built on excellent herb-accented yeast crusts. Desserts are lavish and often coffee-laced, as are the cocktails. Hot and cold coffee drinks constitute the liquor selection. The Hula Mocha Chip, a dressed-up frappucino made with Kahlua and Starbucks Java Chip ice cream, is one of the more decadent concoctions we’ve ever pulled through a straw. If you dare to be different, you can order beer or wine-but you won’t find any scotch and soda here.
