Strarbucks is the most famous coffee and coffeehouse company in the world that is based in Seattle, Washington, USA. Accordingly, it has about more than 15,000 stores, including licensed stores, around 42 countries. About two weeks ago we went to Seattle and just had a stroll at downtown area. When we were at the Pike Place market, I thought of going to the first location of this famous coffee house. The oldest location of Starbucks is at 1912 Pike Place, between Stewart St. and Western Ave in Seattle. As it is in the market area, it is very crowded. If you are going there, don’t drive. You can park in one of the parking areas at downtown and just walk.
We were there early afternoon on a Saturday. I thought of going in to get something, but the line was way too long and it was hot and humid. I cannot wait as we have two kids in tow. I will go back there one of these days when we will be in Seattle again and buy something, a souvenir perhaps or their mugs for collection. According to some reviews, aside from their coffee and drinks, there is not much of a selection in terms of food that is being sold there. It is more of a souvenir shop for those who wanted to set foot at the oldest Starbucks location. Besides the long line, outside the store were also some sidewalk performers singing and lots of tourists taking pictures.
