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.
No longer open 24 hours a day. As of September 30, this Starbucks is no longer a 24 hour one. The sense of community and joining of all these different cultures (late night crowd, hip kids, bikers, racers, random people) is unfortunately lost. This was a nice place to hang out after everything else closes. Beaverton doesn't have a lot of those. The baristas told people they should complain to Corporate if we had complaints about the change of hours. I did, and I hope other fellow night owls in the area do so as well.
It's simply a meeting place. The beaverton 24 hour starbucks is a meetingplace used by many different social circles, from artists, to businessmen, students, construcition workers, the "pcc dropout" crowd, car salesmen, nurses, newscasters, + many others. A fairly diverse economic atmosphere; great for people watching; not the worst place in the world to watch the sun set. most interesting between 9 - 12pm weekdays, and 8 - 2weekends. The baristas are generally cheerful and do their best to get you their order as soon as possible.
similar to a mall food court atmosphere. We showed up at 8:30, hoping for a table before the 9:00 band. Good luck! The place was packed with not an available seat to be found. It was loud and filled with lots of under 21-ers with nowhere else in the 'burbs to go when the food court at the mall closes. I won't be back.
Not a fan of starbucks at all.. This starbucks is filled with the PCC dropout crowd. The "I am cool because I smoke" crowd if you will. Coffeehouses are all about the atmosphere. First of all, its a starbucks, a company that has driven many of the genuine coffeehouses out of business only to replace them with bleak, unfeeling, assembly line-like shops. Some Starbucks shops have been redeemed however by the crowd that frequents the shop. This one however is not. The coffee, although high acclaimed, is nothing special, the people are not welcoming. The only plus about the plus is the live music.
Snobby withouth being Upscale. It was this very Starbucks that prompted my patronizing Coffee People. I don't recommend frequenting Starbucks in general and this one in particular, especially on a Friday night. When I first began frequenting Starbucks the servers seemed down to earth, friendly people. The drinks were made by hand. Now the people have an attitude and the very atomosphere has a 'Corporate' feel to it. As far as the live music is concerned the place is too crowded on a Friday night to enjoy the selections.
