    Did someone say Starbucks?

    I just accidentally stumbled across this site and wanted to share. It has hundreds of pictures of different coffee house locations all across the US and Canada.

    Here is the one by me:



    Post the one by you. This could be fun.

    he doesn't have mine! It's across the street from work at the San Marcos Hotel.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    This one is nowhere near me, but I do go to it when I'm in Stillwater(which, BTW, is a wonderful looking town/downtown. Expensive though).
    You're more boring than you know.

    Closest to my current home; this is Prairie Village, Kansas.


    Close to the new place. Two of 'em about equidistant from my future house, each in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.






    I've said it before ... the "Starbucks everywhere" site is great for planners looking for examples of high quality, albiet suburban-scale retail and commercial buildings.

    (Intended to be a separate post)

    Only Texas would have Starbucks with high-rise signs.

    Scroll down to the one in Lake Mary. Yuck. It's about on a par with the Texas photos above.

    This ought to kill the nostalgia (see "Nostalgia Factory" thread in Cities and places forum) :


    But then again... They're also here in Chile, even though it's just one store.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    This is the closest one to me. Strangely, there are no Starbucks in Des Plaines. The few in Mount Prospect and Arlington Heights come in close, but this Rosemont one I can get to the quickest.

    This is the one in St. Albert (work)... typical commercial big box type development location...



    The closest to my house would be the one in West Edmonton Mall, which is just a standard location inside of a mall... not worth posting a pic, that's for sure!

    Fortunately, we don't have many starbucks 'round here. They'd never survive the onslaught of the hundreds of these that pepper New England:

    I'm obsessed.



    This is the one from the town I grew up in.

    It's very odd. You have to walk downstairs to get to the bar.

    This one is on Main Street (Hwy 9), this was a residence until early 90's when the Browns, who had lived there for some 40+ years past away.

    Hometown.

    On the Colorado - Denver link, I cant believe the number on the 16th Street Mall.

    I still prefer Dunkin Donuts or Tim Hortons.

    We have 2 starbucks but, here's the competition.


    Dammit, I did it, I finally got a pick to work.

    This one's my local...right across from City Hall. He doesn't have a pic of the other one I hit, which is on the way in from the subway.

    I don't have a Starbucks anywhere in my county!

    We are, however, getting a new locally-owned drive-thru coffee shack just a 1/2 mile up the street from our office. I just hope they carry Green Mountain coffees.

    The top one is in Harborplace at the Harbor in Downtown & is the place I get my skim chai & scone every weekend before working at my grad school restaurant job. The ones in White Marsh Center & The Avenue at White Marsh are on my way home from school. The Avenue is the first "New Main Street" in Baltimore, its success has inspired a couple more. Doesn't it make sense to create a new one Main Street rather than rebuild the many neighborhood business districts?

    I would go to the one at Mount Washington in Baltimore or the little kiosk at MICA (he missed that one). I lived in Bolton Hill, which is an awesome neighborhood. I can't believe you work in the inner harbor and live in White Marsh. What a terrible commute. That "main street" is such a hoax. It's ridiculous that a developer names a 12 foot wide sidewalk that is surrounded by parking a "boulevard" and people lap it up as if a slice of Paris was sent from heaven.

    Division and Paulina is a 4 minute walk from home, though there is a great bakery owned by a local right across the street.
