Well Starbucks is Starbucks and no one is pretending that the coffee is brilliant but it is good enough for when ever other coffee shop is busy. The staff are busy and over worked, the coffee is weak in this big cups and it is totally overpriced like most things branded. The frappacino's however are excellent on a hot day... More

The correct spelling is Starbucks Lambton Quay. There is no pee in it. It might also be known as Starbucks Old Bank Arcade. I guess that's why you don't get many reviews.

Wellington has such amazing café and coffee places. Unless you are really craving a slice of home and starbucks does that for you, I recommend not going here. I went because I was a wee bit homesick and I wanted an Americano. Typically starbucks all around the world can do an Americano and it's a little slice of home. However,... More

Normal high quality food and drinks for Starbucks. They also sell plunger coffee which was great too. Pricing is average for Wellington and area to sit either down stairs or up.

The place to hang out and people watch, but really, there are better cafes serving coffee around this area.

The staff are too interested in dancing and checking their phones for messages. No eye contact when taking order. Got the order wrong. I explained that and was just ignored while they served the next customer. Dirty tables. Tables not cleared. Sugar all over counter. Our group agreed we would never come back. I left my coffee, didn't drink it.
