Even after they redid the front area and gave the interior a facelift, still they havemthendirtiest bathroom, and that front area seems to attract the overflow of homeless people from the SC Roasting Co. across the street.

This joint offers the same GMO coffee served at every other location. However, this particular one is a bit under the weather when it comes to cleanliness.Keep walking to LuLu's just a block and a half down Pacific. They have incredible coffee and delectable treats - set in a dark, cherry wood, exposed brick cafe. Reminds me of Europe.

If you like a variety of coffee this is the place. They have free wifi and if you like Starbucks this is as good as any.

I'm sorry that so many people go to Starbucks in downtown Santa Cruz when we have Santa Cruz Roasting Company right across the street and Peet's a block away.

The shop is centrally located in the shopping district on Pacific Avenue. I've been to the restaurant several times. No surprises here. It's a typical Starbucks with all the usual coffee and tea drinks, salads, sandwiches and sweets. The courtyard in front of the restaurant is pleasant; it's a nice shaded area where you can get out of the sun... More

I am generally not a fan of Starbucks yet this store is a reserve store. They prepared my coffee from the beans I wanted and the way I like them prepared. What a nice cup of coffee..

I generally rate Starbucks Very Good if it's a typical Starbucks with predictably decent coffee, and this one is in that category. It is set back a bit from the street, with a small garden-type area in front of it, so do keep your eyes open so as not to miss it.

This Starbucks is downtown so parking is a bit of a challenge (for a person not familiar with area) they do have a nice outside patio and the baristas were very nice

The place is set-back from the street - a small cosy place but busy. We, a group of three friends, had gone on a Saturday afternoon for some coffee & conversation. We had cake slices, cake on a stick, black coffee and cappuchino. We prefered to sit inside, but there was outside seating. The service was swift. Only drawback -... More
