    I can't really comment seeing as i have never purchased coffee at starbucks, but I do think it is way over priced (hence having never purchased any).

    I used to hang out there with friends when we had nothing better to do. But now I just make my own coffee that is just as good for 1/4 the price.

    I like their White Chocolate Frappuccino but stopped because it's too expensive.

    I have never tried the Caramel Frappuccino... must try it tomorrow =)

    LOL! So what im getting here is:
    Starbucks is fun to hang out, but not quite worth the price? They just built one near my school see, and my friends hang out but i never really want to... mainly because i like to support my local book/coffe store more (and its price better and people are nicer)

    I prefer Tim Hortons & Second Cup. Cheaper, nicer, better coffee, & less pretentious.

    If your counting calories, Starbucks isn't exactly your second home...

    Why does Starbuck's call their small size a "tall"? I think that's silly... they should call it "short" and keep it real! I never say "tall"... I always say "small" and I have noticed sometimes they get an attitude with me and don't like it and keep trying to make me say the word "tall"

    It's a great place to do take a break, they are almost everywhere(especially in NYC where they are literally are on every other block) and I absolutely love their non-coffee Vanilla Bean. I never took a liking to coffee in general.

    I like the Starbucks atmosphere... It's a good place to go for a coffee during work and relax for a couple of minutes. Beats out Dunkin Donuts or Au Bon Pain!

    Overpriced caffeine supplementation. I'd rather drink pepsi, coke, or monster.

    Java Chip Frappe is delicious. I used to always get free drinks but since that stopped, I go less.

    I love Starbucks I started going there years ago when I was in high school, we always used to go there and play euchre. I still enjoy going occasionally for their cappuccino.

    It's a good place to relax, get together with friends and talk over a cup of coffee (or my personal preference, a venti chocolate frappucino). A bit more expensive, sure, but I prefer the atmosphere over something like Tim Hortons. Yes yes, their naming scheme is horribly pretentious, but it doesn't really bother me.

    Starbuck's is awesome.
