This neighborhood store, the only one outside the Melbourne city centre, is smallish, but be sure to look out for a cool painting of siren drinking a cup of joe.

Though next to a mall, this store is actually pretty cool because of the Asian art it displays, especially on the second floor. Be sure to walk up the wooden staircase to see several cool art pieces as well as a tall lamp covered in red cloth.

Cockle Bay, Sydney, Australia
OPENED: 8/2/2001, PHOTO: 1/27/2011

This newly-renovated store has the funkiest design of all the Sydney stores. Table, chairs, seats, and the interior decor give the store a very modern, almost futuristic look. And situated where it is, it's a spectacular place to people-watch along the bayfront. But perhaps the coolest feature is upstairs, a repurposed cart used as a condiment bar!

This store, in a heritage building, is the closest to the Central station and a good choice for my first Starbucks visit in Australia. The area is Sydney's China town, and the store displays a small menu in Chinese, as well as Japanese and Korean.
