This store is unusual for a couple of reasons, faux brick in the design (usually it's just stores in older buildings that have brick), and latticed metal partitions dividing the seating areas. Additionally, the store displays old photographs of Algonquin provided by the local historical society.

Upstairs you will find a second bar with an old Simonelli espresso machine, as well as beer and wine offerings.

This store has been relocated into a larger space that has a splendid design. Behind the bar you will notice shelves, but nothing is on the shelves, so you can see a large map of Evanston. To the right of that, in a little corner, hanging on the wall, is an ornate rug. Why, you ask? Well, because this space used to be an oriental (that's probably what they called it, not Asian) rug shop.

This used to be a basic kiosk, but it was completely rebuilt into a structure that is somewhere between an inline store and kiosk, thus meriting my counting it as a new store.

When a local artist and car enthusiast learned Starbucks was coming to Volo, he created a series of paintings with a clever motif--similar to how coffee blends are paired with pastries, tghese paintings pair various blends of coffee with classic automobiles! And because Volo is home to a classic automobile musuem, you could theoreticall test these pairings out for yourself.

This store has a design not typical for a Starbucks, and the reason is that it was originally supposed to be a Potbelly Sandwichworks.

This store is large and has a lot of cool decorative elements, like the wall right across from the bar, as well as a sectioned off seating area for studying or meeting, but make sure to find, tucked in a corner, a couple of old photographs of the area.
