Starbucks took a LONG time to get to Bainbridge Island, but once they did, they opened up a beautifully-decorated store, highlighted by a map of the Kitsap Peninsula and old photographs of the area.

City Center - Bellevue, Bellevue, Washington

One of the few stores outside Seattle's downtown that does not open on the weekends. But fear not, the Downtown Bellevue store is just one block over, and I just spotted that infamous "Coming Soon" banner in the building across the street. One thing about downtown Bellevue, though--the small number of tall buildings allows for more distant views, like the snow-capped mountain visible behind the Transit Center (click More...)

This designers were oh-so-clever when designing this store--they managed to position it so that the sidewalk crossing the parking lot (a fairly unsual feature for grocery stores) leads right to the Starbucks' doors. Brilliant! The city's planners were a bit less brilliant, however, when they decided to name a new thoroughfare "New Bunk Foss Road". You'd think they would have realized that "Bunk Foss Road" is a god-awful name and does not need to be reused.

Yet another store that still has those ass-ugly white tables "decorated" with the roast-identifying logos (the older ones). But not for long, if customers keep stealing them. I guess people will steal anything these days, not matter how ugly. I'm so glad they came to their senses and discontinued those tables.

A table looks like a big tree cut in half. Photos of the neighborhood adorn the walls. Not sure what there purpose is, but light cream curtains with words on them hang over the bar. The condiment bar is completely different, an oval with trash can underneaths, and a special container for pouring coffee that has been overfilled. Even the bathroom is different, with a coat hanger I've never seen before, as well as a Dyson airblade hand dryer. And I'm sure there is something I forgot to mention.

This, one of the newer stores in Seattle, is a very cool store. Open until midnight on the weekdays, and 1:00 on the weekends, it has been fairly busy the few times I've walked in, whether in the middle of the day or later at night. Distinctive features include non-standard couches and sofas, a dresser drawer for a condiment bar, stylistic lamps, and mirrors on the walls. Around July, 2000, this was the first store where I saw a music listening station. Since 2010, this store underwent a dramatic redesign, and became of the few Starbucks that serves beer and wine.

The original location was one of Starbucks' earliest, and while it is sometimes sad to see history make way for something new, this new location is splendid, with two stories and a light colour palette that fits the eclectic nature of the neighborhood.

Despite this location's unspectacular exterior (as is typical of those locations adjoining grocery stores), its interior decor is striking, with its bright red coloring and curve motif, expressed in the tile on the floor, the carpet, and the walls. Additionally, a documents placed above the fireplace detail the store's participation in the conservation of a local watershed.

I was told this Starbucks is the one closest to Howard Schultz's home, and as such the location of many pet projects, like the now-defunct Starbucks Cafe. I'm told he visits this store, one of the few still using the LaMarzzoco portafilter espresso machine. And now, this is one of the few Starbucks to serve alcohol.

This store, built in an old garage, has a garage door that opens, though not so much any more because the flies are attracted to the food. Inside you'll find out-of-the-ordinary tables and chairs, and a dresser drawer for a condiment bar. Across from the bar is a unique mural. But, but, but there used to be a school desk like from middle school, and on a recent visit (2004) I did not see it. What happened???

The original Starbucks location, though technically not. A reader tells me the original store was a block north in the Conklin Hotel/Harbor Heights building on the SW corner of Virgina and Pike. That building was torn down in the mid-70s, forcing the move south to their current location. To see a photo go to http://clerk.ci.seattle.wa.us/~public/phot1.htm and search for "starbucks".

Now this store is posh, starting with the staircase that takes you to an exclusive second level dedicated to the Starbucks. You might notice first the outdoor balcony, and I'm sure sitting outside can be pretty nice on a pretty day, but you won't get a view of anything but the street and buildings. Inside the store, you can get a view of… yourself! In a mirror that fills an entire wall. Once you tired of inspecting your visage, take note of the two LCD monitors on the back wall displaying an ever-changing series of artworks. Finally, at the very back, when you are tired of looking at views, yourself, and art, you can get sociable in the small conference room separated by an ornate curtain.

If you look really hard... at the 1600x1200 version of this image, then you might be able to see the price schedule that reveals this as a Starbucks locatation. BTW, they must have given this bank the "Key" to the city, because it's branches and ATMs are all over the city.

Company-owned stores inside hospitals are rare, and this one has to be the prettiest of them all. It has a design that would mke me want to hang out for hours--if I didn't dislike hospitals. Besides its cool design, this store, and its sister kiosk, are the only two stores to have begun operating out of "husky" carts before the store's construction was finished.

This photo was taken pre-earthquake, so I can't promise the building still looks the same. The interior of Starbucks headquarters, however, I would imagine is as cool as ever. Built in an old Sears warehouse, this is the largest occupied building in Seattle, and the office space has the type of amenities that would rival those of any "cool" corporation.

This location preserves the brick interior of the existing building--always a nice touch. But what puzzled me was what this existing build was. I asked the barista, but he knew nothing about shoes--instead he told me about an antique store and an old man with one leg. But the mystery was revealed when I stepped outside to take this photograph--the sign on the building reads "Washington Shoe Mfg. Co.".
