Patision 2

Athens, Germany

Voted the best Starbucks in Europe, this store, in an old building, sports a very cool tile floor, a set of back doors that lead to a patio. But that's just the bottom floor. Follow the wide stone steps up to the second floor, and you will find a very large space, almost suitable to host a dance, I would say, with tall ornate ceilings. The staircase continues, albeit with wooden steps, at various angles up to a third floor and possibly beyond, but Starbucks' space ends at the second floor. But even without that 3rd floor, this seems like one of the largest stores in the world. Too bad I could not get a better photo because of that stupid stand out front!
