The Original Starbucks
The Original Starbucks Seattle Reviews
It All Started Here Jun 07, 2012
Making a pilgrimmage to the original Starbucks is a must for any coffee-fiend. The original is located just across the street from the famous Pike Place Market in Seattle. The outside is pretty non-descript, but you will notice one difference: the original logo is a nude woman, whereas the popular logo has long hair covering her nakedness.
Expect a long line, but it does move quickly. There is even a greeter inside to direct you to which cashier to go to. The menu is just like any other Starbucks, so you can order the usual or go for something different. Upon placing your order, you are directed to the next line to wait for your order. The baristas are super-busy, but have a smile on their face.
There are souvenirs available to purchase with the Pike Place logo, signifying the original. I thoroughly enjoyed this visit, and would definitely return, even though I have crossed it off my bucket list.
