Remodeled...but with no real advancement.
Yeah they didn't do the leg work and understand how ANTI SOCIAL people who visit Starbucks really are.
SB is like a bus, no one wants to sit next to anyone unless it's the last option.
People will sit at a 6person table and MAYBE one person will take X point across and down the way.
Placing counter seating, with stools, facing out the windows (which SHOULD HAVE BEEN one long bay window) would allow for single seaters to occupy, wait for it, one seat.
Get about 6 ppl along the entrance wall alone. Then have tables.
Oh, and whose idea was it to create the KIDS NOOK? Tiny chairs with vertical black keg tables. I'm 6 1, I'm not sitting at the kid's table for holidays and I'm sure as shxt not paying $6 to have my knees in my chest.
Another poor design of space.
*You DO realize ppl "hunker down" fir hours at SB, right?
One orange bench seat for 3 ppl is the only adult option for those who feel wooden school seats belong back in school only.
The only trash recepticle is near the pickup area//entrance/exit door.
There are two holes in that counter.
Both are trash.
Oh wait, wayyyyyyyyyyyyy over the the right, where you won't see it, is an ADD ON round bin that has LANDFILL & RECYCLE options.
No, they didn't build the L/R into the counter or even add labels to it so 92.7% of ppl will trash their potential recyclables.
And liquid? Einstein wasn't hear to explain that a bag full of trash and coffee dripping like a water spout is going to create a mess on the floor, on the staff member and make a line across the lot as it drips unnecessarily.
Yup, small cafes have them.
Not here though.
Its Starbucks. Same as same as.
Coffee obsession in town is better.
Also "Coffee O" in woods hole.
Mary Ellen's behind Dairy Queen does a killer breakfast and coffee. 2 mins from "the buckers" and supports the local economy.
Local owners will give you more, better deal and advice about the area.
The 19 year old at Starbucks only knows their parents fridge and the beach. "Uhm, sorry."

*picture of the "Kids area" crowded by boxes added today.
The local news lived up the pure few advertisement that Starbucks would cease the use of straws (still in use today by the way). This was news?? Local coffee shops and local stores (Windfall market) have already gone this route.
But oooooo Starbucks is doing it.
Fascinating since their recycling efforts in every store I've visited is ~fcuk you~ to nill.
So a company who decides to back off on an expenditure is somehow patted on the back while their recycling efforts are on par with running a diesel engine to power the building.
Let me let you in on a HUGE idea that I saw in Florida.... SPAGHETTI.
Stir it with an uncooked spaghetti stick.
Done..eat it, or toss it into the compost bin (yes there are companies that have compost bins) - they SMARTLY double as LIQUID bins so employees don't have to drag a bag of coffee-bleeding trash across the floor, over their clothes and across the parking lot.
This same coffee-soaked employee makes your drink by the way.
And today, the "kids area" seating section, named for its tiny chairs and keg tables, was overrun by boxes.
Good news, they finally found the adult sized chairs from storage.
I prefer not to sit on school house chairs when I pay $6 for a titanic-iced coffee.
