    Excellent stock of music and film, hard copies you can hold in your hand. Great service in music world. 4 tiers of cd prices that are criminally cheap for the picks. I'll drive from Daly City to shop.

    The pesto sandwich from the Starbucks inside Barnes&Nobles is beyond delicious! They heat it so that the mozzarella melts perfectly! If you're ever hungry in between reading or shopping, try!

    It's very frustrating to know that there are absolutely no outlets at the cafe. Meaning i would have to drive to starbucks in san bruno to continue studying because all the other starbucks close early

    Not a real Starbucks. Price slightly higher and does not run their promotions. Is cheaper by 10% if you have their card.

    Baristas here are incompetent. They don't know how to make a specific drink. Plus they WILL make you pay again if they screwed up your drink. WTF B&N?

    The Starbucks Cafe is at the back of the store, kind of hidden and strangely stocked.

    I prefer getting Starbucks here than an actual Starbucks. Slightly cheaper, same coffee. But service is much slower.

    love the fact that it has two stories worth of books and such, but a really disappointing 'gay and lesbian' section. :/
