    Cashier seemed annoyed because I asked to use my coupon after I had scanned. I didn't know that was the procedure. Also there was a bug flying around in th pastry window.

    Massive Starbucks, at least compared to those in New York.

    This Starbucks was recently upgraded to Google WiFi - consistently faster WiFi over what they had before.

    Very improved on speed during morning rush hour. 7 baristas behind the counter all moving fast. Any wait at the bar for a drink is due to the volume.

    This location knows how to get the morning rush in and out in a timely fashion!

    OMG - how did I get sucked into this starbuck's AGAIN. This is the WORST/SLOWEST Starbuck's in America!

    Dan Verakis · September 27, 2013

    Grande dark roast with three cubes of ice. Now you don't have to wait to drink it

    Slowest Starbucks in Chicago. Look at everyone standing around for 20 minutes to get COFFEE! I'm going to Dunkin Donuts around the corner.

    Dan Verakis · August 10, 2013
  • Dan V.

    Every Saturday morning, this is the SLOWEST Starbucks in town! Ugh.

    Dan Verakis · August 10, 2013

    Pay attention. It says light ice right on the cup.

    Buy your Streetwise from the gentleman in front.

    Do you spend more time praying to keep sick Christians out of Heaven than you do praying to keep the lost out of Hell?

  • SoonKyu P.

    Slow wifi and even slower service.

    SoonKyu Park · April 30, 2013

    Bathrooms here are disgusting. They always reek of a homeless man's crotch, and have piss everywhere

    Michael Woolf · April 10, 2013
  • Austin R.

    One of the bad Starbucks. Always a line and always employees talking and doing nothing.

    Austin Reeves · March 21, 2013
  • Lauren H.

    super slow service. took 10 minutes to make an iced chai with no line. walk a few blocks to the Starbucks on Erie and Dearborn.

    What they call a "Zebra Mocha" in California, here is called a "Tuxedo Mocha"! ;o)

    I guess I'm the only person that likes the place. I could work all day from there. Admittedly seem to have a service issue today though.

  • Colin

    Table space is at a premium here. Don't expect to be able to spread out your laptop and books here during the day.

    After you wait hours for a coffee, you can go across the street to the methadone clinic to fix your jones!
