    For those Starbucks junkies. Every time I come here I am always happy just by how well I have been treated. I have come here almost every day as of late and always my order is remembered

    One of the worst-run Starbucks DC. Also, your wallet might get stolen (ours was). Then you can really enjoy the staff; they'll berate you for asking about it, adding embarrassment to your pain!

    I walked in on a Sunday morning and things seem to be just fine. It's right next to the Archives metro and has a lovely seating outside.There were very few customers and the service was pretty quick.

    Best Starbucks I have ever been too. The staff has excellent manners, very polite. A warm environment for all that love coffee.

    Love this Starbucks! Great service. Very accommodating. Sometimes a bit slow. Small location. Great for sitting outdoors.

    Decent sidewalk patio, but baristas overwhelmed with traffic even on a weekday afternoon. If you just need a quick water/soda there's a snack cart right across the street.

    Friendly but s l o w staff. There are like 4-5 people working at one time but took me 15 min to get a regular coffee and a pastry warmed up. Hella confused.

    They love to blast reggae here. But if you love the riddims (or bring headphones), chill out at this Starbucks close to the National Archives.

    These guys need to understand that when I say no room for cream I mean, give me all of my coffee. I'm paying for coffee that's what I want.

    Most of these tips are from cranky assholes. You try working morning rush hour at a Starbucks!

    Conveniently located but plugged with annoying tourists using the loo. Outlets are a pain to reach unless you like crawling on the floor.

    They are way slower than other Starbucks, and the store is a good bit smaller.

    They seem properly staffed, but there's always at minimum 2 people not working while the others pick up the slack.

    Felt sorry just two people working. But sat outside and saw the shift and another partner cone out from backroom area like 20 minutes later. They close at 730 we got there at 700 not good at all

    Worst customer service I've ever encountered at Starbucks. They don't listen when taking your order & act like the line is a cattle call. You're better off walking two blocks up 7th to the next one.

    If you ask someone to repeat their order by saying "what happened?", then I can safely assume you don't give 3 shits about your job.
