Starbucks Around the World: London, KY

August 21, 2009

After an amazing (still-to-be-uploaded-to-Wordpress) adventure in the Smoky’s, nothing brings you back to “civilization” like a roadside rest and a strong drip coffee.  Having little hope for a Starbucks store between the park and Louisville (a 6+ hour drive), we had stopped off in Jalisco, TN for a canned double shot at a gas station before finding this beauty in London, KY.  Bam.  One-stop shopping with a clean place to pee, a drip coffee, and a Steak N Shake next door.
