Starbucks Around the World: Cleveland, OH

2012-12-09 14.51.15

I think I might be entering a new phase in the Around the World Series.

Enter the introspective “view from my table” picture.  Not having a buddy with me to snap a goofy shot outside with thumbs up, this shot is from a lovely second story cafe in the theatre district of downtown Cleveland.  I happened upon it on a rainy day with some cash in my pocket and several hours to kill, and thankfully, Cleveland never disappoints.

  1. Love the series! I checkout the non-chain coffeehouse scene wherever I travel, but I’m always finding myself at Starbucks in various places too. It’s kinda cool to compare and contrast different locations I have been to the one at St Armands Circle. One that stands out is in Cumming, Georgia. It’s huge, with conference rooms and all and the customer service is very good too. Look forward to seeing where your Starbucks hopping takes you.

    1. Thanks! I started it around 2005-ish, I think… an impromptu picture in front of the Starbucks in Huntington, WV with a thumbs up because I was shocked to find Starbucks there. I was an employee at the time, so I always tried to go to SB stores to use my discount. Then it just turned into this thing I do. I do love the independent coffee houses, but I like to say that SB is like the Catholic church – you can go to any one in the world and pretty much know what to expect! A few of my favorites were the international locations like Kusadasi, Turkey, and Heraklion, Crete 🙂 because it was such a unique experience. Your blog looks interesting and I look forward to keeping up with it!
