Starbucks Around the World: Wheaton, IL

tumblr_mhz3pngMYc1qmywbko1_500

I found myself in Wheaton last weekend to attend a shared bill concert of Hubbard Street 2 and the Wheaton College Orchestra..  Downtown Wheaton is cute as a button, and so is its Starbucks.  Besides its good looks, this Starbucks was about the friendliest I’ve been to, well, ever.  It kind of felt like an alternate universe out there in the West suburbs.  The cafe is small, and a girl sitting alone was willing to share a table… for THREE hours…

Friendly baristas, fast service, fresh coffee, and a comfortable place to sit and grade papers.  Just another day in paradise.
