Relative Size & Amenities:
This Starbucks is fairly non-descript, tucked away in the northwest corner of the second level of the student union. It's not difficult to spot from the main corridor if you came in from the building entrance facing University Circle, but it's easier to get in from the entrance that's closer to the administration building (down the stairs). There is no "Starbucks Coffee" signage to be found, just that green medallion with the mermaid.

There's no Starbucks wi-fi to be had here, but if you're a student, you'll have your own login to the university's services. Seating is abundant, with tables, benches, comfy chairs, you name it, inside the Starbucks and outside. There's also plenty of outdoor seating, courtesy of the university.



Drive-Thru: No

Food and/or Lunch Available:
Breakfast sandwiches, lunch, snacks are available, but this is just one of many places to pick up food and drink in the student union. If you prefer something else, look around.


Review:
Was surprised to see this one as busy as it was, given that it's summer and we've got a pandemic. My visit probably raised the average age of their customers that day by a few years -- I noticed a few raised eyebrows from students who probably wondered about the "old guy" with the Batman mask -- but I wasn't the oldest in line. Really nice folks behind the counter -- I was annoyed that they didn't have a tip jar -- and after taking some photos on campus, I was here for a nice, cold drink. While I've seen a few signs for the Kiwi Starfruit Starbucks Refresher (and the Star Drink, which is basically the Refresher but with coconut milk), nobody has been able to cough one up, apparently due to a recall. Given that this is Mean Green territory, I was fortunate enough to actually try this green drink for the first time, as this location had fresh product. The verdict: It's slightly tart and acidic, with some apple and pear notes to it. Maybe even a touch of green apple. It hit the spot for me in the nearly hundred degree weather, although Starbucks fanatic Mrs. QDV didn't care for it.

"Thanks, Mean Joe!"
