Great Starbucks that has a nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and our drinks were awesome as expected. I loved that this Starbucks sent me an email seeking my feedback regarding my experience. Oh..Yes this Starbucks has a great central location in downtown La Jolla

Not a lot of attention to customer satisfaction here, but that was okay. It was a nice place to stop, have a drink, and charge our phones. Only one bathroom, which meant you had to wait to use.

Interesting experience at this otherwise very nice Starbuck. Wanted to grab a cup of coffee after morning walk, lines were incredible with only two people serving the entire crowd. Returned in the early afternoon, again two people tending the shop. Drink quality dependably good, and cafe ambience quite nice, but staffing to work-flow definitely a problem.

Good service. Hardly any wait. Not a lot of seating. Only one bathroom with a broken lock. But good coffee!

We like Starbucks a lot. Coffee is of highest quality. Food, especially the cakes are amazing. There are many Starbucks in San Diego. Always good to go!

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Starbucks and always try to stick to independent coffee shops. I usually only go when someone I'm with wants to go, or if I'm out in public and need a decent "clean" restroom to do business in. However, Starbucks is offering "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" for their special holiday drinks from 200-500pm.... More

Great Full Service Starbucks - usually fairly crowded but the lines move quickly and staff is friendly. Seats are more plentiful than some locations. This is a great place to pick up a Starbucks when walking about Girard or when waiting for a shopping party.
