The service and coffee are what I have come to expect from Starbucks...delicious latte--best in town. The staff was so courteous and paid careful attention on how we wanted our coffees prepared. Also very clean bathrooms.

The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Service is always fast and friendly. I would give it full five stars but unfortunately the bathrooms were dirty as well as the tables

Everyone knows Starbucks. The Vista location is conveniently located in the heart of The Vista. They offer great coffee, tea and snacks. They provide an area to mix and mingle with friends.

Great coffee as usual and excellent service. But, the decor at this Starbucks is quaint and makes you want to sit and enjoy your coffee and pastry.
