Was visiting our son and Daughter-in-law and stopped in for an ice tea and lemonade. $14.76 and 18 minutes later we received our drinks. Really? Nearly 20 minutes for an ice tea?

I love the consistency of Starbucks - I get what I order no matter which one I go into. There are a few Starbucks in Cambridge to choose from and an easy landmark to start out from.
