      some local young baristas, as I do, it's comfortable to hang out with them.

      Besides, I've wound up at a Starbuck's on a date with my wife, and I've got lots of good memories associated with them.

      •  In many areas it's the only coffee place around (1+ / 0-)

        And even where it isn't, since I'm not a big milk-based coffee drink person (and don't like to spend $4 for a coffee), preferring brewed coffee most of the time, Starbucks is usually the only place where they make a half-decent cup. Plus, free refills!

        Honestly, I go there when I need a place to work, and only buy the coffee because it would be rude to just sit there.

          under two bucks. And get a free refill. I rarely buy lattes and such anymore. They're the expensive drinks. I haven't had a "four-dollar coffee" in about two years.

            $1.75 to fill, with free refills. I usually throw in a quarter tip, so it comes out to two bucks. I go there often enough to get a free drink eventually, and always make sure to get the most expensive thing on the menu, nearly $6.
