Phoenix New Times' Description

Since its founding by a trio of aspiring coffee roasters in Seattle in 1971, Starbucks has grown to become the largest coffeehouse in the world, with upwards of 20,000 locations in Phoenix and around the world. Named for the chief mate on the whaling ship from Moby Dick, the company didn't begin chasing the Great White Whale of world java domination until the 1990s, by which time it was opening a new store every day. A turbulent economy has since forced it to retrench, but the chain remains a powerhouse both commercially and politically, thanks to its op-ed-penning chairman, Howard Schultz. A purveyor of whole foods, Starbucks typically farms out its secret recipes to a single, Starbucks-owned bakery in each city, and now sells a good deal of its coffee beans at grocery stores. Find any and all local locations on Voice Places.

    If you need to get coffee fast, this Starbucks is one of the fastest I've been to, even when they are busy. It ties with the Starbucks in ASU Taylor Place for quickness.

  • Amina B. on 04/30/12

    Awesome baristas that dance like ballers to Super Sonic. Oh, and lots of windows make this location a bright spot to get your work done.
