…disappointingly similar to the coffee at Starbucks in New York City.
The baristas also speak better English than the baristas in New York City, and the decor is freakishly similar as well, right down to the little salt shakers filled with nutmeg or cocoa, and the calming yuppie music playing quietly in the background.
I had to force the barista to speak to me in espanol. And if you’re wondering, I demanded that he tell me that iced coffee in espanol is “cafe con helado.”
(Also, we learned a great tip this weekend — ice at restaurants is safe to drink if it’s not cubed (homemade). Big, round, commercial looking ice is safe to have in your beverages.)
