After looking up the word in the dictionary to make sure of what it means, I can say that the interior design of this location is "stark", and not entirely pleasing to me. It needs... something. Something besides the cool art on the wall.

Just the fact that this store is across from an FAO Schwartz makes it a must-visit. But it has a downstairs as well, which is extremely unusual. Unfortunately, it was closed off, so I couldn't check it out, but that just means I'll have to return.

This store is very well-decorated. Chenille, or perhaps corduroy, curtains cover the windows. Though the store just opened, the walls already sport some excellent artwork. Of course there are plants to add to the decor. And let's not overlook the unusual, yet striking, black paint on the exterior.

I thought this was just a neat design that Starbucks came up with, but according to a visitor to my site, this used to be a Friendly's. Not being from the northeast, I never would have recognized it.

It's appropriate I guess, as the road-trip-loving barista on duty when I visited was exceptionally friendly.

Note to the manager--you must keep her on staff forever; otherwise my caption will be out of date, and my lazy self hates revising captions.

Besides being in a very history city, this Starbucks is cool because it displays 3D ceramic artwork. I was told it stays up longer than the paintings, so maybe it will still be there when you visit. If not, have a cup of joe and go visit historic Concord, or go live deliberately in the woods at the Walden Pond State Reservation just a few minutes away.

Grrr... this might be the most poorly-designed Starbucks in North America!!!

A) No walk-up window!!!

B) No restrooms!!!

C) Nowhere to park the car after getting drink to see if it was prepared correctly, or if you need something else. You have to go straight out to SR-9 and drive a mile or more and make two u-turns to get back.. unless you back up against the arrows like I did... TWICE!!!

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???

Cyclists and pedestrians--good luck!

Yet another in a series of Starbucks built in former Friendly's locations, according to a local who is missing his old breakfast places as they are turned into Starbucks.

If pursued by ruffians, you can duck into this Starbucks, grabbe a DoubleShot, leave a few bills on the counter, and escape down the long hallway leading to the back door. With luck, your pursuers will be delayed as they marvel at the angled wall that makes the space appear curved.

And the bathroom is oddly shaped to boot.

Stores Closed Before I Could Visit

The following stores are ones that I was not able to visit before they closed. Each of these stores represents the loss of a small piece of my soul. If I miss enough stores, I will eventually lose all of my soul and become like one of the walking dead. I appeal to Starbucks to alert me ahead of time before a store closes so that I will not lose my soul in its entirety.
