Besides being in Mexico City's Centro Historico and just a block or two away from El Zocalo, this store also benefits from a unique light fixture in the center.

Out in what you might call "the burbs", this store was the first I encountered in Mexico that resembles an American-style strip mall.

The Polanco area is upscale, and this store sits near hotels that host famous actors and personalities, many of whom have signed cups that are displayed in a glass case.

FIRST CUSTOMER!!! This newest store in Mexico City presents a newer design that includes recycled materials and includes some unusual or unique design elements. Most unusual is the large siren logo engraved into a wooden wall.

I was not expecting a store in a hospital to be special, and I was surprised to learn that this store is the first (in Mexico, I believe) built with recycled materials. Another point of distinction is that it might be the smallest in Mexico.

This three-story location, besides being ornately decorated, is the largest in Latin America. On the second floor you will find an open-air terrace, and, for the more business-oriented, a conference room. Walk up to the third floor and you can enjoy a completely open-air rooftop.

Nuevo Leon, Mexico City, Mexico
OPENED: 2/2/2005, PHOTO: 12/22/2009

Besides being one of the few drive-thru locations in Mexico (and Latin America), this store offers valet parking and two stories. Its second story is very unusual because it is enclosed within the building yet open to the air, but what I found extremely unusual, for a Starbucks, is that smoking is allowed in this area.
