Starbucks Coffee, Coventry Rd Ottawa - Food Gypsy.

Starbucks the Easy Way

Published On April 15, 2011 | By Gypsy | Gastronomy, On The Street

Just a little Friday Afternoon Quickie on Food Gypsy.

Under the category Convenient Caffeine we find… drive through Starbucks.

That’s right, no need to exit the cozy confines of your vehicle, just speak directly into the little box and they make your swanky giant-sized coffee, just for you.  Snooty coffee-house coffee and a smile, in an oh, so convenient drive through format.

Oh sure, for many this maybe among the signs of the coming apocalypse.  Velour bikinis at Walmart was much more end-of-the-world stuff for me than a caramel macchiato passed though the window of your car, which I found was a pure delight.  Nay, joy.

All new Starbucks Coffee experience.
(I don’t get out much.) 

This ranked as a “Golly, gee whiz” moment in my morning compliments of my friend Diane who thought clapping my hands with glee the very mention of a drive through Buckie’s was just a touch over the top.

“There’s a Starbucks DRIVE THROUGH?  OH BOY!”

You’d think she’s be used to my Polly-Anna disposition by now.   Huh?
