As I have mentioned previously Stavanger has finally gotten their own Starbucks. After a few years searching for a good location and negotiating with the town conservator about the looks of the entrance, the coffee chain was finally ready to open up shop in an old bank vault in the middle of town.
I defied the crowd and went in for a look. Granted I decided to wait a few days after the grand opening, so the worst ques had died down a bit. I was very pleased with the result. I must say I didn’t expect it to have as much charm and atmosphere as it turned out to have. The interior was cosy and the nice big chairs and sofas was comfortable to sit in. They had even kept some of the interior from the old bank vault preserving some of the old.
If you bring you coffee with you just outside the door you can enjoy it on the steps of the town square overlooking the harbour and the boats that are in. For me this made an ideal spot to sit and read, write or just watch the world go by. I’m sure I’ll treat myself to the occasional Frappuchino in the sunshine (if there was some more of it). If someone could please tell me what hailstones has to do with June I would appreciate an answer.
