  • This means that after 4pm, you can order wine and food from a different menu.

Quotes

“We’re renovating the entire space. It’s going to be totally different and more upscale.  We’ll start to serve wine and stuff.” – Barista at this East Blvd location.

Talking Points

  • You still order from the barista, that doesn’t change.
  • You can’t order from the Starbucks Evening menu until 4pm, so no wine with lunch.
  • Even though orders will still count towards your Starbucks Rewards Program, you can’t redeem a free drink for wine or beer (not legal).
  • We recommend the Mayobird as the closest coffee shop on East Blvd.
