I am happy about this post not only because the Arabian Starbucks kicks American Starbucks butt but also because it means I had a really great excuse to return to it!
I will be the first one to say that I love Starbucks. When they built one on campus at Texas A&M my senior year I literally altered my diet and had sweet potatoes for dinner most nights in order to squeeze as many drinks as possible into my dining dollar budget. It was a problem.
I also want to dedicate this post to my former boss Chris Baxter -- she may be the first (and only) woman that I have met that loves Starbucks even more than I do. PLUS I miss her so Chris, this is for you!! 😘
Starbucks in Doha are nearly as easy to come by as they are in Seatle. This makes it no surprise that there are TWO in City Center Mall, one of which Zach and I visited today.
Here is Starbucks written in Arabic.
Surprisingly though, over the main entrance it is written in English.
So when you walk in the look is just the same as a typical American Starbucks, even the music is the same!
Especially in comparison to American Starbucks where there are only one or two good comfy chairs and they are ALWAYS taken.
Here, you never have any trouble finding a spot.
It just goes on...
Notice too the view we have here-- it is second floor so you get to see right down the streets of downtown! Especially beautiful lit up at night like it was for us tonight!
You can even find your perfect overpriced mug!
This person didn't even order a drink-- just came for the tiramisu!
BUT the best part is -- they serve it up in real mugs for you!!!!! Ahhhhh it is the best! Especially when you are splitting it with your boo and get a giant venti mug!
We did cheat a bit though and I ran across to another coffee shop and snagged a kronut to go with our coffee.
This international Starbucks gets two big thumbs up from me!
Not only this one, but all of the Starbucks in Doha! They all have these huge floor plans and real mugs!
Not to mention great service! Haha
Thanks & Gig 'Em!
