Sabanilla, Costa Rica

It’s quite possible that no Starbucks store offers better views than this one at the Visitor Center at Hacienda Alsacia in Sabanilla, Costa Rica. Opening up to the expansive views of the Poás volcano, the store overlooks a 600-acre coffee farm, allowing visitors to experience a true seed-to-cup experience.

This store in Milan was the brand’s third roastery in the world and the first in Europe. Though the façade is undoubtedly stunning, the inside is noteworthy as well: A traditional handcrafted Palladian-style mosaic marble floor defines the interiors.

Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos

This charming store in Grand Turk looks like the brand’s popular pink drink reincarnated in a building form. The hub, which opened in 2019, was painted the pastel hue to honor the traditional light façades found across the island.

Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala

The Starbucks design team worked with local artists and designers to restore and convert a historic private residence dating back to the 1930s into a store. This location also houses a serene back terrace, ideal for anyone whose favorite part of their coffee-drinking experience is sitting back and relaxing.

Appearing like a quintessential blend of national-parks-service rustic A-frame design and a log cabin, this store makes perfect sense in Ketchum, Idaho. Of course the views of the Smoky Mountains only make the coffee spot that much more beautiful.

Located in an area nicknamed Forest City, it makes sense that a Starbucks in Savannah honors this title. Hundreds of live oaks and Spanish moss–draped trees line the cobblestoned city streets, hence this stunning art installation hanging just above the coffee bar.

While you’re visiting Tokyo’s Imperial Palace, you can get your caffeine fix at this Starbucks conveniently located in the same grounds. Besides its sleek façade, it’s also a Starbucks Greener Store, meaning it’s designed to reduce its carbon, water, and waste footprint.

Valletta, Malta

It wasn’t until 2019 that Malta got its first Starbucks, and the company certainly aimed to deliver when it came to the store’s design. Featuring floor-to-ceiling wood marquetry and wood and marble finishes, the store’s aesthetic was inspired by Valleta’s heritage as a trading hub.

This store in Lima is the first in Latin America to be built with recycled shipping containers. In addition to a drive-through, the location also has a unique rarity among Starbuckses: a walk-up pedestrian window.

New York City, New York

Spanning 23,000 square feet, Starbucks’ newest reserve store is located inside the Empire State Building. Designed to honor the building’s art deco history, the streamlined interiors are washed in rich jewel tones and ornate gilding.
