This was my first visit to any Starbucks coffee shop. I have been a regular visitor of Cafe Coffee Day at multiple places in Mumbai and occasional visitor of Barista.
This place was big and had both indoor and outdoor seating arrangements. Seats were placed very close to each other, so privacy is not a USP of this place. The place was so noisy that it was difficult to hear the person sitting opposite to me. The staff was good, helpful and service was also quick.
Grande Honeycomb Crunch Caramel Cofee: I wanted to order something else but the lady taking the order recommended me this one. They write the name of the customer on the glass and call out the name when the order is ready. Coffee was topped with whipped cream and crunchy caramel. But they gave only a straw to drink it, and caramel pieces were big enough that they would not fit in the straw. In the end, the glass had left caramel pieces at the bottom. The taste was good but similar to ones by CCD and Barista which are priced at almost 60% of the price of this coffee. The cost was Rs. 308 with taxes which is very expensive. 3.5/5 on taste.
Crunchy Chocolate Cake: This was given to all the customers sitting there for trial. the cake was very soft and melt in the mouth. It had some crunchiness of something I was not able to make out. Taste of the cake was very good but I am not a fan of such kind of flavours so would not order it. 3.5/5 on taste.
Overall a good place with high priced menu. I would definitely like to go there again to try out their food menu.
