Seattle: First Starbucks Store

Didn’t manage to get the any images of the store inside but Google Images will show you plenty!

While Starbucks fact sheet will tell you that the Seattle’s Pike Market is the first store ever, it looks like the founders opened the initial store on 2000 Western Ave from 1971-1976 before relocating the entire store to Pike’s Place.

The first store is a popular tourist place hawking limited edition “first ever Starbucks store” paraphernalia. It’s absolutely teeming with tourists. You could get a beverage to-go and purchase some limited edition stuff but there are no sit down areas to enjoy your cuppa.

I’m a caffeine addict but not that big a fan of Starbucks but I still purchased some first Starbucks store swag here! Do be prepared to queue if you pop by on a weekend, I waited in line for approx 20 – 30 minutes and was out of the store in 10 minutes.
