A two story Western style Starbucks Coffee may not seem all that special at first–but as you visit each room you’ll find that each room has its own theme and decoration. There’s a lounge, dining room, and so on–it’s easy to see why its a registered tangible heritage site. Relax and enjoy the coffee in a retro atmosphere!
