My Morning Coffee

My Morning CoffeeHsinchu City-20130617-00159

Most people know that I am not a big fan of Starbucks due to their corporate culture. However when you get good customer service every day for almost two years, its worth mentioning. This particular shop is located off Guan Fu Rd. across from the University. They greet you with a smile and a good morning every day, and if you happen to be Mandarin challenged they can speak some English as well.

The food and coffee is good with their food better than what you would receive in the US, and coffee is excellent as always according to Starbucks standards.

The mornings are not too busy so this location is a good place to do work, and catch up on some emails. Now during the day and on weekends this location is very popular so consider the noise during those times if you need to work. They open up at 6:30 AM so us early birds can enjoy a wonderful place to work in the morning.
