Being a Starbucks patron forever, this new one in Montego Bay,Jamaica is my fave as the vibe and service was Jamerican! Perfect ambiance with the right music playing. Great coffee and service with a Jamaican smile. Beautifully designed with a window view of the famous Dr. Cave Beach and great reggae vibes. Such a great addition to the popular Montego Bay Hip Strip and to Jamaica….yes more outlets are being planned!

Oh! Don’t forget to bring your old books as this Starbucks collect and give to needy schools  in Jamaica!  I love the way Starbucks does that.  There is no real accessible library for the folks in need and books are too expensive the folks that really need them.  Bring all you can, especially children’s books.

We’d love to see some of those destination mugs one day for Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios and Port Antonio.  Hey Starbucks – we’ll design them for you!

The folks working in the store are very pleasant and well trained.  I enjoyed having a conversation and discussing the merits of double shots, machiatto, picolo and so on.  While our tastes are different we agree that the fresh roast beans are the secret to the best prepared coffee.

We liked the look of the delicious cakes and accompaniments.  Stoicly resisting any temptation we sipped our well earned refreshments in the cool AC of a well decorated and maintained oasis in the middle of the hip strip. What a great addition to all that Jamaica has to offer.
