Oldest Starbucks store
Those who are from Seattle or who have been there will tell you that this is not just any ‘Starbucks’ store. The guidebooks and brochures call it the ‘Original Starbucks.’

 

Oldest Starbucks store
This is said to be the very first of the long line of the company’s coffee shops around the world.
This one is in the busy Pikes Place Market in Seattle, Washington.
(In the pic — there’s also the original Starbucks Logo.)

 

Oldest Starbucks store
They say it was in 1971 that Starbucks began serving its beverages.
But I also hear that the first store was moved here after it was set up elsewhere in the city for a few years.
In that case, it might be better to call it the oldest Starbucks store.

 

Oldest Starbucks store
There was a large crowd outside and inside so I skipped the trip into the cafe. But I really would have liked an order of tall Frappuccino from the oldest Starbucks store. Next time, maybe.

      The store seemed to have an old-world charm and it was nice to see the original logo. I'm glad I now have pictures of it.

      I'm sure you had a coffee there too. I would love to have a good look of the inside of the store, the next time I'm there.

      Thank you for coming this way, Jackie. 🙂

    I didn't get the part that it was set somewhere else. The next line adds to the confusion. Was it picked up and relocated?

    I don't like Starbucks but would love to visit this story for its history. Beautiful clicks, Dee!

      I meant to say that I hear that Pikes Place is the second address of that first store. It's still called the 'First store,' tho'. It was moved here a few years after it was open in another location in Seattle.

      It does carry the charm of another time. 🙂 And the old logo adds to that charm.
