Journey to the “Original” Starbucks

I visited Seattle for the first time over the 4th of July weekend and on the “to-do” list was to visit the original Starbucks.

Fun fact: The original Starbucks no longer exists. The original storefront was located on 2000 Western Ave from 1971-1976. 135 ft away, however, in the famous Pike Place Market, now resides the longest standing Starbucks.

But before we could enter the hallowed Starbucks and indulge in historical, coffee deliciousness, we stopped by the Piroshky Piroshky Bakery and procured a pair of Russian delicacies that would perfectly compliment our Starbucks drinks. I think Red would be proud.

In the end, I went with a good ‘ol tall mocha frappuccino while my friend Bridget opted for the coffee-free caramel frappuccino. I bought a mug too!
