Starbucks

Today I went to the first Starbucks in Portugal. I have to admit that although the concept of the store is interesting (you can choose every little detail for your coffee based drink, muffins, cookies, etc), this Starbucks is very disappointing. First, it's in a shopping mall (Alegro in Alfragide). That's already bad enough to make someone skip it. But even worst, the place is small, very small. There are 10 tables maximum and I thought that it would have wireless, like many other Starbucks. No signs of it.

So besides being something new to try, I don't see any reason to come back to this Starbucks. I'll wait for the one in Belém or a better place like Chiado. And wireless would be great, actually it would make the difference, because the coffee is no big deal.
