Starbucks – A Nice visit

With the first Starbucks on the French Riviera at Cap 3000 and now the just-opened one in Nice Etoile in the city center of Nice, I decided to go check it out on a Monday.

Of course, no surprise for the cookie cutter, or should I say coffee cutter, look as they all are the same. The line was long, with about 20 people waiting, along with limited seating capacity. Located on the street level floor of the shopping center, it is easy to find and is right beside a major entrance and exit for better visibility/accessibility.

I couldn’t help wonder if, when, and where a third one will show up next!

    I’m curious, do the French find Starbucks exotic? They seem so ubiquitous, but with only 2 in your area, maybe they’re more of a novelty than they are here.

  2. I think for the French, it is a novelty plus the ideology of something American being cool (like we think of something French as chic). Time will tell!
