    yuck coffee just dont get it tbh can you get tea there?
     
  4. Yes they do tea and it's cheaper than their coffee :biggrin:.

    Also the only place in the world where I’ve never had any trouble connecting to their wireless broad band.

    Well no, you dont get coffee, you get some oer thing with a long name and high price.
     
  6. Never been in one in Scotland, I don't really like coffee and I don't like paying over the odds for tea either.

    Subway is the same. My parents went in and had to go through about 10 options to get a tuna cob.

    Subway is difficult.
    What do you want in the cob?
    What else would you like in the cob?
    Hot or cold?
    How big?
    What cob do you want it on?
    What type of cob do you want it on?

    They are nice though.

    Big difference when you go to Subway in the States - if you know what you want, the staff are straight on it & you don't have to go through 20 questions just to buy a sandwich.

    It becomes a game to see if you can order something in a cafe/restaurant without being asked any questions by the server.

    Subway's rubbish. The food tastes of added chemicals.

    Starbucks is one place I try to avoid....my friend likes it. I find their chocolate drinks sickly...so as punishment for dragging me there he has to pay for anything...:idea:

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion rich p, but the way the shops are popping up everywhere it seems that some people must like them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ps Personally I prefer a cup of tea, that's why I buy the Muffin and take it home to have with a cup of tea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Starbucks coffee isn't, it's coffee flavoured warm milk.

    I do like Subway however. It was never an everyday option for me but a safe fallback where I knew I could get a sandwich I'd like.
