Where it all began....

The world's first Starbucks. Opened in 1971 in Seattle's Pike Place Market.  If you have ever wondered why the logo is a mermaid, this coffee shop sits along side the wares of the local fisherman.


Though though have decided to save the mermaids blushes and cover her up these days....





The original








The modern day logo

I'll arrange a manager's round in your honour tomorrow ... will it still be cheap as chips even compared to Seattle prices? Is there a premium for being in the first ever store? Tall Skinny Wet Latte with cinnamon, anyone?
