Grande, Venti.... Vamoose

Sad news for those of us who are addicted to our morning triple venti, half sweet, non-fat Caramel Macchiatos.

As of a few days ago, the Starbucks at Lawrence and Broadway closed, and the sign on the door says it's permanent.

We've reached out to Cedar Street to get more information, and will update as soon as we hear.

In the meantime, you can go to the Starbucks at Target (Broadway/Sunnyside) or at 5244 Broadway (at Berwyn).

Or, give a nearby local provider your patronage. We suggest:


  1. This is what happens when $15 baristas decide to unionize. I see a lot of Starbucks closed and/or morphing into mobile app stores. Which means you can order through your app and pickup. No staying inside to drink coffee and work your laptop. Starbucks is also experimenting with the AMAZ store technology to use in its stores.

    1. LOL. Don't blame the baristas. Get off your high horse until you've walked in their shoes.

    2. Exactly. 😒🙄

  2. You and that $15 barista are more economically alike than you and any supposed capitalist boss.

    Engaging in class warfare meanwhile the billionaire robs you blind.

    Just because someone wants (and deserves) a livable wage does not diminish or reduce your happiness or quality of life.
