Starbucks, completely unavoidable

So while yesterday’s stop at Starbucks was intentional (we were looking to score a free wifi connection), this morning’s patronage is due to the fact that nothing more ‘local’ was open.
Turns out Sweden isn’t the only EU country where merchants sleep late on Sunday mornings.So we’re killing time before church starts in by far the largest Starbucks I’ve ever seen. I’d guess the floor space is about the size of a regulation basketball court, and the ceilings are almost just as high. The 15-foot windows face the Edinburgh Castle.
I can’t imagine what kind of rent they pay for this space. But based on what we paid for two lattes and a couple of scones, they can certainly afford it!

Feed my ego!
