A brand new drive through stand alone Starbucks retail store. This store replaces the defunct Coco’s at the same location. I have no issue with the drive through as it fills a need judging by the number of cars using it. I nominate it for an Onion as it turns it’s back on the pedestrian on El Cajon Blvd. In order to access the store by foot, one must walk through the parking lot in the rear and cross the drive through lane. There is no entrance on El Cajon Blvd. This store is set up for a suburban strip mall location where the parking lot serves other stores and essentially, becomes the front of the store. Had a little bit of imagination been used, they could have reoriented the drive through and still had a pedestrian entrance on El Cajon Blvd. Starbucks should have been much more in tune with the changing neighborhood and encouraged a pedestrian street life rather than literally turn it’s back on the Boulevard.
