The initial inception of the iconic American coffee house, Starbucks, took place in the Cap 3000 shopping mall, to the west of Nice Airport in St. Laurent du Var in June, 2012 (my article here).
Starbucks will next be opening sometime this Fall in the shopping center, Nice Etoile, located in the city center of Nice. Since it is a chain, I wonder if and how many more will be opened on the French Riviera within the near future – stay tuned!

Are people looking forward to the opening? Some years ago, our younger daughter and I were in London and could barely find anywhere to drink tea that wasn’t a Starbucks. Of course, most people who patronize S’bux are coffee drinkers.
I think for tourists, it’s the reassurance of a name brand and knowing what to expect. It’s in a shopping center so should get traffic from that as well. Thanks for commenting and bon weekend!
Drinking Starbucks in France, oh nooooo 🙂
Mais, OUI! 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.
