The sign out front says Starbucks opens in 3 days, but workers busy making final preparations inside told me Sunday they’ll open their new Lake Highlands Town Center location Monday, Oct. 1.
Employees said they couldn’t be sure what time they’d swing the doors open wide, but tabletops were shiny and coffee packages were stacked neatly on store shelves. The LHTC Starbucks features a drive-in window and small patio with tables out front.
If you’re a Starbucks regular, you may have your order memorized, but you’re in luck if you’re a newbie. The Huffington Post recently released a list of 8 “off-menu Starbucks drinks you never knew you could order.” For this warm weather, Starbucks has Iced Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Latte and Teavana Peach Citrus White Tea Lemonade, and they offer a Cotton Candy Frappuccino, perfect for a trip to the State Fair of Texas. When cool air sets in, you can order White Chocolate Mocha or Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato. Most things on the menu may be ordered hot or iced.
