Coffee giant Starbucks opened up their most recent store this morning in High Wycombe.

Opening next door to Wenzel’s, who recently moved onto London Road last December, Starbucks will face tough competition from the bakery. 

Both are opposite the Lidl, which opened in October 2020, giving shoppers two options to get their coffee fix.

Walking through the doors at Starbucks the store had that brand new feeling as I headed towards the till.

Large electric screens showed what coffees and drinks are available with Starbucks lovers able to pick up their usual favourites.

There were cold drinks, smoothies and ginger shots in the fridge alongside lunch options such as toasties, sandwiches and baguettes.

A sign advertising a plant-based tomato melt toastie caught the eye which used grated coconut oil instead of cheese and was sandwiched together in marked sourdough.

A wide range of pastries was at the counter with baked goods such as croissants, pain au chocolates, muffins and brownies on offer.

Whilst there was no queue I walked straight to the till and ordered a mocha (as I'm not a coffee lover myself!) and a cinnamon swirl.

To my delight I was asked would I like it warmed up and I promptly replied with a "yes, please!".

The mocha cost £3.65 as well as a 50p charge for whipped cream whilst the cinnamon swirl cost £2.40.

An expensive drink costing over £4 but nothing more than I expected having been to Starbucks before.

The pastry was warm, soft and had a great cinnamon flavour running through the middle of it, a certain treat for a Wednesday morning breakfast.

As I looked around only a few tables had been taken up with some working and others just there for a general chit-chat.

The store will hope its queues start to build up as locals realise the popular coffee chain has its newest establishment.

Overall rating: 4/5. You know what you'll get food and drink wise from Starbucks but the winning factor here was the brand new interior which gives people a place to meet up, grab a coffee after a weekly shop, or provide a space to work.
