This Starbucks, at the Hillsdale Mall, is actually *outside* the mall; you have to go out through the Banana Republic, or just walk around from the Macy's or the Sears to find it -- and there isn't much in the way of signage inside the mall.

The location itself is very tiny as well; when I got there yesterday, there were about eight people milling about, and they basically occupied the entire little shop. Pick-up is right next to the entrance door, so even though few people were in line, you had to fight through the crowd to figure that out. There are only maybe three little tiny tables inside, with a total of about nine chairs -- but they have larger outdoor tables (four, I think) with more chairs outside. Of course, it's on the east side of the mall, so in the afternoon, you're in the shade, and the wind can whip through there pretty good.

They also messed up my order; gave me a white chocolate iced mocha rather than a regular iced mocha, but that may have just been a fluke of miscommunication (since there was such a density of chattering people waiting for their coffees).

There are DEFINITELY better, more convenient, and larger Starbucks out there. I'd recommend them. On the other hand, if you're already at the mall, and you're not fond of Gloria Jean's (which is actually *in* the mall), this is the closest Starbucks....

PROS: Starbucks quality coffee
CONS: Tiny, inconvenient location
