As well as being sullen and unfriendly , the staff appear to be racist. They asked me for my name not my friend (who is black ) when they made the drink. . When the guy came over to ask if he could bring us any of their over priced cakes (table service ) he had his back turned and only addressed me . He seemed affronted when she asked what he was saying. Starbucks is the most overrated brand and I've always found the service to be constantly bad and unprofessional the only reason I ever go in one is because most of my friends are slavishly addicted to the brand with its American BS ethos. I certainly would never go here of my own accord, its a disgrace that this location has been leased to them as the view is stunning it would have been more fitting and culturally appropriate to have something like a British tea room to do justice to the stunning view. But the council and the Princess street landlords just chase the quick buck and only the big companies can afford the long term rent on what used to be a prestigious shopping street of Scotland and now has all the soul and grace of a modern airport departure lounge.
