Looking to pay homage to the source of your latte habit? Seatte’s Starbucks has become ubiquitous throughout the world, with coffee shops in such unexpected locations as the Forbidden City in Beijing.
It is hard to turn a corner in Seattle without finding a Starbucks, but you can check out their humble beginnings at the original coffee shop in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. You can get your caffeine fix and take in the atmosphere and unique logo of the original store. The place can get pretty crowded with tourists, so don’t fret. In true Starbucks fashion, there are three more shops within 4 blocks of the original, so don’t let the long lines at the original make you jittery.
