Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in for a coffee as Starbucks are pretty consistent. We also had a gingerbread man, which was nice. Nice location. Toilets were filthy for some reason and had no hand towels, so they need to up their game in that respect.

I visited here on my last time in Sydney and it’s a standard Starbucks. I joined the queue when I was here in February 2024- early Sunday morning - but it was too busy on a couple of occasions so I didn’t have anything this...time. It has a small amount of indoor seating and some seats and a couple of tables outside on the Elizabeth St side of the outlet.More

We are avid travelers as well as Starbucks coffee drinkers so whenever we travel, we pick up a Starbucks mug as a souvenir. I like the big "icon" Starbucks mug as opposed to the smaller YAH or current mugs. I haven't been able to find...an icon mug on sale at any Starbucks world wide in 5 years until I walked into this Starbucks on Queens Street. I was so happy that I bought three of them! Then I got a Homey Pokey latte (definitely something that you won't find in the US) with oatmilk that was delicious as well as a salted caramel donut. Yum! The staff was patient and friendly. What a great welcome to New Zealand!More

We walked to Starbucks from the ship and had good coffee and nice hot chocolate. This is a good place for free wifi, it worked well. Staff were cheerful enough. At least this place had toilet facilities not like a nearby Mc Donalds that had...no toilet at all .More

This cafe was open on Waitangi Day when many other places were closed, so it was naturally very busy!! The staff were friendly and the food and coffee was average quality - not bad but nothing spectacular. We were just happy to find a place...that was open to get a caffeine hit after a very late arrival into the city.More

The coffee here is always great but there are too few staff to serve the long line of customers. So, the hardworking staff have no time to upkeep the toilets which often run out of toilet paper. The disabled toilet has toilet paper but no...soap dispenser! Don't disabled people deserve to have clean hands? Come on Starbucs, hire more staff so you can up your game at your flagship store!More

Ordered an oat milk latte as I have a milk allergy. The girl taking my order didn’t ask if I wanted whipped cream on top so the girl making my drink added it to my drink. I asked for another one and the girl making...the drinks spooned it out and said “sorry about that” I then had to say that it’s now cross contaminated and I can’t drink it but they didn’t seem to give a f**k.More

It has gone through a renovation. The interiors are fresh with new furnitures and decors which makes the place seem more spacious. During the lockdown, I did not crave for anything else but a matcha green tea latte. When I am tired from work, my...husband would cheer me up with a Starbucks. :) It brings both comfort and joy to us both. When we have dinner out, we find ourselves dropping at Starbucks for that coffee fix. We just love Starbucks.More

my friend bronte got the black forest Frappuccino and claimed that it raised her from the dead! my friend nina says that her caramel vanilla Frappuccino was fantastic, but a tad too expensive! but we been knew... however, on a more negative note, my friend...eve (me) is a vegan and COULD NOT get the banoffee drink, which was absolutely criminal if you ask me, so starbucks gets one point off for that. conclusively, though, the ambience is immaculate, the jazz music is extremely vibey, and we had an above average experience. thanks starbucks queen street, you’ve been a movie.More

Had many coconut milk flatwhites from cafes all around Auckland and this one is the worst I've bought. The coconut milk is so burnt. I don't like wasting money so still trying to drink it but every sip is yuck!

It's not as if we needed the American version of coffee as versus the robust caffeinated variety typically served in New Zealand. One of our group collects Starbucks coffee mugs with the country name on them....so that's why we were there. The fun part was...seeing how different a New Zealand Starbucks was from the U.S. version. Let me just tell you in two words, "meat pies." Or how about "sausage roll?".It was just fun ordering a "flat white" as versus a "tall black." We actually went back to this location our second morning in Auckland in part because it was close to our hotel, in part because it was open earlier than a lot of other coffee shops and in part because the service was great. A really fun experience.More

I feel like this Starbucks is a throwback to the early 80s. The interior of this Starbucks is in desperate need of some TLC. Had to queue up, and once we got to the til, I ordered and the person working there was obviously new,...as I had presented my Starbucks app, they had to confer with someone else. Nope no app, no Starbucks card accepted either. Cash ! After having just from from Australia, where the Starbucks there accepted the app. It feels like a throwback. Anyways, the person was friendly enough and so I got my wallet out and got my cash out. The drinks were served up quickly as well as the food. All standard to what you'd expect at any other Starbucks. The interior of the Starbucks is large (the upstairs area included). Overall, This place needs an update, including using the app and accepting cards. Staff are good, and the food/drinks are what you would expect.More
