The entire development is the largest, but not the commercial aspect.

From what I remember there are two commercial areas, with a large one being placed along the Pitts Memorial access and a smaller commercial area along the trans canada access.

This city needs more Starbucks locations! I remember going into the one on Stavanger Drive when it opened and was told that many more are going to be popping up in the city soon. Anyone know anything about more potential Starbucks locations? The west end and center city really need one! I've become addicted.

Chai latte, please. :D

Awesome...thanks! I was really hoping for one on Topsail Road somewhere.

I hope a few more second cups open up! .. I personally prefer them to starbucks, more different types of drinks than the coffee flavour in most starbucks drinks .. and they make my chai latte perfectly!

Whatever happened to the Second Cup location that was supposed to go downtown on the corner of Adelaide and Water? Did that fall through afterwards?

I'm not sure if I should post this here or in the restaurant thread.... oh well, here's fine, I guess.

I'd love for it to go downtown! closer to moi ;)

Yeah i recall walking past that renovated building on Adelaide and Water St. last year and they had an artist rendering of the building in the window with a Second Cup storefront on it. They seem to have totally rebuilt that building from the inside out so should be interesting to see what eventually goes there.

I would love for that to open up soon as its right next door to my work!

I don't drink coffee, but for Calgary forumer Rusty van Reddick, who visited here last Summer, downtown has no shortage of great coffee. And this guy is the biggest coffee fan you'll find anywhere.

In this blog post he mentions Rocket, Post, and Fixed with very high praise.

I don't really like second cup :( I find they always burn the espresso beans and put way too many flavor shots in your drink. Nothing beats a grande triple vanilla latte from starbucks. Except maybe beer.

I've heard many say that Rocket has the best cappuccino. I've had their cappuccino but it isn't a drink I usually get so I don't have much to compare it too.

I haven't had a cappuccino down there but they make great lattes. Rocket all around is nothing short of amazing.

With the exception of their prices.

I was looking around thescope.ca website and there is some talk about what restaurants will be going up by the new Empire Theatres. An individual by the name of, "Q" (who seems to be a very trusted source) identified that Milestones and another Starbucks and Subway will be setting up shop there. I find it a bit odd that Starbucks (and even Subway for that matter) would set up there given there are other locations nearby. Come to think of it, there are two Starbucks locations very close to each other on Kenmount... hmmm, interesting!

There are many Tim Hortons locations that are located very close to each other .. also those starbucks you mentioned .. and Two Subways on Water street, so it's not impossible, although I would love to see more variety
