Starbucks at New Hope Commons

Updated 3/2011-  Despite our lauding them for their family-friendliness, the Starbucks at New Hope Valley has removed all their kid equipment!  Please bring it back!!
 
I love when businesses that aren't kid-based surprisingly add a little something to keep children occupied. The Starbucks at New Hope Valley has done this, and it is a great addition!

New Hope Commons is located off of 15/501. You know the area: it is where Buy Buy Baby, WalMart and Old Navy are. The Starbucks is located in the newer shopping center, near the Red Robin and Play it Again Sports.

It is a standard Starbucks, with areas to lounge and coffee beverages and snacks to buy. But they have a table and chairs for kids with coloring books, blocks, and picture books.

They even thought to add a second kids table and chair outside on the patio. This
way you can, when the weather allows, drink your Frappuccino while your child has a pint-sized (or is it Tall? or Grande?) relaxation outside with you.

Interesting that the kids' seats are under the service counter. I hope no one spills a scalding coffee.

I had the same thought!! But when I asked the Barista she suggested that we just pull the table and chairs out and to the side of the store. So we did that. Because the bar is also very close to the door. So between the bar and the door, it wasn't a great location. Easy to move, though.

But yes, very astute!
