Evenings Food at Starbucks: You will love it!
Starbucks has just launched a new menu of food items for their Evenings stores. I mentioned this in an earlier blog article here. I had a chance to stop by the Terry and Republican Starbucks, and try all the new items. I ate so much food! This event was arranged by Starbucks, and I, and several other bloggers, ate everything! The partners kept bringing us more and more and more food. I was so impressed with the food that I had to write something up right away and share a few photos.
The bacon-wrapped dates were AMAZING. They were the clear winner, and everyone in the group loved them.
I paired the rosemary-glazed cashews with Sumatra from the Clover and loved it. The savory notes of these cashews pair perfectly with a big Indonesian coffee. Try this pairing, if you get the chance:
The partners at Terry and Republican brought out the truffled mac and cheese as one of the last items. The other bloggers and I dug right in, as you can see. Though at that point, I was already pretty full. It was still delicious. It’s very cheesy and rich. This is perfect if you are very hungry!
If you order the artichoke and goat cheese flatbread, be forewarned, it has a spicy kick to it.
Here are a few more food photos. These small plates get two thumbs up from me. I hope you get a chance to try the new Evenings food at Starbucks, and tell me what you think.
Last but not least, I was browsing the blog produced by one of the other bloggers at this Starbucks-arranged event: If you’re looking for a fun Seattle food blog, try the Tossed Salads And Scrambled Eggs blog. Oh yes, the FTC has a requirement that I say when I get something free and blog about it; Starbucks overfed me tonight. 🙂
Bacon-wrapped dates sound decadent! That’s something I’ve got to try.
Wow. The food selection looks amazing! If I didn’t know these photos were taken at Starbucks, I wouldn’t have thought it was! 😀
Are the food only available after a certain time or is it always on the menu there?
Hi Kaori! Yeah I know the food hardly feels like you’re at a Starbucks. I completely forgot to write about the time of day this kicks in: I think all the “Evenings” food item start at 4 pm, and are not available before that – as far as I know. Good question.
It is too bad these new foods are only at an Evenings SB. Too bad they put bacon around the dates! Do you think they will expand these new foods to other SB locations if they become popular? Also, I am sort of amused that you got invited to this event (not amused about this invitation), but yet no one from the Rewards team at corporate will sit down with you.
I was also surprised by the delciousness of the bacon wrapped dates. I loved it when they were sampling all the different kinds of food the other day. I’m having the mac and cheese right now in fact. Not really a fan. Thank goodness for the coupons they’re giving out!
Waah, the food looks delicious! I have not yet tried the evening food (or, come to think of it, any food from Starbucks…) menu but will definitely look for it soon! I’m really surprised to see such quality dishes! Hmm…coffee and bacon-wrapped dates…
It’s almost like Starbucks is re-inventing the Starbuck Cafe that use to be at 600 Pine Street (in the shopping mall) back in 1999-2000. I miss that place.
If you stop in before 4pm and ask for one of these items I doubt you will be turned down. We certainly would not tell you no at my store! Glad you liked everything, it is getting a really great response in Portland 🙂
Thanks Jenn! Good to know!
Looks good! But no evening stores in CA yet. Hopefully SF soon. I get to settle with that morning dry crusty pastries if I go at night. But bonus, sometimes the Barista will toss us a free one right before closing and they throw it away. But I’m not telling where or who.
