Update: The city of Lakewood has announced that its brand new Starbucks, the first to open in the city, is set to welcome customers for the first time Friday.

The new coffee shop will employ about 20 people to help serve up its caffeinated concoctions.

***
(Original Story: 2/7/2019) Starbucks — known for its controversial cup designs, a former CEO considering a presidential run, and, to a lesser extent, its coffee — has announced plans to open its first Lakewood location.



The Seattle-based coffee behemoth plans to occupy 15027 Detroit Ave., a former Burger King that thankfully does include a drive-through window.

"Starbucks is always looking for great locations to better meet the needs of our customers," a Starbucks spokesperson told cleveland.com, confirming the location is opening this summer.

Unfortunately, that means Lakewood residents might have to travel upwards of several blocks (to Cleveland, which already has 17 Starbucks locations, including one at Clifton and W. 117th) to obtain a seasonal Cherry Mocha for Valentine's Day.

In the meantime, there are plenty of local spots to keep you caffeinated in the Cleveland area, as this list proves.
