I'm not a regular at Costa Coffee, but if that's all that's available whilst I'm out shopping then I'll happily pop in for a quick coffee or hot chocolate and a muffin, after all I do have a Costa Coffee card.
I find that the staff are nearly always polite, at busy times they can be a little harsh, but then can't we all when we're rushed off our feet, but the coffee is served hot and quickly. They have a good selection of drinks available, and often during holidays such as Easter and Christmas they put on even more choices. Yesterday I had one of this year's Christmas offerings White Chocolate hot chocolate with whipped cream and cherry sauce. It was lovely, very creamy, hot and with just the right amount of sweetness, well for me at least. My other half thought it was rather too sweet for him.
They also offer a good selection of muffins, cakes and hot toasted sandwiches as well as cold sandwiches and cold drinks. Ok so the sandwiches are prepacked and not made to order, but they are always fresh and very tasty, well the ones that I've eaten have been. And again they have seasonal ones on throughout the year.
Costa can be a tad expensive, just like any other branded coffee shop, but I do like their coffee and hot chocolate, although I can only ever have one cup as it's quite strong even with milk. They are my second choice coffee shop, after Starbucks, but then again Starbucks don't offer a loyalty card and Costa do and I do like getting free coffees, so maybe I should make them my first choice.
Summary: A Good Alternative To Starbucks.
