Starbucks Now Open On 11th And Wilshire

The controversial Starbucks on the corner of 11th and Wilshire in Santa Monica opened for business today.  And while the opening of a new Starbucks isn’t exactly headline-making news, this particular one is notable because it became a poster child for Santa Monica’s inexorable drive toward over-development and loss of local character, even garnering a petition drive to retain the previous tenant, Farrah’s Florist.  But the coffee giant has prevailed, and now sits firmly in command of the prominent corner across from Melisse.
