Starbucks has opened inside the Hyatt Regency Atrium. In all honesty there couldn’t be a better setting for just this sort of café. Starbucks is a huge draw, because there are diehard fans all over the region who go crazy for their coffee. The atrium serves as the perfect backdrop for all of their caffeinated needs. It’s wide-open, naturally-lit, and pretty classy. Sometimes, there’s nothing better than drinking a latte inside a glassed enclosure of this nature. It’s air conditioned and mostly sunny in the summer. And in the winter, it’s like being in a snow globe, while being nice and warm.
Not only will Starbucks appeal to those staying at the hotel, it will also attract the day to day business crowd. And on the weekends, this is a place where people can congregate – a downtown coffee shop, open seven days a week, with long hours. Not only is the people watching great, there’s also plenty of café-style seating to relax and settle into. Per usual all of the Starbucks favorites are on hand. Plus, there are some really neat architectural elements inside the atrium, including a beautiful historic Genesee building facade. This is a superb addition to Main Street in Downtown Buffalo. I’m surprised that it took so long to figure this one out.
