Starbucks Sausage and Cheddar Sandwich

Starbucks on Urbanspoon Dropped in today and found the usual friendly staff here. Sometimes Starbucks locations seem to have new staff all the time, but there are familiar faces here and I've been going maybe once a month for over a year.

Watch out for the 8 AM coffee line-up that often goes out the door. Come maybe 10 minutes earlier to escape that madness that can continue past 8:30 AM. If you are looking for a place to sit, don't let that line-up scare you off because most people are getting their coffees to go.

Today I had a coupon to try their sandwiches ($4 for sandwich plus Grande coffee), which I wouldn't have normally done. On a whim, I asked for their "least ordered" sandwich, and they were honestly at a loss about what to suggests since apparently everything gets ordered. In the end, I was suggested the Sausage and Cheddar.

Sausage and Cheddar savory breakfast sandwich. Southern-style sausage patty and egg topped with melted aged Cheddar cheese on a perfectly toasted English muffin.

  • There is nothing wrong with the individual components of this item except the muffin itself: It was limp.
    • It wasn't in the paper bag for long enough that steam should have softened it IF it had been toasted.
    • At the same time it didn't cool quickly enough to make me suspect it had been microwaved.
  • I should have watched them prep it instead of fooling around with my coffee. However, bottom line is it doesn't feel as fresh as it could be. You can probably get a more decent breakfast item elsewhere.
  • Without the coupon, the price (including a Grande coffee) would have been over $6 after tax.
Either pass on the breakfast sandwiches or try something other than sausage and cheddar.
