Starbucks Protaras touting for business

June 2, 2019

Whenever pass by, Starbucks Protaras always empty.

Now signs of desperation, Sunday illegally touting for business, handing out free drinks Fig Tree Bay.

It is easy to see why always empty. Two places to drink coffee in Protaras, Café Amárena and Miyu Coffee. Unlike Starbucks or any of the other corporate chains serving undrinkable coffee, these two indie coffee shops serve drinkable coffee.

Starbucks Protaras

May 26, 2019

Starbucks Protaras opened end of season last year. On the corner of the road leading down to Fig Tree Bay. Always empty.

Not somewhere I would be seen dead, but out of curiosity I walked in.

Staff with glum faces. No one spoke. No, hello, how are you, may we help you, would you like a coffee.

I walked back out, still glum faces.

One minute down the road on the left overlooking Fig Tree Bay, Miyu Coffee serving excellent coffee supplied by Taf.
