Starbucks has opened its flagship Reserve store on the ground floor of its Sodo headquarters (2401 Utah Ave S). It’s the first of 1,000 Reserve stores the coffee chain is planning worldwide. With high-end design touches similar to those of the Starbucks Reserve Roastery that opened on Capitol Hill in 2014, the Reserve store intends for customers to linger over Italian apertivo cocktails and baked goods from an attached 10,000-square-foot Princi bakery.
