Well doesn't grande mean large?
Well, it is pretty large. Its the size of a tim's large.
Yeah, it's their stock ticker symbol, and I've just adapted it as my shorthand...
Much easier than writing staarrbuckss every time. lol
Suonds like something I would do.
A friend of mine speaks Italian. She went in and asked for a large, the person at the counter went through there little speech about the sizes.
She looks at him for a second and then lets off this huge speal in italian.
He looks at her like .
She says, that's what I thought, give me a large.
I ask for a medium Caramel, they get it right every time lol.
Grande Americano (no-room)
however, im now officially an Uncommon Ground fan vs Starbucks.
cheaper, and imo tastes better (and just beside work).
Uncommon Grounds coffee is amazing, definitely one of the best in the City.
I dont go often but when I do I get a grande peppermint hot chocolate made with lactose free milk
I think we work near each other... pretty sure I've seen you downtown a few times and I just work up on Market St.
I work on the corner of George and Hollis in the BMO building. im out and about quite often
Corner of Market and Sackville for me
Next time I see you I will flag you down

Very soon you will be able to get them again!
i love to order a "Large" anything and watch the girls behind the counter freak out.... "you mean Venti?, we don't have large."
and by "freak out", you mean ask you whether you would like a venti or a grande?
I like Starbucks energy drinks...I stopped drinking Caramel Machiatto's when Boot's left
mid september...like 2 mins from my place...university and kent!
fuck. it's literally one block away. this is going to be bad.
I have never even set foot in a Starbucks.
I wouldn't even know how to order anything
Say: "Grand-EH Caramel Frappicino, please."
If they ask, "Do you want whip or caramel on top?, say "Yes"
Easy as pie ... and tastes even better!
If you don't want something coffee related, their strawberry/banana smoothies right now are pretty good too.
I'll take you there sometime if you want.
