Last week I mentioned that a drive-thru Starbucks is coming to Santa Barbara or Goleta and that the location is unknown. Reader Alex says that Starbucks is building its new drive-thru location on the vacant lot at the south-east corner of Turnpike and Calle Real between In-N-Out Burger and IHOP. This information has not been confirmed so it falls squarely under the “rumor” category for now. This is the same location where a sign was posted briefly two years ago that read: “John’s Burger and Mixed Use Development.” If this rumor is true you will someday be able to cruise Turnpike for a Double-Double and Frappuccino without ever leaving your car. Perhaps IHOP will consider adding a drive-thru so we can complete a mobile trifecta with Buttermilk Pancakes.
