If there are two things I love, they’re brunch and Starbucks. Between bottomless mimosas with eggs benny and sweet cream cold brew coffee, I feel content knowing that my breakfast needs are covered seven days a week, and I will never need to remember to buy eggs again as long as I live. Of course, it would make my life infinitely easier if I were able to get all of my breakfast and brunch requirements in one convenient location. Imagine a world where you can order chicken and waffles with a frappuccino, or shrimp and grits with a chile mocha. If you live in the Northwest U.S., this dream is about to become a reality, because Starbucks is now testing out a weekend brunch menu.
For incredibly lucky residents of Portland and Seattle, 78 Starbucks stores will be testing out a new brunch menu, and if it does well, it could soon roll out across the entire U.S. There’s no word on the official menu yet, but assuming I can order some French toast and a pumpkin spice latte in the same breath, you know I’m on board. Mimosas and a cake pop? Yes, please. Add on the fact that I’ll be able to accumulate bonus stars as well as make these purchases qualify for Starbucks for Life points, I think I’ll probably end up living there.
For any Portland or Seattle residents reading this, I beg you, please start attending Starbucks brunch immediately, because the rest of us need you. America needs you. If you flood Starbucks and start mobile ordering Bloody Marys in bulk, we’ll all soon be able to make our weekends that much better. So please, for the sake of all of us, get to Starbucks this weekend, because brunch in America is about to change for the better. .
