Big Drinks: Tiny Toilets

93 Euston Road,
London , NW1 2RA
United Kingdom


Where is it?

Go to the very back left of the store. Go through the door. Male / Female unisex is to the right. For people who are disabled, it is straight on.

What’s it like?

Given the size of the drinks they serve in Starbucks, I wonder if they have really thought through the implications. Surely they must have anticipated increased use of the toilets? I guess not.

These have to be the tiniest toilets I have ever come across. You know those sleep pods the Japanese are in to? Well translate that in to toilets and that’s where we are. Really, they are very small. Nevertheless, they are clean and bright. I recognised the red tiles from the kitchen I had in my house before last which is not necessarily a bad thing. The drier works enthusiastically and is hot very quickly – which is important if you are going to have an electric drier. Overall, very functional even if it’s all a bit of a squeeze.

I also want to mention that this is one of the nicest Starbucks I’ve visited. The staff were friendly and the Hot Chocolate was an excellent antidote to my brisk walk from Marylebone Station about a mile away. Nothing like a large drink to warm you up!

Marks out of 10:

7 for cleanliness and utility.

Comments to the management:

More capacity would be good.
