    About 15 mins drive from the office

    I use the one in Duddle quite often for business as they have the tables to work from with charging points but get very annoyed with constant tourists coming in to take 100s of photos of nothing

    Their latte tastes like water.

    At Starbucks, if you tip, they treat you like royalty. Nobody will tell you to leave as they all anxiously await your next order, haha.

    Tipping never occurred to me at Starbucks...do you slip the cashier an extra $20 or the person that hands you your drink at the counter?

    They usually have a tip box. At my local PC coffee they don't have a tip box. That's where a nice red packet for each worker at CNY comes in handy.

    You've probably never tasted a normal latte.
