Diehard fans of Starbucks in The Berkshires have limited choices in terms of locations. The Coltsville side of Pittsfield has three, (one stand alone, one in Market 32, and the other in Barnes and Nobles), the other is inside of Target in Lanesborough.

According to the Berkshire Eagle, the former Friendly's site on Housatonic St. in Lee is most likely to become a Starbucks.

The Charles River Realty Group of West Roxbury outside Boston proposes to renovate the existing building and install a drive-thru window and maintain the walk-up window Friendly’s had, according Casey Birch of Solli Engineering of Monroe, Conn. and Boston. -The Berkshire


This would be the only location in South County, and would be convenient to folks heading toward the Mass Pike.

Birch says the drive-thru will be at the rear of the building, designed to allow up to 13 vehicles to wait in line without spilling out onto Housatonic Street, one of the town’s busiest road. The developer will use the single entrance/exit to handle customers arriving and departing the premises. -The Berkshire Eagle

Usually I'm a Dunkin' guy; however, when ordering at Starbucks I opt for the egg and bacon Gruyere bites. Hot and delicious.

Also, when placing your coffee order, do you order in Italian or English? I can never decipher the difference in sizes in Italian.
