Mountain View Starbucks on Cuesta closes permanently after business evaluation

The storefront at 809 Cuesta Drive in Mountain View, former home to Starbucks, indicates its vacancy, with black bags taped to the door and windows just days after its closure. A sign posted in the window around Christmas announced that the coffee shop would shutter permanently by the end of the year. A Starbucks spokeswoman said the decision was the result of a “continual evaluation.”

A note taped to the door of the Starbucks at 809 Cuesta Drive in Mountain View may have been missed by some, but it caught the eye of one regular on Christmas Day, who posted on Nextdoor what was written on that piece paper: The store would be closed by the year’s end.

“On Dec. 30, this store will be closing permanently,” the sign stated, signed “The Miramonte & Cuesta Team.” “Store hours for Dec. 30 will be 6:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Thank you for everything!”
