A new Starbucks has opened downtown — just one block south of the location on Monument Circle the chain vacated, citing safety concerns.

The big picture: Starbucks is now housed in the space formerly occupied by Napolese Pizzeria at 30 S. Meridian St.

The vibe: The space is way bigger than the spot on the Circle.

  • It's airy and bright with a spacious counter area for ordering, a bright mural and ample seating inside — AND OUT.
  • That's right. It's got a patio, y'all.
