Exactly what I was looking for


Do you know how many road trips I've desperately needed coffee (I'm addicted to the s'bux) but every exit I passed was a huge failure? How many times I attempted to google coffee locations based on the exit I'd just passed? A LOT, FRIENDS. MANY ROAD TRIPS.

Wonder of wonders, then came along this app. I've only used it a few times, and it hasn't been on a massive road trip, but so far it's wonderful. It takes my route and shows me the requested locales and how far away they are. It also shows them on the map with your route so you get a visual as well.

So happy this app was created! I'll never miss my coffee break again!

Great idea, not going to work for us.


We’re doing a lot of traveling across the country, and we like to time our Starbucks stops. This only allows you one destination, and minimal route options. It also only allows you to find coffee, but doesn’t allow you to be specific. I don’t want McDonald’s or random local shops, so it ended up giving me too much useless info. I love this idea, but I guess I’ll have to keep hunting for a shortcut when planning our stops.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback! You can use the Search feature to find all "Starbucks" along the way instead of using the Coffee filter. We're working to make search even better but searching "Starbucks" is probably one of the most common reasons I use it myself. Give it a try.

Route search? This is awesome!


Plug in where you’re going and the app lets you search for coffee, food, parks or Starbucks along the way to your destination. Pretty awesome.
